Emergerd my last post was a bit aggressive wasn’t it?
“F**k the algorithm!” – clearly I was all the bad feels that day! 🤬 The good news is I feel I have turned a bit of a corner and am feeling much less angry? resentful? about the whole social media thing.
I am not sure what has changed. I did unfollow people on Youtube and tried to be more conscious on Instagram, but I didn’t really follow through on only using the app for business and I still watched a fair bit of content. What I did find was a whole array of artist who were posting on social and doing it authentically and naturally and maybe that gave me both hope – I don’t need to be making this such a huge drama in my head, it can just be what it is for me.
I have definitely been conscious of spending too much time up my own arse in the past 12 months and I think many of these blog posts have been a therapeutic outlet to process these thoughts and see them in reality. And this is what I am continually realising:
All these worries were just small molehills of my own making!
Despite this revelation, I know well enough that in no way have I lost all these uncomfortable feelings, but just gained a little perspective perhaps. And I know that my focus has to remain on doing the work and I am finally knuckling down and working on my first canvas painting series! 💪
Sorry if that last post was a bit much, but if you are feeling the feels and you want some lovely people to follow on Instagram that will help put humanity back into your feed, here are some of my faves below.
And if you have any recommendations I would love to hear from you!
