So I decided to delete my Instagram for the second time.
I’m sure people will say it’s crazy. “You had over 6000 following. You were on your way”. Hell I heard it twice today already.
But where was I on my way to? I had 61 percent men. Who weren’t buying books or reading my blog. They were waiting for ass shots. And though I love looking at myself (please believe me *in my Taraji P Henson voice*) that certainly isn’t what I am aiming for.
I just felt a ton of negative, fake and an unreal depressing energy on that Instagram.
Hopefully I can bring a better more focused and more cautious approach to my social media now. Before it was all about the likes and the follows. Now I just want a safe comfortable space.
I want to follow people with purpose and beautiful auras. Not just pretty faces and top celebrities. But people who can inspire others to be better humans. I want to not only be a good writer but a good human. And sometimes you need mentors for that.
Sometimes you want people who will give you positive insight. Positive energy in general especially as a creative. We all need a virtual community who can lift us up on our journeys…right?
Wishing you all a safe nite and a beautiful peaceful mindset 🌙
