The beauty of starting over 

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?

      1. Mine was definitely for the wrong reason. I tend to try and people please and sometimes I miss that mark by a mile or two. I’m learning that I can’t please everyone.

  1. Yessssss! I deleted my Facebook for different reasons (the real-names policy, which is bullshit), and everybody was all, “Whaaaaaat, no!!!” LOL. I haven’t regretted it for a second. Now I’m more on Instagram and Twitter, and I allow followers only on a case-by-case basis. I will block their ass in a heartbeat if they start to feel wrong, but so far, so good. My social media peeps almost entirely uplift me, and what doesn’t uplift me at least informs me.
