Honestly Instagram is the home to home goals, life goals, relationship goals, you name it, we probably get Instagram envious. I know I tend to, I’m not afraid to admit it! Especially when it comes to homeware, beauty tables and everything else. Honestly I think I have the green eye of envy all of the time, but do you honestly feel pressured into living the perfect Instagram life? Whether it is yes, no or you’re not sure I’m going to be looking at whether we all do feel a little pressure to have that perfect Instagram life.
We all know that life is never perfect, even if we tried, it doesn’t work like that. I try to be the kind of blogger that shows the good and the bad, even though I try to take a good flat lay photo, and generally try to be a pretty good blogger but I do feel a lot of pressure to have the perfect Insta life.
I’ve been working so hard on my Instagram for the last 6 months and I’ve seen such an improvement, I mean there is obviously more to do, there always I, but I’m not going to give up. I’m going to keep working hard at what I need to do.
There are some people who do such an incredible job and I mean absolutely incredible, I look up to them so so much! However I do feel like there is a lot of pressure to make sure that your photos are good enough, not only that you want people to see your posts and enjoy them. There is nothing wrong with that, however the changes in Instagram make it incredibly difficult for the people who do follow you to see your posts. I end up seeing posts from 3 days ago that I missed because they don’t show in chronological order. Anyway as normal with my posts I digress.
I’m definitely learning that there is no need to be pressured into living the perfect Instagram life. Instagram should be used as a beautiful photo diary, a photo diary that we can refer to when we want to remember certain things!
As long as you are creating incredible content, that it relates to what you want to put across, it doesn’t matter if it is good or bad, show all sides of your life, it doesn’t make you a bad person, it shows that you’re human. We all go through good and bad times, but don’t forget that your life doesn’t have to be perfect, just real.
