Because it’s Who I Am

Of all the various social media platforms I think Instagram is my favorite. The negativity on Instagram is so minimal and easily avoidable. I suppose that could be the case with all social media platforms, depending on who follows who, but it’s been my experience that Instagram offers more positivity,  encouragement, inspiration, and is a much more calming platform than the rest. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy keeping up with family and friends on Facebook, but other than that I could definitely go without Facebook. In fact, I have and the only thing I missed was family and people I consider to be close friends.

I have several examples that I am going to share with you that can better explain my preference to Instagram vs other social media platforms, than any words I could come up with. Do you know how a song can sometimes can perfectly capture what you’re feeling? These posts from Instagram I’m about to share do the same thing in many ways. None of what I am about to share is mine. I made visible, when possible, the names of the parties who posted the images. I might comment or explain what some mean to me or I might not. Each one of these spoke directly to me. I’ve felt each one, I’ve lived each one, I’m currently feeling and living many of them. I feel compelled to share them for 2 reasons. First is to express why Instagram is my preferred social media platform and second is to share a very personal piece of my heart, of who I am at my core, the essence of me. I may not have created these, but I am very much connected to them through emotion and experience.
