Is instagram bad for your mental health?




Instagram is Really Bad for Your Mental Health

Oh yes, it is! Don’t you think so?

On Instagram, it’s all about likes and followers nowadays. How many followers do you have? How famous are you on the gram? I deactivated my Instagram because I was tired of not getting likes and followers. I got some, but not that many, and it was frustrating me.

I felt like a nobody, like most women these days. Women are all insecure, hating on each other, getting plastic surgery, fillers. We have an insecure and lost women generation. 

I dont want to hate too much on kimk, (I mean I always always say Kardashians, but she is the only one who ruined women and made young women feel insecure.). thats evil making others insecure. 

And then there is me, seeing that I am talented and loving myself a little more, but no the good guys are one. Missed big chances. 

But of course, it takes time to get seen on the gram and to get likes and followers. You actually need to post every day or multiple times a day. You have to be online 24/7, and of course, the most famous influencers have been there since the start of Instagram in 2010. So that is already 12 years ago! Can you imagine?

The Pressure of Instagram

Instagram can be frustrating, right? You see so many beautiful women on the gram with their perfect, rich lives. A lot of people use Photoshop, of course. Naturally, you look prettier with make-up. I just love this brand! If you are going to be two-faced, at least make one of them pretty.

But the gram gives me headaches and stress sometimes. I like showing my outfits and my style, but without likes and followers, you are nothing on the gram. So then it’s best to start a blog, show your style, and make sure people come through Google to your blog. You can be Google famous. A good idea, right? Focus on Google and SEO content so people find your website, see your looks, and who knows what will happen on the gram.

The Effort Behind Instagram Fame

Of course, I know a lot of successful influencers with lots of followers are busy working on the gram for years. Maybe even since the start of Instagram in 2010. Their success on Insta did not happen overnight. The Kardashians and Jenners were on the gram since the start, so you just can’t compare yourself.

But who actually says Insta will still be here in 10 years? I believe the hype of Instagram is getting less. Maybe TikTok is going to take over, or some other platform. I do like seeing more and more women showing the real you, without Photoshop, and without pretending like life is great all the time, because of course, it’s not always fun and happiness. I really like influencer Rianne Meijer. She shows the real vs. not real pictures. Check her out. She really set a trend on this and she is internationally famous because of this trend. She has 1.5 million followers and she is also from the Netherlands.
