We are told to be wary of who we allow into our lives and to surround ourselves with positive people rather than those who assist in creating a toxic environment, but have we ever thought about who we follow on social media?

Have you ever found yourselves becoming frustrated because you don’t have their life or their belongings or opportunities? Do you find that you compare yourself to someone online? I think most of us are guilty of this. We are not obliged to follow anyone who isn’t having a positive influence on us otherwise how are they an influencer? It’s made me question what an influencer is and for me it is a person that you can relate to on multiple levels who influences a positive change in YOU. Whether that’s decisions you make, a path you take or a change in mindset. I can’t help but feel that the term influencer is used in place far too often as a term for “sales person”. I see it all the time. Some eager fashion blogger tagging their expensive, beautiful outfits in a perfectly curated image of themselves with the hashtag influencer. I do wonder to myself “what exactly are you influencing here?” Have you spoken about anything deep or sparked a discussion about a real subject? Have they passed on some wisdom anywhere? Most of the time no. It’s empty. All I see is a hoard of people influencing nothing but themselves. We are drawn to the things we don’t have. We live vicariously through others when we aren’t able to and people are VERY conscious of this. In our real lives we are told to purge those in our lives who are toxic and that shouldn’t stop with our online activity. Follow those who TRULY inspire you. Who have a story to tell. Who talk about their troubles and issues openly and honestly. Who aren’t transparent with their content. Those who carry themselves wonderfully. Those who do engage and support their followers fully. Those who have a real connection to their fan bases and those who are GENUINE and stick to their principles. They are the true influencers. ❤️❤️❤️
