learn how to accept that you won't be a viral sensation
  1. start posting what you want to post
    you'll notice that after a while, everything starts to look the same, especially on instagram. create your own visuals, words, presence. it's a lot easier.
  2. hashtag or not, do you.
    i see people whining about paragraphs of hashtags. i see people hashtag every. other. word. i see others doing whatever the fuck they want. follow suit- do whatever the fuck you want.
  3. never look at follower count
    do people like what you've created as your authentic self? only friends with your family? who gives a shit? continue doing you with the added bonus that you don't have to stick to a certain aesthetic.
