I can hear how I sound. I wonder if I sound as staccato to those reading this as I do to myself.

I recently created an Instagram Account. I thought I wouldn’t be using it. At the moment I am. Will see how long that lasts. At the moment it doesn’t help me at all and I guess we will see if I keep it. Depending on whether it gives me anything…. I’d love to be in touch with you on there.

Happy Friday!!!

  1. I have an IG account (@serene_hilz) but I donโ€™t use it. Itโ€™s emotionally triggering even though I know most people hype up their lives. Itโ€™s done me more harm than good so I stopped using it last year but I might return in the future once my life is back on track. Itโ€™s a good networking platform which is the only benefit I really see right now.

      1. Iโ€™m doing my best to stay away from negative things, and controlling what I can control, like which platforms I use. Being off of social media (besides WP and YouTube) itโ€™s very peaceful. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒฑ

        1. That is really amazing! I’ve never really used social media asides from blogging and hope I don’t ever come across the negativity or hype you speak of…

          1. The negativity on WP is pretty minimal. Iโ€™ve had a couple of trolls/rude people but I handled it swiftly. I would never in a million years let a troll or bully ruin my mood on here. Itโ€™s great being able to choose who we choose to follow and engage with on WP!

  2. Interesting you want to see what you get from Instagram… with my blog, I look for what I can give. It doesn’t have to be like this. I’d relate this to some other social media platform but I don’t do any. Just my blog.

    Just a thought.

    1. My blog is usually about giving actually. Though not this moment in time. Instagram is about what I can get. I don’t mind that J. Because the world has to be give and take. At the moment I’m grateful for the support others have given to me. More in real life, but here too. I don’t think I’d have survived the past few weeks without it. I want my blog to be a safe space and will probably password these posts some time. Have it only be about love and light and glitter. But for now taking is okay. I know you read about what I want to do. That’s in order to give. To focus on others and giving. And with the people in real life who need me to give constantly. Live for them not just me. The world is always both. And now I need to take more than I can give.

  3. I had an Instagram account and did it for a few months, but then dropped it. Just had no time, and most of the IG posts tend to be hyped up for sure. I have a hard enough time posting to my WP account! Good luck with your IG’ing, Eliza!

    1. It’s funny people say about hyped. I haven’t yet seen it. I have time for now. Wonder what will happen when work starts next year… I couldn’t keep up with blogging when I had work.
      Instagram I actually opened a personal account for photos. And I like seeing others (nature pictures and quotes). I don’t really use my blogging account but you never know if will or won’t. I take people at face value… always. But still haven’t seen any hype there. Though I feel like some photos must be filtered and can’t be so perfect. Then again some of the pictures I’ve taken are awesome and I don’t know how to filter.

            1. I requested your blog one.
              K, I’ll delete this comment in a few minutes.
              I put it here before. Look at your emails. Otherwise message me tomorrow when you’re online or through your instagram account and I will send it to you. Just not happy to leave it up all night…

  4. I think itโ€™s great that you are keeping an open mind about it so you can ultimately determine yourself whether or not you want to do it. After all, it is about YOU and finding those activities that you could get enjoyment out of that could also provide some personal healing. Way to go, Eliza, branching out and trying new things are good for you and we are all in your corner!

    1. Thanks R. I really appreciate it…. I’ve found the support here these past few weeks invaluable. I’m hoping the light I see now stays here ๐Ÿ™‚
