Instagram is where I am the realist.

Growing up in a digital world everyone has heard that phrase, “wow, her Instagram posts are so fake.” In that rare chance, you never have, this is for you.
Despite what they say about social media, I find these outlets to be the only place that represents the true me.
Since I was a kid, I was always interested in sports, fast cars and other activities that were not necessarily considered ‘girly.’ As a child, teen, even early adult, I often hid my interests from some of my closest friends, in fear they would judge me.
This frame of mind all changed when I downloaded the social media application Instagram. I discovered that people connected to the basis of similar interests, which encouraged me to share my true passions. At first, I did not let friends from school follow me, in fear they would not like my posts. However, over time I became open, free one could say. I stopped caring about what those around me thought and starting expressing who I really was.
Today, I have almost 1000 followers. Not because I post selfies of myself, but because I post fast cars and concert videos. These people that follow me are interested in the REAL things I do, not what I pretend to do. Luckily for them, I follow those whose posts interest me. Minimum celebrities or business, lots of NASCAR drivers, radio stations, track friends and concert junkies, because those are the people whose lives are interesting to me.
At the end of the day, everyone’s opinions will always be different, even about social media, but the way you choose to express yourself is up to you! That right there is the beauty of living in a digital era.
