I believe that one thing that is killing our society is the word ‘influencer‘. I have seen that word on so many Instagram pages that it is laughable. Now I want you to answer this question honestly: the people who claim to be influencers, who and what are they influencing?
You see, every one of us is an influence on someone’s life. We have people who influence us and believe or not, we influence other people no matter how little. But, what kind of influence is it? The type that makes someone feel worse about who he/she is, or the type that makes the individual better?
Just think of it. Every ‘influencer’ talks about makeup, outfits, hair, they take pictures in nice places and they basically look as if all is well with their lives. The problem with this is that most times you leave their pages worse than you came into it. Why? Because they make you feel bad and imperfect.
I don’t know about you but there was a time I stopped going to Instagram because it was affecting my mental health! Like, after viewing pictures of ‘perfect’ beings, I will legit think about my life for 30 minutes.
The thing is that these people talk only about the societal definition of beautiful. They have this beauty that can’t be obtained naturally and want you to follow suit. There’s the hourglass figure, six-packs and so on. They don’t understand or want you to understand that beauty is beyond that.
Beauty is our personal values and attitudes. It is when you are body positive and body neutral. Beauty is when people come to your page and leave happy because of the value of what they had seen.
What kind of influence do you want to have? What do you want people to know you for? Do you want to be known for having a six-pack or for being a man of value? I made a decision some time ago to be significant and to have a positive impact on people and not to make them feel less about themselves or like they aren’t beautiful enough.
Believe or not friends, you are always being watched. So let your life be of significant value to people around you.
You don’t need to have a million followers to be a significant influencer; all you need is a good value system. Ask yourself this every day: What kind of influence do I have? What value am I adding?
