Idolized numbers

In the short four months that I have transitioned my diary like Tumblr blog in to a public platform I've learned that in this influencer community numbers are huge in just about every aspect of social media. For some its a major factor on how much they are getting paid (If a social media platform is a source of income) or for the common folk its just hitting 100 likes on instagram for the heck of it ,but for all of us it seems like we see our worthiness in some arrangement of numbers. 


Ive heard time and time again people not understanding why a certain picture didn't have high engagement and it proceeds to bring insecurity.. it begins to create the idea that our beauty and success is held in numbers. We can't allow lies to become truth and the only way we do that is taking its power. The number of likes or views we receive can't hold us captive and if we know that je na sais quoi is deeper than outer appearance the numbers won't matter.
