Please Stop

I joined Instagram a little over 18 months ago as an extension to my blog.
It is now my biggest platform and it is the one i love the most.
Without a shadow of a doubt, I have found a tribe of amazing women.
We all have one thing in common:

We are fierce.

Each one of us has a different background
Each one of us can educate and inform 
And all of us have a safe place to share
You hear week after week that someone has taken issue with

Instamums
Single mums
Working mums
Stay at home mums
The kind of trainers I wear
People in general

STOP IT
STOP IT NOW

At what point in your life did your brain stop listening and decide that it is OK to knock another human down.
A human you know nothing about.

How would you feel if someone came up to you in the street and said right to your face 
‘You are a terrible human being’
‘You are not good enough’
‘Your Insta life makes me sick’

How would you feel if your child, niece, nephew, best friend, sister, brother came home and said

‘Someone told me i was worthless’
‘Someone said i’m a bad mother/ father/ sister/ brother/ human’

COME ON

You do not have to like everyone
You do not have to have the same beliefs
Parenting ideals
Life goals
Taste in pizza toppings

This is the joy of being an individual and being fortunate enough to life in a democratic world. 

It saddens me to see people who I really admire being pulled to pieces on social media.

If you don’t like someone 
Scroll on by
Even better?
Stop following them

My feed is full of people and places I want to see, 
To feel happy and inspired 
People who I engage with
Next time you go to type something mean, think about what you would do if someone said that to you 

This world is tough enough

  1. Love your words Sinead. I agree with all you have said. Find love in joy in all you do and others rather than beating one another with judgement all the time. Xx

    1. Absolutely. It’s so easy to get caught up in others lives when we have nothing to do with them in real life 🙈
