I am NOT an algorithm

Updated: Apr 19

Let’s be authentic for a bit. I feel like a hypocrite. I’ve caught myself falling into the trap of trying to please the algorithm, and the problem is, the algorithm tends to erase authenticity. We all know that social media can be toxic, and a lot of the time it does not promote our authentic being. Therefore, I’ve found myself adapting my content to what “sells”, what’s trending, and what gets the most traction, instead of posting from my authentic being.

I don’t want to worry about what time I post, if I have the most popular audio, or if I get more followers or not. Just being is all about acceptance, so I want to be grateful in the present of the people I am able to reach right now, no matter how few. (Shoutout to you reading this by the way - you are amazing and I appreciate you so much!!!) However, the paradox presents itself when I wish that I could reach more people in hope of helping someone the way other people have helped me. 

But I know exactly what to do. In my last posts I’ve been talking about getting out of our minds, and that’s exactly what I have to do here, too. My ego is the one telling me I need more of this and better that, but my being is at peace, just observing the mind doing its thing. So, it all comes back to acceptance. Accepting those thoughts and feelings, even the ones judging myself, and letting them be, so I can let them go.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been a complete fraud throughout this whole process. I do enjoy making videos for Instagram, and I don’t mind going along with TikTok trends if they are something that I align with. Most likely, I will continue creating content as I have until now, but the change will be to focus more on my intentions. If I know what I make is coming from an authentic place, I know I’m on the right track. But while I navigate that track, “Don’t forget to like and subscribe!”😉

I am not an algorithm, I am authentic

Question: Are my intentions aligned with my values in what I am doing at the moment?

Affirmation: I am able to accept the now and trust that everything will work out exactly as it’s supposed to. 

Yours Authentically,
