I love the Internet, and I am guilty of spending too many hours trawling through various articles, YouTube videos and Instagram, and how I love Instagram. But I’ve noticed something over the last couple of months. There seems to be ever emerging social media accounts popping up all over our feeds that are taking the piss out of almost anyone and everything in their paths, the rise of the meme accounts.
We all know the types, those who have product placed their entire house, the duck face of years gone by, the head tilt while staring into the screen with lighting to hide cellulite, wrinkles, pimples and other normal human features, but heaven forbid they should appear on our social media photos!
The Internet and those behind those meme accounts we spend hours tagging our #BFF in are taking over, and it’s fucking hilarious.
You see, the thing is, there is an unspoken language amongst the masses, the language where you give the person that eye when someone is talking shit or blatantly lying. It’s the character we slip into to endure life with some people sometimes. It’s the person we become in the workplace when having a meeting about not stealing Barb’s lunch. It’s that underlying awesomeness of being a human that binds us all together, and now it’s found a new home online, and it’s taking no prisoners.
If you’re a wanker that takes too many selfies and claims you’re not a narcissist, the meme accounts are going to get you. If you have taken a still shot of yourself while gazing out across green pastures and have posted a quote about how you’re taking downtime to reflect on life, the meme accounts are going to get you. If you’ve gone out for coffee with your #BFF or even #BAE and you’ve captioned something along the lines of “this guy” or “this girl” and about how they’ve been there for you every step of the way, the meme accounts are going to get you. If during every 5 minute yoga stretch you do once a month, your phone is nearby and it captures a photo of you and then writes an inspirational quote about how Zen you are and how it’s your journey and no one else’s, the meme accounts are going to get you.
Basically, if you’re a dick head on the internet meaning you are a dick head off the internet, you’re pretty much going to get rolled by someone who sees the world for what it is and they will meme you.
By all means though, the meme makers have definitely been drinking that hatorade and you don’t need that negativity in your life. You’ve come so far on your journey and never forget that you’re worth it. It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. Surround yourself with those who lift you higher and be sure that you document every moment on Social Media so everyone knows how well you’re doing. Remember, likes, are validation that you are doing well and a scientific methodology for measuring all that counts in life. You can sign up to my online course on this here.
To all the meme account operators, keep doing what you’re doing, you speak volumes to the masses that are tired of the propaganda thrust upon us by sponsored Instagram accounts and product placement in photos of bodies that the 9-5 worker will never achieve. To those that feature in these photos, we love you, we tolerate you, but we don’t respect you. But this shouldn’t matter to you, because ultimately you respect yourself enough to walk away and not listen, this is your life and you’re empowered xx, PM me babe if you wanna talk xx, K hun xx.
