The ugly truth behind perfection on Instagram: 4 tips for keeping it real on social media

Have you ever felt the pressure to be perfect on Instagram?

The pressure to…

… create a perfectly curated feed full of picture-perfect images?

… write perfectly interesting and inspiring captions over and over again?

… have the perfect bio, the perfect hashtags, the perfect amount of engaged followers?
