If You Don’t Follow Glennon Doyle on Instagram, You Need To. NOW. Here’s Why.

I’ve heard it a million times: “The internet is a place of lies. People post their best and forget to mention that life is hard. It’s just a highlight reel.”

Deep down, I know that. I know the things people post aren’t “real” because I like to post lies too. I like to build my “brand” and expand my follower count and present the image that I have it all together to the world. 

I think a lot of people do this, especially on Instagram, because looking polished is so much easier than being real. 

Unless you’re Glennon Doyle.

Doyle is the author of two New York Times Bestselling books: Carry On, Warrior and Love Warrior and she’s an absolute Instagram QUEEN. 

Her feed is funny and relatable, inspiring and beautiful. She posts real things in an honest and empowering way that cuts straight through the masks we all wear on Instagram. 

If you don’t follow her, you should. But in case you’re not convinced, I’ve compiled my top five favorite posts to prove that Glennon Doyle is someone you need in your feed.

  1. 2. She amplifies women

    This! Post! Is! Amazing! 

    I hope I can be this cool when I grow up. Social media provides such an easy place to compare ourselves and our lives with others. Every time we see a picture, we are given the option to cheer for someone else—to validate them with a “like”—or to ignore them and keep scrolling. It’s like a breeding ground for microaggression against ourselves and our fellow human beings. But Glennon Doyle stands here in the middle of the madness, unafraid to cheer for women and humanity and herself. She wants us to stand together, amplifying each others’ voices and loving who we are. 

    Go Team! 

  2. 3. HONEY!

    Come on. Look at her doggo, Honey. Glennon loves her. I love her. That’s all.

  3. 4. She shuts down body shaming

    I came across this post recently and it just summed up so many things that I feel on the deepest of levels. I’ve allowed unrealistic and unhealthy expectations for the female body to become internalized. And I know I’m not the only one. I can’t count the number of conversations I’ve had with other women about how insecure we feel in our own skin and how we just wish we could change. How we wish we could be “perfect.” But this post just challenges all of that nonsense. It contests every false ideal of beauty in the most beautiful and genuine way.

  4. 5. She just gets it 

    I’ve been called “too much” by so many people. I thought I was the problem and that I should just “unmuch” myself to fit the world. But the first time I read this quote, I felt heard and understood, like I had been given permission to exist as my very extra self. I loved it so much that I screenshot and tacked it on my desk. I read it once a day and have it memorized as my mantra. I am not too much. I will not unmuch myself.

That's all for now.

In conclusion, Glennon Doyle is the bright light your Instagram feed needs, so go follow her!!
