You Skip Across The Rainbow

Verse by Jenny Hayut

My Instagram bio used to read: “I skip across every colour of the rainbow” aluding to the fact that my interests are varied and I’ve always been able to adapt to different people groups in social situations.

You don’t need to “fit in” to be accepted.

What ‘box’ are you in? Are you trying to fit into a hashtag family on Instagram/Twitter? Do you actually feel lost as though trapped in a dream… Or a nightmare? Is your online existence a drawn-out panic attack because you are faced with a myriad of groups in which you want to fit in to?

You log on to your social media and are confronted with an onslaught of posts that you identify with and respond to but feel as disconnected as an internal decapitation. You tag your posts to attract people whom you feel are your crowd.

You probably feel like a leaf blowing in the breeze settling in different places yet nowhere specific. There’s a big clue in that vision:

You fit in everywhere!

You have many varied interests which is probably why you feel unsettled. I bet you’ve renamed your accounts, rephrased your bio and probably in real life wear any style you feel the day is telling you. Your wardrobe is likely to reflect your wonderful mind, a fabric Wonderland that often bewilders you. Retro Adidas tracksuit one day, ladylike chic then rock star.

Love who you are and embrace the notion of being as free as a bird who can perch on whatever branch she wants to. A butterfly flitting from flower to flower or a pigeon who refuses her nesting box. Change your look, your hashtags, your bio whenever you want. You appeal to everybody and can enjoy multiple forms of communication.

Flutter between flowers like the beautiful butterfly you are.
