A Letter To My Instagram : A Tale Of Obsessive Love, Too Many Reposts And A Lot Of Double Taps!
This is probably the first time I’d be saying this to you, but I think it was about time that I expressed myself. I don’t just mean through my off the chart usage of you as an application but through words. This letter is about just how crazy I am for you. Of course, the day and night checking in, hours of staying on top of you (you know that’s our favorite position), and the need to reach out to you first thing every morning is pretty expressive of my love for you. But I guess putting it in writing, and later on my #Instastory, is a gesture that you have well earned with your constant support in my life since 2012.
I will admit that at first, I couldn’t make much sense of you and didn’t think we’d ever click (pun intended). But looking at us now, I know that ours is a story of a love that is hard to beat. From once being wary of you to now finding myself close to being an obsessive lover. The fact is, my day starts and ends with you and no matter how unhealthy my parents call it, I am not letting you go.
We may have started on awkward terms, with hesitant interactions and a lot of rookie mistakes from my side, but just like pineapple on pizza, you too grew on me. From one post to another, you keep improving yourself to offer more and more to make my life a little better with each update. From quick news to sentimental quotes to funny memes and an endless supply of dog videos, I found myself incessantly drawn to you to the point I can hardly part myself from you for more than a few hours.

As I think back, I recall the number of boring parties you have made fun and bearable, the number of times you have portrayed me in the best of light (and filter) by giving me the perfect profile ever and the number of nights you have stayed with me when no one else did. You have always offered me moral support with heartfelt poetry at times and crazy funny memes at others. I won’t deny, there have been times when I have found myself so involved with you and all that you’ve had to offer that I’ve lost all sense of time. Sometimes I lose myself so much in you that I don’t even know how I reached the profile of that cute guy I only saw once in passing at a grocery store.
You have now become an extension of my own personality it seems. No conversation finds its end without me making even a slightest mention of you. You have honestly, ingrained yourself so deeply in my life, that it seems awfully odd and unsettling to imagine a world without you. You’ve given me so much in your own selfless ways. From a chance to hone my stalker skills to the perfect filters that make me look stunning even on bad hair days and even a canvas to put my best work out there. You’ve truly enabled me in this digital age and for that, I will always love and cherish you. If I am being a hundred percent honest, even more than Facebook.
Thank you for always being merely a touch away, for making my food look better if not taste better, for making all those drunk nights a little more fun and sober ones a little more bearable and for archiving moments of my life that I can always go back to, sometimes with fondness and sometimes with regret. But none the less with the satisfaction of knowing it won’t be lost. Thank you, for being you.
