We hear a lot about the negative impact social media has on our lives (raise your hand if you have Facebook-induced FOMO). But one beautiful thing about apps like Instagram is that they give us all an equal platform for our voices to be heard and connect us instantly to exactly what we need to hear — whether that’s an ASMR slime-squeezing video or a simple word of affirmation.

These truth speakers are less about getting likes and shares and more about sharing love; less about selfies and more about self-care. So for those days when you need a little reminder that you’re flawless, click through the slideshow above to discover 15 empowering Instagram accounts that’ll help you take that wisdom off your phone and into the real world.
