Instagram, we love you, but we also sort of hate you. Mostly because we can鈥檛 figure out how we spend SO much time scrolling through our feeds to make sure we鈥檝e seen everyone鈥檚 photos 鈥 most of which turn out to be food and selfies. To help justify all those hours spent on the app, we鈥檝e decided to point out all the secret life lessons sprinkled throughout those photos you鈥檝e been seeing all over. From an empowering piece of body confidence advice to a nostalgic reminder, here鈥檚 everything we learned on Instagram this week.

馃幎Hello from the darker side 馃幎

1. Beauty rules are meant to be broken.Modern Family鈥檚 Sarah Hyland shared a new hair color on Instagram earlier this week. Even though it鈥檚 normal to lighten up for spring, Sarah opted for a dark, almost gothic shade of brown 鈥 and damn, it looks good.

When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL

2. You are in control of your body. Kim K already broke the Internet once, but she managed to do it yet again earlier this week when she posted this nude selfie on Instagram. Responses varied, but for the most part, people were pretty upset about it. Kim kept quiet for awhile, but then she responded to the controversy with a short essay on her website that was surprisingly eye-opening and really made us rethink how we react to situations like this.

3. Don鈥檛 ever let society pressure you to tie the knot. After you and your partner have been together for a few years, you鈥檙e probably going to start getting asked the same question over and over: 鈥淲hen are you two getting married?鈥 Maria Menounos just got engaged to her longtime boyfriend after 18 YEARS of dating. But you do you, ya know? No one knows when the time is right except you and your partner.

4. Everything old is new again. The 鈥90s have been cool for a while now, but this photo Sarah Michelle Gellar shared from the set of the Cruel Intentions reboot was totally confirmation that the decade is maybe even trendier now than it was then.

5. Be creative when documenting thosespecial moments. Life moves fast, and some major events can blow past you before you know it. It鈥檚 important to not just document them, but to also be creative when you do it. That way, when you look back, you鈥檒l remember more than just a boring photo. Need an example? Just take a look at MTV star Rob Dyrdek鈥檚 adorable baby announcement.
