#imperfect = I’m perfect

DSC_0450

Let’s talk for once about real life struggles and let’s leave all the shiny fashion circus behind us. Let’s talk about ourselves, about the fact, that nearly everybody of us isn’t happy with themselves. These negative feelings are mostly released by the media or maybe also by some stupid and ignorant people in our environment.


Now, with 23 years I can honestly say I’m happy with myself, exactly the way I am. But it wasn’t always like this, I remember my teeny years, where I almost hated everything about me. Typical teenager problems I guess. Even if I knew, that it was absolutely stupid to chase all these exaggerated (and photoshopped) beauty ideals, I secretly compared myself to the girls in the magazines and tv. Oh her boobs have the perfect size, oh her hair is so shiny and what a beautiful blonde tone and oh what a beautiful, white smile. Now remembering these thoughts I had with 14/15 I start laughing about myself, then none of this is/was real.
Of course it’s also about growing up and getting older to see clearer and more realistic and not to get blinded by these things. Because in the end we all know, that nobody is perfect. We should just start loving our little imperfections, which makes us interesting and individual! Also Esprit is aware of these struggles and in order to fight them, they launched the autumn campaign #imperfect (which shows the parallels of imperfect and im perfect). For this campaign they didn’t book real models, but just normal people like you and me. Everyone with its very own beauty and little imperfections. With the hashtag #imperfect on Instagram everyone can be part of this movement.

    I definitely get better at this with age, but it is a very sad thing to see in the world. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it. Great sneakers by the way!

    Ein wunderschönes Outfit. Ich glaube heutzutage ist kaum jemand zufrieden mit sich selbst. Der Druck der Gesellschaft was Perfektion angeht wird immer größer, selbst 10-Jährige machen Diät und schminken sich um sich der Vorstellung der Allgemeinheit in Bezug auf Schönheit zu beugen. Ich finde das ganz schrecklich.

    This is great to know. I am glad Esprit is doing this. There is a lot of pressure on young girls to look perfect, growing up in a photoshopped world. I am happy in my own skin at 57, so I think our values and expectations do change in a good way.. with age.

    This is such a wonderful campaign! It is really important to make people understand, especially young ones, that we are all perfect in our own way and we don’t need to look like those photoshopped models to feel confident about our appearance! We all have flaws and that’s okay! If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be special 🙂

    Thank you for talking so openly about such an important topic. I’m sure there are lots of girls, especially teenagers who are reading this and thinking, ok so it’s not just me and it’s ok to not always be perfect! Glad to see such a large clothing brand jumping onboard, good for them! xx http://www.celebratingthislife.ca

    I REALLY needed to read this today. I’ve come to accept myself and be happy with myself, but what can I say? Sometimes, like this week, it becomes a struggle all over again, and I have to stop comparing myself to others and focus on the things I like about myself. Really love your outfit too!:)
