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.
