Thoughts: Photoshopped Reality


Sometimes I’m afraid. I’m afraid to lose myself in all that mess.

Most of the time while reading blogposts from other amazing writes and creative minds out there I am wondering what it is that every post seems to be so careless – where are all the deep thoughts, where is all the struggle which life brings with itself? Where is the life in all those posts?

I was shocked when I realized that I somehow became a part of that concept. I don’t want to tell all of those wonderful people out there to switch their concept and to write about other topics now – and to be honest: if this was the case it wouldn’t be that healthy for us as well! 😉

But: Are we all really that happy? Aren’t we worried about our generation, our political systems, our future? Is it just me or did our generation became the epitome of ignorance and frivolity? We stay behind closed doors to protect us from the things we don’t want to see or hear. We take snaps of our joyful moments and pretend that this is everything, that this is the truth, that this is the life we are living. But what lays behind all those Instagram filters and happy faces? What comes after our picture-perfect healthy breakfast?

This is the photoshopped reality.

I always wanted to stay true to myself.

All I wanted was to keep me balanced, to keep my style, my opinions, my thoughts as they are. A few days ago I realized that I somehow became part of something I never wanted to be a part of and I’m trying to change it now – for the better I hope.

We all are so addicted to the media, but instead of changing a thing and saying a word about fundamental changes which are going on right now we leave a short Facebook comment under an article about the latest developments in the USA or a photo of the newest bombing attack and live on, hopping from one image to the next like a thoughtless zombie.

I really don’t want to blame anyone for that and I don’t want to declare myself as an example. But I’m worried about all those blogs out there pretending like nothing ever goes wrong in our lives. As a blogger you are somehow a public figure, no matter how small your blog is…

And as a public figure you have somehow the chance and also the obligatory to share your thoughts with the world and even more important with coming gernerations. I also know that fashion is about being glamourous, smiling all day and looking flawless in the latest collections of our favourite designers and I’m loving it and I don’t want to change this fact! (Please don’t get me wrong here!)

It’s wonderful, it’s creative and it’s important to keep up and celebrate the fun parts of our lifes.

The only point I want to make is: stay true to yourselves. If you are sad, mad, your world is upside down and you don’t know where to start and you feel like everyone around you is happy af – don’t believe everything you see.

Open your mouth, talk to the people around you.

It’s so important we start to get in touch with eachother again – with all out hopes, dreams, our laughter and also our tears.

Hope nobody feels offended by this post and it leads some of you to open their hearts again! ♥

Lots of love to all you wonderful people around there!

Btw: I’m still going to post shots of my food and latest treats on my social media, but I’m going to use this site more often for serious topics in the future also 😉

    Such an amazing look babe! This stripe mix is just brilliant! Love the dark tones and how you added a lighter blouse, which feels like a hint for the coming of spring! Your gold boots are the perfect shoes to finish the look, and with your beauty, taking it to another level, just fabulous! I agree with you about keeping in touch with he reality.
    Thanks for sharing and have a great start to the week!
    xoxo
