To motivate the girls out there is my favorite part of this blog. I, myself didn't have much confidence (in every aspect of life) But now I have changed. It has been a while to transform myself to become the 'new me' who enjoys living life through many good and bad circumstances. Being presence in the social media world has been a great fun, yet tiring. There are so many good things about it, but it also causes the negative feelings once in a while. Too many temptations to be like others, too many things to keep up in order to be in 'trend' like everyone else. However, it doesn't matter because we can absolutely be the best version of ourselves on the social media without following the rules. Tbh, it is the best feeling in the world.
NO NEED TO FOLLOW EVERYTHING THAT PEOPLE DO INCLUDING 'FASHION'
For the years of writing The Equinox Fashion blog, it has taught me many things, especially the individuality of being a fashion blogger. Don't get me wrong, I am not a perfect person because I am just like you guys. I followed every game on the social media, such as Instagram theme. I even purchased the clothes that I noticed on Facebook just to keep myself in the loop like every blogger out there. But really? Did it make me feel happy when I got a lot of likes and compliments? 'You look amazing, I like your suede dress','Gail, I love that lace jumper on you' Of course, these sweet words got my heart beating fast because I felt very happy. Whatever I bought was such a great purchase because it kept me in the game just fine. However, deep down, I stressed myself out just to get myself out there. To the point of limit, I had the break down moment for a couple of weeks because of what I did, which was a shit feeling after all.
So, I have learnt to let go. I keep telling myself that there is no point to follow everything others do. It is like getting rid of a weight on my shoulders once I have stopped such behavior before it started to consume me. I wanted to have the Instagram theme like every minimal blogger because theirs are so beautiful. I tried, but it didn't work well. Hence, why should I just stress myself out to get the theme like others? I tried green, it was good, but too hard to manage the color because I just couldn't control or change everything to be green, even though, I used the app. It just looked weird to change the table from brown to green. Totally unwise choice.
However, the more I have learnt to take it easy and be myself, I have enjoyed Instagram and other platforms even more. It's like I don't need to make mine look beautiful just to show others, only myself who satisfied with this aesthetic. That's enough.
So, how to be the best of you online? Log out from everything and take a break for a couple of days. I don't know about you, but it makes me question 'why do I have to push myself like this?' It is gonna make you ask yourself, and the answer probably is 'what is the point though?' You will feel like f*** it, I will do in my own way and just please myself. Once this feeling occurs inside your heart, you will start to become yourself, and even the better version of who you used to be.
