Life is about being honest towards the person you are! 4. April 2017 – Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

I spent many years trying to be myself. I can tell you now, it was a waste of time. Trying was just not good enough. Being is the only way forward. Some years ago, I figured out that most of my worries and insecurities were based on what I thought other people were maybe thinking of me. Sometimes I was right – most of the time I was wrong. One morning I decided. No more. I decided to stop wasting my life thinking about how to please others, people who didn’t even mean anything to me.

For me, life is about following your dreams. Life is about being honest towards the person you are and the person you wish to become, as long as you don’t harm anyone else along the way. Life is about feeling free.

Prejudices and unwritten rules of what you can and cannot do are present in all walks in life. People are not treated right because of their gender, race, sexual orientation or culture.

I know this. I have experienced it for so many years. I still do – but I have stopped thinking about. The best way of living is to do what’s right for you, and at the same time, support other people doing their thing. I know this from experience. Ever since I started living this way, my life is so much more enriching. If you’re not already doing it, you should try it.

I want to create a community – united in support of individual freedom. A community that supports personal choices.

We want to enhance life for everyone. We cannot do it alone – we need your support. We can only truly become who we are if we support each other in fulfilling our different life choices. No one should stand alone.

We all have things in life that makes us feel different, things that make our paths less easy to walk because we are afraid of not belonging, afraid that other people will deselect us, afraid of leaving our comfort zone.

For me, it is about the right to wear whatever I desire – it’s about fashion, shoes and clothes. Style and beauty. Our hope with our label Laurentin/Cosmos is that we can push equality up to the next level and empower and support people in their search for individual freedom.
