Reading OKREAL was a great reality check for me. It’s nice to be able to immerse myself in articles that are actually raw, honest and meaningful.
I’ve been religiously following many many blogs for a long time and I found it increasingly difficult to engage with most things that came through on my Feedly page. I hate to admit this but devouring blogposts lacks in meaning for me nowadays. All I want is to be in the know and indulge in beautiful photos. Mentally, I’m bound by excitement, emotionally I’m not really growing as a person. I’m also getting weary of comparing and wondering what is it about WLLWPROJECT that isn’t quite good enough.
OKREAL is almost like that best girlfriend who comes along and puts you back on the right track. She asks you questions and makes you think. She makes you want to be you instead of the generic sure-win formula that people tried to market to you time after time. She tells you to stay strong and that it’s ok to fail. She tells you that she too suffers from a bunch of yucky emotions.
It’s nice to be reminded that being real is actually desirable…
that authenticity is in actual fact beautiful.
