Hello my beloved readership and happy start of autumn,
welcome stylish autumn! Many trends and it-pieces are awaiting as one-man-show or combined in one look. For now see how the independent woman does it.
Out of a given occasion (even though the occasion is going to take place one week after this article is planned but you know I am still making up my blog) and an occasion that is long overdue I want to talk about a certain kind of independence.
Everyone who knows me knows that more than loyal I am a big patriot. That counts not only for my Armenian origin or my dedication and loyalty towards everything I do but most of all for my family. In the very first place it was them who have given me the gift of life, took best care of me, never made me feel like something is missing and passed on important values to me. Having this in mind huge thank yous mom, daddy, gran, P. and J. (whose anniversary of death is going to be in six days). But socialization has more places and in the end you are going to grow your very own mind and feelings if you do not decide to live as minion of whoever or whatever for your whole life.
My best male friend and I have not long ago agreed that following long-endured hierarchies is obsolete. Like this it is for example a good ideal to “honor your parents” as it is said in the ten commandments but if you notice that the ones to honor themselves behave everything but honorable do not give in! You are not forced to do that but furthermore to raise your voice for justice and right. You probably remember that up to my article about friends and family I have frequently talked about a very certain group of people. I do not want to start again after so many time because whenever I think of it I am sick of being sick and finally want to be clear with myself and that topic but as they are the above mentioned overdue occasion I would like to say it finally: if you know that a person is not completely (al)right in its head the worst thing you can do is encourage this person, justify it (neutral pronoun for keeping anonymity) and always take this person’s party by giving it special treatments (or even if you do it in order not to show your community as vulnerable towards the outside then at least act different within the circle). As a highly respected friend of mine said in this context. It is good that your family had raised you but at one point you need to educate your family. Have you got what my friend’s statement was about? Let me put it into different words of my own and always preached conclusion: it was not about being not considerate or comprehensive at all but if at least one member of that group would have shared a heart for me probably further heavy steps would have not been necessary and many hearts would not have been broken.
The same goes not for a family or community but also for a nation and its people. It is no shame nor a crime to once stand opposite of your nation (without country-hate but opposite the government), admit mistakes and injustice practiced by your country and raise your voice for common sense and humanity. An educated, healthy grown and wise human is an independent human that admits personal or community mistakes with a pride head up and does not parrot everything the government says. Like this there would never going to be peace between two states and not at all in the world. Albert Einstein himself has the famous philosophical quote: If you want to be a real scientist dedicate yourself at least one hour a day thinking the opposite of what everybody else thinks.
This is independence, this is strength and this is pride!
My given occasion goes to Turkey and Azerbaijan (God knows that I do not hate the countries, their cultures or sweepingly every single person but if the government is inhuman the only thing every wise citizen can do is raise a voice and boycott their economy where it hurts) who have gathered together after 106 years to practice another Genocide towards the Armenian’s and Christianity. Dear Azeris and Turks, this is no territory-matter and you know it, the whole world knows it your people are celebrating in the capital while our people keep fighting to keep what is left. But what can you expect from historically known barbarics with such governments. It is no surprise that their people and children still say things like “we f*cked you guys to death” or “Armenia, does that still exist?” I have heard things like that directed to me and it hurts(!) but yet it is making me stronger. If no one teaches them better you cannot expect anything wiser. But one last thing, if you were right with your claims, the world would raise its voice in favour of you and not the other way round… think of it.
Save the Autumn Trends & It-Pieces
The independent woman starts into the cold season with damped colors on clothes as well as on the lips with either a strong red or dark berry. She teases you with leather-plissee-styles combined with lace yet she can and will show you her cold, cold should to the left or right but in the end with an it-piece such as loafers she remains with her feet on the ground. Being cold and gloomy could have not been more stylish, stronger and with such a statement than it was right in the messy Covid-beginning of the new decade. The golden 20s of the 21st century? That belief has been locked down like the major part of the world and dies with many innocent people. But if you remain independ you will not only survive tough enough but manage many hardships at once like you can gather many trends at once in one complete style without being too much but just accurate on point! Welcome, stylish autumn.
