I woke up with the plan to write another one of my rages about whatever topic comes to my mind, but when I was greeted by a negative comment on my recent post – using the word pubertal – I decided to scribble down a short disclaimer to reference in the future – an efficient way for a lazy person like myself to get a few of those things that I thought should be clear straight once and for all.
I’d like to start this off by saying that I do not mind negative feedback at all, in a healthy scope, meaning that I am neither offended nor surprised that I don’t only receive positive comments to my rather upfront blabla on here. I honestly enjoy all of the feedback that I get, I wouldn’t have decided to expose my random thoughts online if it wasn’t that way – I know how this here works, so please, keep it coming, good and bad, but how about you don’t do it anonymously next time you want to be all mimimi pubertal and stuff?
This being said, I would like to continue by reminding you of the name that I’ve picked for this little project here: girlcasm. I don’t know what comes to your mind when hearing it, but I was thinking more girl and sarcasm rather than girl and orgasm or whatever you were thinking – or maybe not thinking at all – so why don’t we all keep this in mind when reading my posts? If you can’t, then maybe you should consider reading something else instead. You’re welcome.
Now that I hope we’ve made this clear, I’d like to point out that while, yes, my phrasing can be rather harsh, I do not only apply this to other people or things only – I try to keep the balance by being just as little gentle when it comes to myself. Like when I call myself shortlegs or admit that my attempts to pose in front of a camera look rather funny, you know? I’m planning to continue calling a spade a spade in the future as well, especially when it comes to myself, because I choose to take certain things less seriously. It’s fun. I’m enjoying this but I’m not forcing you to be a part of it – I certainly don’t seek to offend specific people, it’s more about playing around with impulses that I get.
And then finally: this is obviously neither a lifestyle, nor a beauty blog or whatever format that you’d associate happy thoughts, glitter and rose petals with. I’m aware that it would probably be easier to please and interest many people by posting monochrome outfits, pastel interior inspo or makeup tutorials on how to hide behind a 5cm layer of 20 different products – but it was obviously a path I chose not to take. For one because I think that there are already enough of those people out there who do a way better job at it than I ever could or wanted to and also because it’s just not who I am or what I enjoy.
Now that doesn’t mean that I’m necessarily a terrible, super negative person in real life – although, who knows, maybe I am 🙂 – it just means that I chose to share a specific, exaggerated part of my personality, which can obviously be extreme and obnoxious at times. I still believe that there are people out there who enjoy this kind of humor – not because they are terrible, negative people, but because they know when not to take things too seriously.
You know how they say: haters gonna hate – oops, I can be one myself – and you can never ever please everybody, even when you’re the world’s biggest sweetheart, which is why I don’t even try to go that way. So next time I say I ‘hate’ something, like Michael Kors watches, just chill and remind yourself that there are people out there who ‘hate’ broccoli and nobody ever goes crying about that.
Chill – it’s good for you, trust me.
P.S.: Did you know you can text me negative Feedback via Facebook as well? xoxo
