Can you guys help me pick a filter?
I don’t know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan.
What should my caption be?
I want it to be clever
How about “Livin’ with my *****es, Hashtag live”
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?
Let me take another selfie
Wait, pause, Jason just liked my selfie.
The above lyrics are from popular song #Selfie by Chainsmokers. With the social media taking a toll with its filters and hashtags, check-in and relationship status, dating apps and texting; everything begins and ends on the chats. Proposals and breaks ups are no longer a challenge as people don’t have to meet the person personally to express the feelings. The expressions are sent in the form of emoticons and the digital kisses mean more than the real pecks.
With the world revolving not in the orbit of the sun but the orbit of network of our mobile phones, the trend of heart breaks is going through a change where people do face the trust issues but it is becoming easier for them to say goodbye as the emotional connect is shared only on chats and video calls. Let us visit a world where the people after breakups hibernate, the silence where they find solace and if they were ever salvaged from their hideout places.
The mood can be divided into 5 phases.
The squeaking mouse:
A mouse is in and around its home, a hole. Your room is your hole where you got connected with this stranger. The talks, chats, selfies; all were shared from here. Now, when everything has come to a standstill, bring a light of change. Strike out the black and white days with a bit of sunshine by introducing small changes which you’ll cherish. You can start with a room makeover by introducing a few posters which you like. A few positive quotes posters can bring in the assertiveness back. Wallpapers are another interesting element that you can add to your room to make it look cheerful. Change the room setting to bring in a new vibe, the start can be from changing the bedsheet and curtains.
Punching the pillow after getting frustrated? Why not convert the frustration to your benefit and hit the gym. The aggressiveness is not always negative when channeled in the right direction and when it comes to being fit, it’s the best way to start with. Change into your athleisure outfit and get on the treadmill. Keep yourself equipped with all the essentials compactly packed in an appetite tote bag (L FOUNDER GOBLIN MAROON) and come out refreshed with a new breath.
The last resort:
Bored with your own company? This is the time you want to talk to your bae and give her the latest updates on your relationship status. Don’t fall back on a gossip session for spilling out the left over irritation during the conversation. That’s what friends are for, be there when the world turns upside down. Trick her into an ice-cream treat and head out for a long walk. Get rid of your pajamas and don high-waist denim with a woolen poncho top to keep you warm. Tag along a sling (LMP VENETA BINDAS CARAMEL (TAN) L) to carry your monetary essentials and your winter care kit. Why have the breakup ice-cream tubs alone when they can be rubbed into the face of your bae while the window plays the ice effect with the blowing cool breeze past it!
The new me:
Coco Chanel has rightly said, “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life”. Make yourself fall in love with yourself again because, everyone is temporary except your own shadow. That got too deep, anyway. Take yourself on a pampering enthrall where haircut can top your checklist. With a good session of manicure, pedicure and facial, you can delve into the soothing feel of the spa. Having each muscle massaged, you can set out to rock your wardrobe. Getting rid of some old stuff is a good cleaning activity. Make space for the newly shopped styles and show off the whole ensemble to your friends to make them envy you. Gain back the control on yourself by opting for a power suit along with an oversized clutch (L SERENDIPITY Y G ELIANNA SILVER (SILVER) S) and a pair of pumps.
Set me free:
Set yourself free by giving yourself a break from the daily life’s routine and plunge into some lifetime memorable adventurous endeavors. A trip is what you should look forward to where you can dump all your worries and return with a clear mind to start afresh. Let the eyes of the onlookers dig in as you walk down the aisle (staircase). Carry outfits which are comfortable and yet can raise the bar of your style quotient. Don’t forget to pack a maxi jacket along with a bomber jacket. Pair it along a backpack ( LP MINIMO Y G HERCULE BLACK (BLACK) XL) to keep your hands free and travel free-spirited wherever you step.
We know it’s easy said than done but, it is a phase and this too shall pass. Whenever you feel low remember, a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear because it is never out of fashion. Share your stories with us by sharing them in the comments. We would love to hear to all of them.
