International Youth Day gives us another opportunity to remind the next generation about how important it is to just be themselves – and even more importantly, to be proud of who they are.
There has never been more pressure on young people than there is today, with social media and the digital world playing a huge, and sometimes harmful, part, in so many lives. Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, are trying to be someone they’re not and impressing people who they don’t even know or like.
Here at FORmE we say forget all that. The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday, and as long as you remain true to yourself then that’s all you can really do.
Take our monster, Louie, for example, he knows who he is and he owns it. That’s why people love him, and if they don’t, that’s not his problem. You can’t please everyone!
This whole message is the main reason our logo on the front of all our garments is written backwards – what you see in the mirror matters most.
We believe that together, we can change the way people think and have the whole of the UK (and the world!) believing in their own sauce and being proud of who they really are. After all, wouldn’t you prefer to be disliked for being who you are, than liked for being some you’re not?
One to think about this International Youth Day, right?
