Josephine LIvin x Sistie
My name is Josephine, and I make a living from my social media. When I started my Instagram four years ago - and shortly after my TikTok - I could never have dreamed of what it would evolve into. However, my goal was clear from the beginning: To challenge the culture of perfection that was almost suffocating me.
I've spent so much time and energy believing that I constantly had to be perfect - and appear perfect. A perfectionism that extended far beyond a flawless digital life. Suddenly, I also felt the pressure to excel in my real life - with perfect grades, a perfect body, perfectly styled hair and makeup. Nothing less than perfect would suffice."
I am good enough
However, the pursuit of perfection led me far from a perfect life. It turned me into a shadow of myself. Suddenly, eating disorders, stress, social anxiety, panic attacks, and severe depression became my everyday reality. I had to hit rock bottom before I could realize how my perfectionism stemmed from a hunger for approval. Only with others' acceptance could I feel good enough. With that realization, my journey of self-love truly began: Who was I really behind the glossy image? Getting to know myself has been the best thing I've ever done for myself. I now know that I am much more than I had thought. Because I am good enough, just as I am, and I always have been.
My silly, clumsy, and unpolished sides are just as much a part of me - and they contribute to painting a picture of what I truly am: a human being.
We are all Unique
he more I started to see these other sides of myself, the easier it became to embrace them as strengths rather than flaws. I also realized that they couldn't be packed away in boxes - they should be showcased just like the "good" sides were. This very concept has been the inspiration behind my jewelry collection. Because we are all so unique, and we hold so much more than what we display as polished facets on our social media. Thus, my jewelry represents everything that is me. It's not just the smooth, polished, and perfect sides that are expressed, but also the quirky and unpolished ones. For the same reason, my jewelry features both smooth and raw surfaces - symbolizing my entirety, not just the surface.
Today, my hope is that you are simply yourself. And that you will proudly wear the jewelry, embracing all the facets that define you. Because you are truly amazing just as you are.
You were created with a purpose. A purpose that extends far beyond your appearance, your grades, or how much you perform in your digital life. You are good enough, and you deserve to remind yourself of this every day from now on.
The jewelry will be launched on August 24th and can be purchased here on Sistieshop or from our authorized Sistie retailers.
