Converse love Fearlessly


In a world where finding validation and love externally is the standard,
Converse will celebrate the power of loving yourself first.
There is this unspoken reality that liking your own Insta post is weak.
Basically saying: Liking yourself is wrong.
What if we said: Your like is the only one you need.
Converse's Love Fearlessly campaign challenges the new norm.
It encourages us to focus on loving ourselves first, before we can share that love with the rest of the world.
To celebrate this, Converse chatted to our very own Platypus team members to find out what Loving Fearlessly means to them.


KALEB FROM WA:

What is the impact social media has had on you?

Such a big impact I first started using social media properly in 2015 when I left school and wow what a change it has made to my life. Sometimes having your life displayed via social media is hard due to the fact you dont really have any personal moments. But it’s worth it all in the end when you get to see the positive reaction you create in someone’s life, because they relate to your struggles and situations.

What does it mean to you to be fearless?

Fearless to me is not thinking of someone else’s opinion before doing something that you want to do!


AYESHA FROM WA:

What does it mean to you to be fearless?

I have a tattoo of a quote in German that state’s “no rain no flowers”. You have to go through the bad to get the good and if you can accept that then that’s fearless to me.

Why is it important to love who you are and what you do?

Love flourishes when we give it to other people but love always starts with ‘me’. You don’t need to be perfect but recognising your good qualities and your bad qualities leads you to a road of accepting. Once you have accepted yourself you will feel no need to compare yourself to something or someone. Your path is your path only and the road to your success is one only you can complete in your own.


MAKAYLA FROM QLD:

What does it mean for you to love yourself first?

To love myself means to be happy in my own skin and to look after my body, it means that I’m happy being me. Like the wise words of RuPaul “if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you going to love somebody else” and to that I give an amen!


WANIDA FROM QLD:

What does it mean for you to love yourself first?

Loving myself first means keeping aligned with my core beliefs and values, listening to what my mind/body need and staying on track with my goals.

What is the impact social media has had on you?

Social media lets me express my creativity, network and promote myself as professional dancer. It’s been a great way to get noticed and book work. Negatives can be getting swept up in worrying about what hits with my audience instead of focusing on what I enjoy but I’ve been able to manage that.


DANIEL FROM VIC:

What does it mean for you to love yourself first?

To love myself first I acknowledge that everything I encounter upon my journey in life is necessary for my personal development in which leads to my growth in wisdom. My expanding wisdom and knowledge gives me the power to love my journey. Through loving my journey I can practice loving myself, especially on tougher days.

What is the impact social media has had on you?

Social media has played a part in growing my ambition to seek knowledge and to empower my culture’s beauty on a media platform. Social media has also contributed to my drive to create inspiring content and to share my journey through a creative perspective. Social media has hurt me at times due to the miseducation and ignorance that it can be home to. I’ve also seen social media harm others around me due to how people can manipulate certain truths, shaping how myself and those around me receive and interpret truths that have been shared through social media platforms.


JARROD FROM VIC:

Why is it important to love who you are what you do?

Because there is only one you, and you cannot let other people influence who you are as a person. You are you for a reason.

What does it mean to you to be fearless?

To live your life and go day-to-day without having fear of others judgement.


CHELSEA FROM VIC:

What does it mean to you to love yourself first?

To me this means taking the time to do what I love, that makes me genuinely happy and healthy. It means being my own best friend and strength through any situation life brings.

What does it mean to you to be fearless?

Being fearless is a trait that is so important to have. When you’ve conquered the power of being fearless, you’re not afraid to do anything. And when you’re not afraid to do anything, you can achieve any goal - big or small. Being fearless means going for what you want no matter the cost. It’s not being afraid to fall because you know you’ll always get back up.


TYRELL FROM NSW:

What does it mean to you to love yourself first?

Loving yourself isn’t always about taking selfies or looking at yourself in the mirror. To love yourself is trusting yourself. Trusting your ideas, trusting that you can do it and trusting every move you make. The more you trust yourself, the more confident you become. Impress yourself, not others.

Why is it important to love who you are and what you do?

It’s important to love who are and what you do because it’s important to be comfortable with yourself before you become comfortable with other people. You love people more when you love yourself. You can’t pour water from an empty jug.
