Previous: A life without worries
Looking back, we lived almost without worries. Ok, my only really great concern was probably coping with all my daily household tasks like washing dishes, ironing, cleaning, vacuuming, and so on.
Maybe it was how I could keep my fingers off McDonald's delicious strawberry milkshake. Oh, how I loved strawberries at that time or a double chocolate-dipped soft ice cream from "Dairy Queen" or - oh God, give me strength! Ok, so apart from these few exceptions, I was relatively unconcerned.
What are Cellulits?
For example, I never thought about the consequences of my chocolate and ice cream. I thought neither of calories nor of cellulitis. Hell, I did not even know how to spell these words!
Did I even have the slightest idea that strawberries and soft ice cream with a chocolate mantle can make my butt up to the size of a double-headed tourist bus? No, and it did not matter to me at all.
Only one thought was important
On my almost five-kilometer walk to the next branch of "Dairy Queen", I usually wore my summer dress in all the colors of the rainbow and had braided my hair into two braids.
Every few meters I checked, while the water in my mouth was already running, whether my 25 cents were still in the little sewn-on bag of my dress. I let the coins glide through my fingers or held them tight, so that they could not disappear through any small holes in their pockets.
But I had only one important thought in mind: Hopefully there was once again set up a brand new ice cream seller, where you could be pretty sure that he could not estimate the quantities due to lack of experience and I would therefore get more ice cream than common.
Today: What happened?
Excuse me, but whenever I think about chocolate, my thoughts wander a bit. Let us return to my admiration for the community of women back then. Here is my question to you, which is a question I always ask myself, which I call the "famous woman question":
Women out there in the world, what happened to us? When did we lose that spirit that kept us together? When did we begin to compare and evaluate our cellulite?
When did we stop enjoying an ice cream? And when - for good measure - did we start feeling guilty about eating chocolate while eating?
My inner revolution
Over time, this question became my mantra, transformed into an inner revolution, my inner revolution. I work with women, I try to pay attention to these women, but of course I always fall asleep with this whole female competition.
So I decided to go out, search, ask, feel, and finally understand: What do we do today but thirty or forty years ago?
Zickenkrieg or cohesion?
Okay, I think I'm crazy, but something seems to whisper to my subconscious, "It's not right, the way it's going right now!" That's why I'm standing here now, starting my journey to ask as many women as possible what we're changing should.
Whether there is any way to change this process? Is it really a Zickenkrieg, or is it just a fashion phenomenon, which we should buy the media? Do we all need to have the same shoes, take the same lipstick and wear size 34?
What needs to change?
Or is this behavior far deeper in women than we suspect, and must we illuminate this phenomenon from different angles? I would prefer to sit down with each one of you and talk about a woman's cohesion and competition with a delicious cup of tea or coffee.
What do we need to stop being women, even our greatest enemy? To truly become sisters again? I hope you get together with friends, colleagues, mothers, daughters, grandmothers, acquaintances, neighbors, or quite unknown women to talk about these issues. If my book could lead to it, it would have reached its goal.
