It seems like everywhere we look, people are trying to put on their best face. Social media has created a world where it’s all too easy to present an airbrushed, unrealistic version of our lives to the world. We only show the highlights, the good times, the things that make us look like we’re living our best lives. But what about the struggles, the pain, the times when we’re not feeling well? Those are the parts of our lives that make us human. Gold by Belgian music duo The Starlings examines the idea of being yourself rather than creating an imagined reality.
We love this song because it’s a reminder to stay authentic and never lose sight of our values. The world should be a place where we are free to express ourselves, without having to put on a facade. Let’s change things for the better together!
