GIULIA ROSA:愛自己 | LOVE YOURSELF

人非聖賢,孰能無過。我們也許並不完美,充滿瑕疵、缺陷。但我們並不應該因此而逃避。義大利漫畫家 Giulia Rosa透過一系列震撼人心的漫畫插圖來鼓勵我們勇敢地面對和接受自己的真面目。

Being humans, we are known to make mistakes, and we are by nature imperfect beings. Italian comic artist Giulia Rosa encourages us to face our insecurities and accept who we truly are through her inspiring and impactful illustrations.

這裏的每件作品都是一個個教導我們學識自愛的人生課程。她的作品在視覺上也許充滿極簡主義,但它們所帶出的信息卻充滿深度和發人深省。在生活中,感到無助和焦慮是正常的。縱使我們並不完美,有缺陷也會犯錯,但亦因為這樣我們才能從錯誤中不斷嘗試並成長。Rosa透過她的作品與觀眾分享她的情緒,例如焦慮和恐懼。通過分享的過程來正視自己的種種缺陷,從而減輕自己情緒負擔,而不是否認並將其壓抑在內。

These artworks all contain a motivational message, a life lesson that promotes self-love. Her works may be visually minimalistic, but the depth and weight that it carries are great with insightful visions. It is normal to feel helpless and anxious, yet having flaws and making mistakes enable us to grow from errors and trials. Rosa uses her work to share her emotions with the audience such as having anxiety and fear. Through the act of sharing and admitting our insecurities, it actually alleviates the negative emotions as compared to bottling it all up from denial.

Rosa透過她的作品來告訴我們自愛和自我欣賞的重要性。我們雖然每天都面臨著各種批評,但別人的話並不等同於我們的自我價值;別人的意見也不應該讓我們陷入自我厭惡的無涯深淵。也許但我們身處於一個充滿競爭的社會時,學習如何欣賞自己是一個艱難的課程。然而,世上亦只有一個「你」、只有一個「自己」。因此,世上亦沒有任何一個人比你更加了解你自己,了解你人生的高潮迭起,了解你的長處和短處。

Rosa shares with us the importance of self-love and self-appreciation through the thought-provoking and wholesome advice from her art. We face criticisms and judgments every day, but other’s words should not be equivalent to self-worth. Other’s opinions should not cause you to fall into the endless pit of self-loathing. Learning how to appreciate ourselves is a difficult lesson that we struggle with as we live in a highly competitive society. However, there is only one “you” and no one knows you better than yourself, your highs and lows, your strengths and weaknesses.
