The Story

Sometimes society can make rather unreasonable demands of us: be successful, be happy, be meaningful! Trying to realise these demands can be stressful and counter-productive. Some of the things society demands of us can be downright ludicrous; be skinny, be young, have a tastefully curated wardrobe!

It may seem counter-intuitive but accepting that things don't always turn out as we would ideally like, and that life can be pretty chaotic, can make us more happy. This way you can spend less time finding the right diet and more time on the important things, like finding the right floral print!

Loudly declare your stoicism with this print of hops and box trees, which represent injustice and stoicism in the language of flowers!
