In the past few years, social media has dramatically changed our perception towards our bodies.
Promoting a more receptive attitude towards our own body, Sara Puhto, a 20-year-old body-positive blogger has shared some pictures that reveal how often times, beauty bloggers deceive viewers by taking pictures from different angles.
Here’s what she wrote:
Instagram vs reality 👙🌿 I Haven’t worked out consistently for almost 2 months. I had exams and have been on holiday for a month now and just haven’t gotten back into my routine of working out and that’s okay!! I’ve been eating ‘unhealthy’ food everyday because I don’t have access to this kind of food at home, but I have no regrets. Don’t stress yourself out by forcing yourself to eat clean and workout everyday if it doesn’t make you happy. Don’t stress about not having abs or not having your body looking “perfect”, because it’ll just cause you unnecessary stress and unhappiness. Eat what makes you happy and do what makes you feel like you’re living your life to the fullest!! Because life is shorter than we realise. We all have body fat and it’s completely normal! Don’t hate your body and let that ruin your time whether you’re on holiday or not. Don’t stress about how you look in a bikini or any other clothes. We are our own worst critic, and people don’t care about the way you look nearly as much as you think they do. Looks aren’t everything!! You are lovely and amazing the way you are and you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself!!! 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #bodypositive #nobodyshame #loveyourbody #selfesteem #selfacceptance #stopcomparing #thankyourbody #youareworthit #youareunique
“Nobody has abs or a flat tummy 24/7 when they sit down”, she wrote.
Because no one wakes up like this.
The truth behind those perfect curves.
“Nobody’s booty looks round and peachy from all angles”, Sara wrote.
Are you still gonna whine about your bikini body?
It’s all about posing, really.
“The beauty industry strives off our insecurities, and only shows so few body types, please don’t let this make you hate yourself,” she said.
There is no such thing as a perfect body. Your body IS perfect!
