We all do it: we see beautiful, seemingly perfect people on social media and we get it in our heads that in order to be happy in life, we need to be skinny and pretty with no flaws in our appearance whatsoever.
Even though we do that, we also know deep down that for 99% of us that is not reality and it is totally unattainable.
That’s why photos like this are so powerful and important. Take a look.
1. This is what she really looks like.
2. Nobody is perfect.
My friend is absolutely stunning and does professional modelling, but she does post unflattering photos to prove that you don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful and to show that every body has flaws, even if you can’t usually tell! from Instagramreality
3. No editing involved.
What I love about the Royals on Instagram is the fact that they don’t edit their pictures. It’s a breath of fresh air to see face wrinkles and skin texture, this is what real faces look like. from Instagramreality
4. That’s refreshing.
5. A real look.
6. This is normal.
7. Unposed vs. Posed.
8. She’s stunning!
9. Honest as hell.
10. Good and bad days.
11. About 99% of people have them.
12. No pretending.
13. We’re all insecure…
14. Do not edit.
15. One more for good measure.
If you’re having a bad day and you think you’re not good-looking or fit enough, keep in mind that it’s all an illusion and even the models on social media have flaws in their appearance.
So love yourself and love your body! And remember to treat yourself well. We’re all unique and we’re all perfect in our own ways.
