I love this photo. I know I'm not supposed to - just look at all those 'flaws'. There was a time when I couldn't stand the thought of existing in a body like this. When I would have rather starved myself to death than see so much softness when I looked in the mirror. These days, I wouldn't change a thing. Not a single crease or line, not a single dimple or scar. Every part is how it's supposed to be, and I'm done fighting my body for someone else's idea of perfection. I'm not buying those lies anymore. And I've learned something really important along the way, something that I want you all to know. You are the only person who gets to decide how you feel about yourself. You get to decide what perfection is. Not the media, not society, not the person who first made you feel worthless because of your reflection. YOU. You are more powerful than any of them want you to know. And you are capable of far greater things than forcing your body into what they think it should be. What if in this moment, you are exactly where you should be? The power to decide that is all yours. Take your power back.
She says ‘You are capable of far greater things than forcing your body into what they think it should be’. The post, so far, has had a whopping 21,000 likes and has clearly struck a chord with Instagrammers across the globe.
Wise words Megan!
