Here's just one more reason we love Sasha Pieterse.

The Pretty Little Liars star has been dealing with social media trolls making comments about her body and her weight, and instead of losing it on them in a rant, she took the high road instead. In an Instagram post, Sasha was incredibly sweet in response to the hating, when she didn't have to say anything at all.

To my incredible and loving fans, Words cannot express how amazed I am by you! I'm so thankful for the affection you have for me, Alison, and Pretty Little Liars! We/I wouldn't be able to make it happen without you! I get to do what I love every single day because of you guys! As a lot of you have noticed my body has gone through some changes, and I want to clear the air and give you an explanation. I have been facing a bad hormone imbalance that has thrown my body completely out of whack. I want to assure you that I'm healthy and getting everything back on track! A big thanks to all of you who have been in my corner! We live in such a judge mental society that puts every kind of flaw, including weight gain, in the same category. And for those of you who are struggling with any health problem, hormone imbalance, and weight gain of any sort I urge and encourage you to please deal with it in a healthy manor. YOU and YOUR health are what matters, not anyone else's opinions and assumptions of you. Getting healthy isn't just about working out and eating right (however extremely important) it's also about surrounding yourself with those who care about you and want to see you succeed and become the best you can be. I love every single one of you and I hold you all dear to my heart! Xoxoxox Sasha

This is so empowering. We're sure Sasha isn't the only one dealing with body issues, and whether someone's body is changing due to a health problem or not, no one should be made to feel bad about themselves because of the way they look. Unfortunately, there are people who feel the need to hop on social media, hide behind fake accounts and bash others. While there's still no solution for how to shut that down (just yet) it's nice to see someone like Sasha, who so many young women admire, take a stand and share her story.

You never know who needed to hear it.
