oldie but goldie I love my body thanks to ur beautiful movement, i went through yrs of not loving myself because of the way my body was, I tried a hundred diets, none worked, then I finally realized they won't work because I needed to learn to love myself how I was. I was fine. I was psyching myself into believing I was in terrible shape, as if my body wasn't beautiful enough for anyone to love. But I found someone to love it, that someone is myself❤️ thank u for this movement.
We've seen a hella lot of naked selfies on the 'Gram lately, but they aren't what you might expect. These nudes were posted by women for other women, and the best part is it's making girls love what their mommas gave 'em.
Through her Instagram account, The Naked Diaries, L.A.-based Taylor Giavasis, 18, has created a body-positive social movement and lots of teens are totally on board.
The pics are completely unedited - save for some carefully placed emojis - showing scars, stretch marks and hair, the photos are intended to make other women feel good about themselves, and are often accompanied with raw, emotion-laced messages about the struggle to love their bodies.
Taylor started the movement by photographing a friend who was struggling with her own body image. The friend was thrilled with the results, so Taylor posted the photos to her account. After doing the same thing for other girls, Taylor started receiving messages, and the page became the body-positive community it is today.
Currently, Taylor has more than 42,000 followers on Instagram, and told MTV News that she would like to make a book. Props to her and her body empowerment movement!
For the past couple years I've struggled with major depression, I've under eaten, over eaten, cut myself, bruised myself, and really hated myself and my body. My struggle isn't over but I'm doing my best to stay healthy and love myself and your page is definitely helping. Thank you for showing people that they're beautiful, this is a wonderful project💕
Hi, I just wanted to show my struggle with bodily hair. My back hairline goes all the way down to my butt crack. It's such a hard struggle for me to wear my hair in a bun to school or be in a swim suit with all of this hair. Slowly trying to have self love is really hard for me when everyday I wish I could be different. Learn to love yourself people, we are just little bits of stardust in this huge Galaxy, don't let people get you down on things you can't change.
