The summer is upon us and most us will fall to the age-old trap of covering out beautiful bodies into a layers of clothes, holding breaths for that perfect beach selfie with friends, hiding those stretch marks, instead why don’t we take a leaf out of Ariel Winter’s book? And embrace our self for who we are!
At a recently interview with Refinery29, the geeky Modern Family start has opened up about, when she felt ‘uncomfortable’ with her body.
She actress admitted: ‘Because I’m honest about my insecurities, people think I’m 100 per cent positive about my body all the time, but I’m not.’
‘I get really uncomfortable, too. But I just remind myself that this is the body I was given. This is who I am,’ she said.
Ariel, went under surgery to reduce her former 32F chest in 2015, in result she became a victim of series of abuse. Despite all the negativity she has finally admitted to find peace with being dressed in swimwear, no match what everyone else think or say.
‘When I got the breast reduction it helped me feel so much better about my body.
‘I used to have full-scale meltdowns in bathing suit shops because there was nothing I could find to wear. I always felt like crap about myself,’ she admitted.
She revealed about the difficulties she face whenever she is out with her friends, ‘My best friend, she’s super tall and skinny and she’ll wear the same bathing suit as me, but people will automatically look at me and call me out as a sh*t or write headlines about ‘Ariel Winter’s cleavage”.
‘I decided that instead of pleasing these other people, I’ll just spend that time pleasing myself.
‘Those people are going to be rude to me regardless of what I do, so I should just try and be happy with what I am,’ she added.
Y'all I love you but PLEASE pay attention and post my REAL point from my @refinery29 interview!!! Not that I'm "defending living with my 29 year old boyfriend" or that I'm "firing back at Trump" because first of all I don't need to defend anything I'm super happy and in love, and I'm not firing at anyone just sharing an opinion after being ASKED! The point was to take back the beach and help people understand that the beach should be a safe space to go as you please and feel good about yourself no matter what! Makeup on, makeup off, heels, sandals, covered up, exposed, do you and feel HAPPY about who you are and YOUR choices, not the ones society wants us to choose. It's also HARD to be 100% confident- I'm still not- but I'm on a journey and I want other people to know they're not alone. We all struggle but through our struggle we get stronger and closer to our goals. Body positivity is important- not that I live with my boyfriend. Press- please read the article and take it for what it is- not what will give you more readers! Let's all be real and represent people how they want to be represented through what they actually say. Rant over. Love yourselves, love others, be yourselves, and be happy. Xo
Ariel has one thing to say:
‘People are so stressed out about how they’re going to look in their bathing suits that they forget to go to the beach because they want to go to the beach, which defeats the whole purpose.
‘The beach should be a safe space,’ she added.
We hear you Ariel, We hear you
