Ileana D’Cruz has shared an eye-opening message about body positivity and self-love and mentioned her own struggles when it came to loving her body.

In today’s time, the world of social media and the beauty industry is getting toxic day by day. Due to its unrealistic beauty standards, even the most adored people are feeling insecure due to their supposed ‘flaws’. During such times, actress Ileana D’Cruz has shared an eye-opening message about body positivity and self-love and mentioned her own struggles when it came to loving her body.

She mentioned in her post, “I’ve always worried about how I looked. I’ve worried my hips are too wide, my thighs too wobbly, my waist not narrow enough, my tummy not flat enough, my boobs not big enough, my butt too big, my arms too jiggly, nose not straight enough, lips not full enough…..”

She continued as she shared, “I’ve worried that I’m not tall enough, not pretty enough, not funny enough, not smart enough, not “perfect” enough.”

Ileana also wrote that she has now smashed the ceiling of stereotypes as she has learned to embrace her flaws, “Not realising I was never meant to be perfect. I was meant to be beautifully flawed. Different. Quirky. Unique. Every scar, every bump, every “flaw” just made me, me. My own kind of beautiful. ”

She later addressed the toxicity that lies behind these ideals and wrote, “That’s why I’ve stopped. Stopped trying to conform to the world’s ideals of what’s meant to be beautiful. I’ve stopped trying so hard to fit in. Why should I?? When I was born to stand out.”

The ‘Barfi’ debutant also included a stunning picture of herself in a black beachwear with her highly empowering and honest post.
