Supermodel Ireland Baldwin is the latest of many celebs to take to Instagram and promote a message of self-love, self-confidence, and body positivity.
The 21-year-old model, who has struggled with issues of emotional distress in the past, posted this picture on Monday with a long but powerful message about feeling comfortable in her own skin, and reminding others of why they should feel the same.
"This is who I am, take it or leave," Baldwin wrote in her caption. "I am not going to be body shamed for being pale or not stick thin. I'm not going to spend hours photoshopping my authenticity away. I'm not going to beat myself up for not looking like someone else. I'm not going to be told that I'm damaged goods because of my tattoos."
She continued, "Most days I'm self conscious, but today I love every curve and edge. Your body should be treated with the dignity and respect it deserves. I want to be as real as possible with everyone that follows me because to be quite honest, what the is even the point of social media if you can't be who you truly are?"
Baldwin ended the post encouraging her fans to be proud of who they are and what they can accomplish. She is a huge supporter of a beauty industry that embraces bodies of all shapes and sizes. Amen, girl!
