Mumbai: Actress Ileana D’Cruz has made a candid statement on social media, in which she poses in a bikini with a monochrome picture posted on Instagram.
She wrote on her Instagram image: “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…..
I’ve worried that I’m not tall enough, not pretty enough, not funny enough, not smart enough, not “perfect” enough. Not realizing 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. 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.”
“I didn’t realize that I was never perfect. I meant to be beautifully flawed. Different. Quirky. Unique. Every mark, every bump, every ‘dosha’ made me, me. Just like me. My Own Kind of beautiful. ”
Ileana said that she stopped trying to fit inside.
“That’s why I’ve stopped. Stop Trying to look beautiful in line with the world’s ideals. I’ve stopped trying to fit into it. Why should I? When I was born to be born, ” She said. .
This is not the first time Ileana has spoken about self love. Recently, she urged everyone to make themselves their priority number one.
