Here we share with you guys an inspirational story from yet another fitness blogger. Seems like the fitness people are competing for the Nobel Prize on being the most inspirational these days. Louise Aubery is a fitness blogger who has more than 50k followers on Instagram. She is also a student at the University of California, Berkeley. She recently got a lot of attention for sharing a post about how we conceive our bodies. That post of hers got around eleven thousand likes.

We are truly living a theatrical life these days, where social media is the big curtain with all the drama and excitement. Our real lives are backstage where stuff is rushed, messy and real. To try and bring the real to the curtain is a brave feat these days and that is what Aubrey is trying to to. She has made a habit of discussing social constructs through her huge platform of Instagram.

The post that made her really pop out was one where she addressed the problems of underestimating ourselves. She shared a side by side photo of herself. One one side she points out what people might see when they look at her picture. And on the other side is what she thinks about when she looks at her own pictures.

⚡️ I am guilty. I am here to always be completely honest, because I feel social medias need more of it. | As much as I preach self love and truly made some progress accepting myself, there is something I really struggle with : pictures. . . Whenever I see a picture of me, the first things which catches my eyes are my FLAWS. I always see what is wrong. "Too close". "My nose appears too big." "My legs look too white". "I look terrible" This is usually what follows when someone show me a picture they took of me. . . YET, I really do not look at people's flaws first when I look at a picture of someone else ! On the contrary, I tend to focus on their assets. . . So why not do the same with yourself ? We really need to learn not to be so harsh on ourselves. It is not healthy. I am going to work on it, and I hope you will too. 💛 _____________________________________ ⚡️ Je plaide coupable. Vous savez que l'honnêteté est une valeur que je chérie; et je trouve que ca manque sur les réseaux sociaux. | Malgré que je prêche l'acceptance et l'amour de soi et que j'ai fait de réels progrès sur le sujet, il y a quelque chose avec lequel j'ai toujours beaucoup de mal : les photos. . . A chaque fois que je vois une photo de moi, tout ce que je vois en premier sont mes défauts. Je vois toujours ce qui ne va PAS. "Trop proche" "Mon nez paraît trop gros" "J'ai l'air trop blanche" "Supprime" : ce sont généralement mes premières réactions après avoir vu une photo de moi. . . Pourtant, ce n'est pas du tout comme ça que je réagis quand je vois une photo de quelqu'un d'autre ! Au contraire, j'ai plutôt tendance à voir leurs atouts . . Alors pourquoi ne l'applique-t-on pas à nous-même ? On doit vraiment apprendre à ne pas être aussi dur envers soi-même. Ce n'est pas sain. Je vais travailler dessus, et j'espère que vous aussi. 💛
