After the term beach-ready sparked debate over body image earlier this year, many social media users have been trying to spread the love this summer by sharing positive posts.
This reddit user’s pic, which was originally posted two years ago, has resurfaced after capturing all our feels about being positive about our bods!
Looking lovely and posing on the beach, the caption reads:
“I know selfies aren’t ok, but I am so proud that I finally felt confident enough to wear a bikini instead of hiding a scar.”
Speaking further about her scar, the brave lady said:
“The scar is a result of 4 open-heart surgeries. I also have another big one that goes sideways across my ribs and reaches around my back. There are also smaller scars… you can see one in the photo.”
What an inspiration – we say get out there and show yourself off.
Whatever your body looks like, it’s the only one you’ve got, so be proud of it!
