Fitness writer, vlogger, and model Louise Aubery has shared a post about how the world sees her how she sees herself.
On Wednesday, Aubery shared a glamorous photo of herself running on a beech on Instagram.
In the side by side of the same photo, she labels it from alternative perspectives: 'What you see' and 'What I see'.
The image has been liked over 10,000 times since it was posted.
In her images, 'A big smile' becomes 'A big nose', 'Long legs' become 'Back Fat' and a 'Strong Butt' becomes 'Cellulite'.
In the caption, Aubery writes:
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.
But the message wasn't entirely without hope.
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. 💛
Aubery lives in Paris and also has a YouTube channel 'MyBetterSelf' (in French).
