Hun har en vigtig besked: Jo, billederne blev taget på samme dag og samme tidspunkt Hun har en vigtig besked: Jo, billederne blev taget på samme dag og samme tidspunkt

Den 23-årige sygeplejerskestuderende Milly Smith ønsker at åbne dine øjne for et simpelt budskab: Du er god nok, som du er.

Budskabet spreder den britiske kvinde gennem sin Instagram-profil, hvor hun jævnligt deler 'transformations-billeder', som er taget blot sekunder fra hinanden. Hendes opslag skal understrege, hvor meget billeder kan bedrage.

På et billede, som hun offentliggjorde for nyligt, viser hun, hvor stor en effekt et simple par strømpebukser kan have. På det ene billede har hun støtte-strømpebukser på, som får det til at se ud som om, at hun har en flad mave. På det andet har hun trukket strømpebukserne ned under sin mave - en simpel ændring, der fuldstændig transformerer hendes figur.

Same girl, same day, same time. Not a before and after. Not a weight loss transformation. Not a diet company promotion. I am comfortable with my body in both. Neither is more or less worthy. Neither makes me more or less of a human being. Neither invites degrading comments and neither invites sleezy words. We are so blinded to what a real unposed body looks like and blinded to what beauty is that people would find me less attractive within a 5 second pose switch! How insanely ridiculous is that!? I love taking these, it helps my mind so much with body dysmorphia and helps me rationalise my negative thoughts. Don't compare, just live for you. There is no one on this planet who's like you and that's pretty damn amazing don't ya think. The world doesn't need another copy, it needs you. We are worthy, valid and powerful beyond measure (If you don't pull your tights up as high as possible are you really human?)

I billedteksten skriver Milly Smith:

'Samme pige, samme dag, samme tidspunkt. Ikke et før- og efterbillede. Ikke et vægttab. Ikke en reklame for et slanke-firma.'

Hun understreger, at hun er tilpas med, hvordan hendes krop ser ud på begge billeder, og hun opfordrer sine følgere til ikke at sammenligne sig selv med andre.

'Vi er så blinde over for, hvordan en krop ser ud, når man ikke poserer, og så blinde over for, hvad skønhed er, at mange ville finde mig mere attraktiv efter en skift i posering, som tager fem sekunder. Hvor ekstremt latterligt er det ikke lige?,' skriver hun.

Billeder, som sættes op side om side, bruges ofte på Instagram og andre sociale medier, men 23-årige Milly Smiths profil viser, hvor vildledende vinkler og tøj kan være for en kropssilhuet og understreger dermed, at mange billeder ikke nødvendigvis er en sand afspejling af virkeligheden.

Milly Smith offentliggør ofte billeder, hvor hun advokerer for at acceptere sin krop og sig selv, som man er.

It's been a while since I've done a posed vs relaxed but I know how many of you guys love them . Both of these poses are beautiful. The media would try to tell me only one of them is but NAAHHHH because that comes from an ignorant, one-sided, profit making, beauty ideal that I AINT HERE FOR. . Our bodies move, grow and change shape all day everyday. It's been hounded on us for so long that only a still image in which we are posed and tensed is beautiful but it's simply not true... jiggle, rolls, fat, cellulite, extra skin (fanx pregnancy I love ya) are glorious, beautiful and REAL. . I could 'pose' all my photos, make myself fit a little better into the mould that society wants me to but then i would miss out on being my glorious self, further strengthen the hold the media's 'beauty ideal' has on us and put out a message I don't want to send... . Love yourself for who you are in this moment . These are not control underwear, just high waisted briefs and my underwear set is from @bouxavenue

Would you believe me if I told you there was 6 months between these pictures? How about 6 minutes and a bit of posing / smoothing of the skin on an app? HINT: it's the second one. I could tell you I've restricted, spent every second in the gym and this is my transformation. Would you believe it? I could tell you I've been using a cellulite toning detox cream for a week and this is the result, would you believe me? I could tell you I've cut out sugar for 3 weeks and ran 12 miles a day and this is my transformation, would you believe it? I could tell you that I've eaten a certain protein bar for breakfast everyday along side shakes for lunch and this is the result. Would you believe it? I could tell you that I was depressed on the left and happier now on the right, would you believe it? I could tell you that I weigh less on the right, would you believe it? The reality of things we see are often so far from the truth. 6 minutes difference, same day, same girl just posed a smoothing skin filter used. Dont trust everything you see on the internet or in the media. Don't compare yourself, don't strive to be a fake image or anything other than your true authentic self for that matter. You rule as you are, do you, please you and live for you. Unfollow negative pages and surround yourself with love. You've got this, I've got this, we've all got this. We are strong, valid, worthy and powerful beyond measure.
