“Can you click this picture again because I don’t like my left profile?” At least once we must have said this while clicking a photo. In this race to get the “perfect Insta picture”, we don’t notice how much we deny a part of ourselves.
On this, actress Vidya Balan bravely admitted that she too has experienced this feeling and gave a powerful message for any self-aware woman or man to talk about their insecurities and love themselves. ).
Vidya says that you develop yourself as a person who is always under the media eye and the camera decides how she looks and what she wears, but one day she has to face herself. invalid Instead of trying to fit into a certain groove, she embraces herself and loves all parts of herself equally.
Vidya Balan recently shared a small but important event on her social media account. This incident helped her to love herself and accept her body as it is.
He said in this post that at some event a girl approached Vidya to take a picture and Vidya politely got up to take a picture with her. A few minutes later the girl came back for another photo and told him, “I took the photo from my wrong profile and I don’t look good in it, the girl says I can’t post this photo.”
The girl tries to get a really perfect shot with Vidya and even follows the actress’ car and joins the crowd. Vidya decides to apologize to him for not getting a perfect picture of her, but the incident reminds her of her days when Vidya herself was struggling with issues related to her body and ‘profile’.
Balan talks about body image issues
Unrealistic beauty standards and social media pressures have left us with no choice but to join the race to “look perfect.”
In one way or another, we are all trapped by the pressure to live by society’s standards of beauty. To stay in this race, we hide our lowest parts.
Narrating her example, Vidya says, “You know I’ve always loved my left side more than my right side. But over time, in this journey of accepting myself a little more every day, I’ve come to see each side a little more. loved, i realized that liking one profile of me means i like another part of me. and rad. the thing is i only like my left profile and i accept that my right profile likes me don’t like it.”
Don’t we all think the same about this? When we realize that the world has only seen parts of us, doesn’t it cause panic?
Vidya works to accept every part of herself with all her flaws. She also shared an unfiltered picture of herself with no make-up, showing both of her profiles. It was an attempt to convey that he stopped taking pictures or caring about some angles of his filming. She felt more beautiful and confident.
Vidya Balan says, “I love myself the way I am.”
Vidya’s self-love reminds us that if we change our attitude towards certain things in life, our attitude towards ourselves will automatically become positive. Just as the right profile is still the left in this case, it’s the way she looks at herself that changed the game for her to love herself more.
Loving ourselves and accepting us as we are makes us comfortable in our own skin and also teaches us to be confident. If we accept ourselves as we are, only then can we expect the world to accept us.
In an interview, Vidya also said, “You can reject your body but continue to do so throughout your life, but actually, what your body looks like is not the body’s fault. It is one. you need and I told myself that this is my body and I love it above all else.
We are all created to be who we are and not to filter out what is selective, incomplete or fake. If we live like this, then in reality we are guilty of ourselves and we do not love ourselves at all.
