Sailor Brinkley has apparently been photoshopping her bikini pics since she joined Instagram, I know a lot of girls who can’t post a photo of themselves without editing it to shit first, making sure they don’t show any pores, making sure their tits look even and plump, synching their waist in to the point where they make their elbows appear bigger than their body due to the over pulling and dragging of the waist.
My favorite hobby is scrolling through Instagram influencers pages and seeing all the work they’ve done in editing, it’s hilarious to me but to others it just forces them to think twice about how they look. I guess Sailor is one of those girls, but not anymore! The 21 year old has opened up about her body dysmorphia and eating disorder issues in her new Instagram post, where she also declared that she is SICK of Photoshop.
Here is what Sailor had to say:
I’m so fucking sick and tired of the photoshop I’ve been so down on myself recently. Crying about my cellulite, letting the fat on my body ruin my day, getting mad that i’m not as skinny as i once was. The body dysmorphia and left over eating disorder tendencies have been coming in strong. As i come into myself as a young woman my body shifts and changes by the month, the “control” i felt i once had over it has been completely stripped away from me. Hormones, emotions, growing pains. I go on instagram and scroll through photos of girls that look “perfect”.. shiny skin with not a bump to be seen, tiny little waist and thighs that look like chopsticks. And i compare myself, as if how someone on an app on my phone looks should directly correlate to how I feel about my body? What I’ve learned is that I run every day. I go to the gym 6 times a week. I fuel my body with beautiful food. I am so fucking LUCKY to have two legs and a healthy body that takes me through life. I’m so tired of thinking anything that makes up ME is something to be ashamed of. So as most 21st century girls would do, I’m putting this out there on instagram. Declaring that I have cellulite, and a stomach that doesn’t always look “pleasant” (whatever the fuck that means) and I am 100% imperfect human. And I’m proud as hell of my body! If you’re out there hating on yourself, stop!! Appreciate yourself. You’re body is so magical. That’s all. Have a nice day.
