Joann’s journey to body positivity
Joann has been inspiring and motivating people for self-love and body positivity. But she did not always have sunshine in her own journey. When she was younger she had issues with self-acceptance and was insecure about her body. Talking about confidence, she wrote on Instagram,
“I always was so happy when it became winter so I could hide my body. I hated the summer, I’d have to wear shorts otherwise I’d sweat to death???? And I thought my legs were so fat! Also, I was so afraid what people’d think of me. I was always like ‘omg they’re probably look at my fat legs’ or ‘omg they’re probably laughing at me because my hips are big’”
But now she feels that she was being stupid and one should wear whatever he/she likes or feels good in. Joann encourages people not to care about other people’s opinions. Whenever she feels insecure about parts of her body she asks herself if that really matters or not. She focuses on the parts which she feels are beautiful. Herik claimed that the people one socializes with will have an impact on one’s body confidence.
Joann suggests other people to surround themselves with positive people. Previously, she was with people who were negative about themselves which made her negative about herself.
