A yoga instructor, Jessamyn Stanley is the love of social media as she gathers 350,000 Instagram followers after she posted her lingerie photos.
Jessamyn who is confident about her looks, says that she loves to strike different poses in order to inspire others.
According to Jessamyn, self love and acceptance is necessary for survival and people must learn to live above hate.
She showed off her flexibility and wrote:
“It is hard to be confident in yourself. Social media makes it look easy and sometimes even glamorous, but it’s not. My struggle towards self-confidence and self-love is constantly evolving. In my experience, self-hate doesn’t miraculously go away. It takes work. Showing up for that work is what’s most important. So every day, I come back to the drawing board.
I wipe away yesterday’s actions and try to release both the good and the bad emotions. I try to be compassionate towards myself. I try to show myself love instead of hate. It is hard. I was not trained to love myself. I’m not good at it.
And I don’t live in a world that wants me to love myself. But this work isn’t about a hashtag or a movement- it’s about survival. I must love myself in order to survive. That’s the goal. Everything else is just extra.
