Body-Positive Instagrammer Speaks Out After Rude Message
Cailyn Finkel 3/22/2018
We all know the Internet can be a cruel, unforgiving place. Thankfully, there are people out there who are confident enough with themselves that they inspire others to feel good in their own skin. One of those people is a professional photographer, blogger, podcaster and wife named Jenna Kutcher.
Jenna is all about body positivity and doesn't hold her opinions back when it comes to society's unrealistic standards.
So when an online troll commented on her marriage with Drew, a physical trainer and Internet celebrity nicknamed "Mr. 6-Pack," she decided to say something about it. Now Jenna's strong message is going viral - and once you read what she said, you'll understand why so many people are rushing to her side...
It all started when a stranger messaged Jenna and asked how someone with such a hot physique could fall for a girl like her. Instead of slinking away feeling ashamed of her body, Jenna used the message as an opportunity to speak out about bullying and self-love.
"Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn't believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as [my husband]. I'll be honest that I was taken aback.
Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don't deserve him."
"This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always me reminded me that I'm beautiful even when my inner-dialogue doesn't match.
So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!)
I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you."
As if Jenna's response to the Internet troll wasn't perfect enough, Drew responded with his very own message.
"To be completely honest the real question you should be asking is, 'How did I land a girl like Jenna!?'
I'm just a simple man but Jenna has been making big moves since she was a kid. She's a drop-dead gorgeous woman who doesn't take no for an answer and while she's out conquering the world she makes sure everyone around her is inspired! She's helped me and thousands of other chase their dreams!
Meeting Jenna 11 years ago in college was the best thing that ever happened to me and now everyone can see exactly what I mean.
So cheers, Random Stranger for putting my wife in the spotlight, there's never been a more deserving game changer.
Love you, Babe!"
They go to show that love is much more than appearances and followers. True love has to do with compatibility, respect and admiration - three traits that Drew and Jenna clearly share with each other.
Since posting her story online, it's been liked by more than 87,000 users and shared more than 2,000 times. It's obvious people all around the world agree with Jenna's message of true love and body positivity!
