Mladá žena bojovala s poruchami príjmu potravy, dnes ľuďom svojimi fotkami otvára oči

DUBAJ 5. júla - Danae Mercer pracuje ako novinárka. Venuje sa zaujímavým témam, no predovšetkým zdraviu a cestovaniu. Kedysi bojovala s poruchami príjmu potravy, no v dnešných dňoch o tom otvorene rozpráva. Stala sa z nej influencerka a na sociálnych sieťach sa preslávila najmä tým, že nemá problém ukázať celulitídu či poukázať na pravú tvár problému, uvádza portál NY Post.

Svetlo dokáže urobiť veľa 

Danae nepotrebuje používať filtre na to, aby upútala pozornosť ľudí. Na sociálnych sieťach otvorene hovorí o problémoch, ktorým čelia najmä ženy. Nechce, aby sa niektoré dámy cítili menejcenné len preto, že vidia dokonalé fotky influenceriek na Instagrame. 

Práve preto poukazuje na to, že dobré svetlo či správny uhol pohľadu dokážu urobiť skutočné divy. „Sedíte na verejnosti inak ako v súkromí? Ja som to robila roky. Veci sa však v priebehu tohto roka zmenili. Dnes vám chcem pripomenúť, že je v poriadku sedieť uvoľnene. Pózovanie je zábava, ale ak nepózujete, nie ste menejcenným. Je fantastické byť sám sebou. Úctyhodné. A silné,“ napísala k príspevku. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Do you SIT differently in PUBLIC than you do in PRIVATE? I did. For YEARS I did. In public, I would pose. Squeeze. Arch. Tighten. In private, I’d sit comfortably: shoulders relaxed, body loose, just being human. And I imagine that maybe, just maybe, I’m not alone. I read an article once talking about the BEST WAY to POSITION your body on the beach. It was all ‘knees up, core tight, never lay flat’. And if you had extra wiggles and jiggles around the hips and thighs? The article recommended DIGGING A HOLE in the SAND. To put that bum into. So it would, you know, look LESS. As a teen, I did these things. And then, as an adult, I still held myself sucked in or avoided crossing my legs because heaven forbid anyone should see my CELLULITE. Things have CHANGED in this last year. I wish they would have changed so much sooner. So today, I just want to remind you: It is OK to sit comfortably. To RELAX while you’re RELAXING. Perfection isn’t the price you pay to exist in a human body. And comfort is pretty darn incredible. Posing is great fun, but NOT POSING doesn’t make you worth ANY LESS. Even if it means your wobbly bits come out on show. Or your skin folds. Or you’re just, well, YOU. Because being YOU is incredible. And worthy. And powerful. In whatever way, shape, or form. You got this girl. Go sit comfortably. x Photos @chiclebelle who is just the best #selflove #selfacceptance #bodyacceptance #iweigh #feminist

Ľudia ju milujú

Ľudia si jej otvorenosť neskutočne vážia. V ďalšom príspevku zas poukazuje na to, prečo je dokonalosť nebezpečná. „Dokonalosť vytvára bariéru. Ukážte dnes niekomu vašu nedokonalosť. Ukážte mu svoju pravú tvár,“ uviedla na sociálnej sieti. 

Mladá novinárka si svojou úprimnosťou získala srdcia ľudí z rôznych kútov sveta. Na Instagrame má milión fanúšikov a viacerí jej píšu, že ich inšpiruje. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Insta vs Reality / or why PERFECTION is DANGEROUS. Perfection puts a wall up between us and others. It does. Whether it’s in POSING FOR PHOTOS or LIVING OUR LIVES. Especially for us PEOPLE PLEASERS. Because it shows only our sparkly bits. Our STAGED bits. Our MASKS that we wear when we are quietly afraid no one will love us otherwise. It proves we are good little girls. Only here’s the thing: PERFECTION builds that barrier. Because ultimately, it’s only a half truth. A brief moment. A STAGED PHOTO. And us humans, we are more complex than that. We are raw and clumsy with belly laughs and cellulite and fears and dreams so fragile we dare only to whisper them into existence. So today, show someone your imperfect. Show them your real. Let them see you for all the splendour and glory you are, and let YOURSELF be SEEN for the same. Whether it’s simply rocking your WIGGLES at the BEACH or opening up about your HOPES. Show YOU. As someone who has only started embracing VULNERABILITY in her 30s, trust me on this: It’s so much more incredible than perfection could ever hope to be. It’s human. It’s wonderful. It’s real. x Photos @chiclebelle gabrielleph as always #selflove #feminist #selfacceptance #inspiringquotes #positivequotes #iweigh #mentalhealth

ME / ALSO ME - Because POSING is fun but sitting COMFORTABLY is even better. Now let’s talk DIET CULTURE myths. For years, I thought if I GOT RID of my CELLULITE, I would be happy. It has always been my hang up. So I cut calories. I dropped dress sizes. I shrank. And I waited for that joy, for that feeling of confidence. It didn’t come. Not even at my smallest. None of these things made me feel BETTER about MYSELF. And now, now, years later, I am softer. Squishier. No longer starving. I weigh more. But my heart is lighter. Because here’s the thing I learned the hard way, The thing that diet ads never tell you: BODY IMAGE starts on the inside. It does. Being comfortable with your cellulite? Your stretchmarks? Your bits that wiggle and jiggle and fold here or crease there? All that requires mental work. Internal heavy lifting. Where day by day, month by month, you remind yourself how INCREDIBLE you are. And how your WORTH, your VALUE as a HUMAN, doesn’t CHANGE even when your body does. Nor does anyone else’s. So today, fight against the urge to measure WHO YOU ARE as a HUMAN against whatever is or isn’t happening with your body. Extend the same kindness to other women around you. And allow yourself the softness of a bit of self love. Because you ARE wonderful. You ARE incredible. You ARE WORTHY. Posed or relaxed, sandy or sweaty or sleepy or in any state. You’re loved. x PHOTOS @chiclebelle @gabrielleph #bodyacceptance #selflove #womenirl #cellulite #stretchmarks #normalizenormalbodies #instagramvsreality

You DID NOT wake all the way up this morning to hate your bum. Thighs. Tummy. Self. Right now many of us are spending so much more TIME ONLINE. And the comparison game starts to creep in, where we measure ourselves against other people’s curated presentations. Fight against this. Fight against anything that makes you feel LESS THAN. Maybe that means curating your social feeds. Or maybe it means spending time doing things that make you feel stronger, like meditating, reading, pausing. Because you’re powerful and wonderful. Complicated and magnificent. Concerned (aren’t we all?) and hopeful. And you did not wake up, show up, stand up today, just to hate parts of yourself. You’re worth so much more than that. You DESERVE so much more than that. Always. Always. ? by @chiclebelle #talkingoutloud #womenirl #corpspositif #normalizenormalbodies #womenirl #effyourbeautystandards #iweigh #bodypositive #shapesquad #whstrong

These are BOTH ME. And neither is AN ISSUE. Someone messaged the other day offering to fix this ISSUE with my BODY. Like my CELLULITE. My squiggly bits. It was well intentioned. Kindly meant. ‘Train with me and your issue will be gone.’ But no. No. I do not view my body as an issue. January is full of brutal resolutions and intense goals. Many of them link to weight loss. Goals are great. Fitness is fantastic. But do not pursue these things at the EXPENSE of your mental health. How we speak TO OURSELVES is so important. And like a toxic friend, we can bully our dreams. Our hopes. We can crush our plans before they even start. Let’s not call our bodies ‘issues’. Let’s focus on being strong. Balanced. Healthy. Powerful. Not for all the things we hate about ourselves, but for all the parts we love. Because front or back, soft or strong, no part of us is an ISSUE. Not even one bit. #iweigh #whstrong #womenirl #normalizenormalbodies #feminist #womenwhoroar #womenshealthmag #strongertogethertoday #cellulite #bopo #bodypositivity Snapped by @chiclebelle
