We don't usually get to see things like stretch marks or cellulite on the perfectly airbrushed Instagram feeds of image-conscious influencers and celebrities, which is why body positive accounts like the one run by Kenzie Brenna are so important.
Kenzie has committed her Instagram page to being one of celebration of all body types, and a place where the negative thoughts about our bodies are exposed.
The self love promoter recently posted a snap to her Instagram showcasing her stomach stretch marks, and had some words of wisdom to share about them.
'Does this affect the quality of who I am? No,' she captioned the post.
'Would it make you a better person if you got rid of these marks? No.'
'Would it make you kinder, more generous and a better lover if you had the money to erase them? No.'
'Then you're perfect. I don't feel perfect.That's cause perfect isn't a feeling.'
The YouTuber has posted a number of Instagram snaps celebrating her body and the bodies of other women, and has called out the double standards of sizeism and body shame numerous times.
'I love how people see me in full clothes and comment on how 'skinny' I look in them in comparison to these types of photos where the comments I get 'you're so brave. (Which I am) But, bravery requires an act of courage.'
'Courage isn't a characteristic we find in ourselves unless we are doing something out of strength, where the odds are stacked against us.'
'You don't tell a Victoria's Secret model that "they're so brave" for showing off their body or someone who is sculpted from a type of athleticism.'
'Bravery requires an acknowledgement of fear, possibility of loss, where chances of failure are high,' she said.
Posts like Kenzie's on social media are so necessary and important to remind us that flaws are in fact beautiful, and the things that we perceive as a negative don't actually affect who we are or the value of ourselves as women.
