These Photos Were Taken Seconds Apart And When She Posted Them Online...

With the advent of technology and social media, stupidity and stereotypes have also advanced simultaneously. People have invented terms like "body shaming" and "real women" which they use to satisfy the judgemental part of their brain. Apparently, thin equals to beautiful for many people and those who don't fall under this category are taken for not having a beautiful body.

Here's the story of Megan Jayne Crabbe, who instead of changing herself to make the world happy decided to change her attitude to make herself happier.

You can follow her on Instagram @bodyposipanda and help her mission of showing the world what "real" really is.

When in her teenage, she suffered from anorexia nervosa.

She says, "I started comparing my body to other people's when I was 5. I remember sitting in those tiny school chairs and being horrified at how much more space my thighs took up than the girl's next to me."

At 5, she would hear the world yelling - Shrink Yourself.

"Be small. Be beautiful, our kind of beautiful, at any cost. Under the spotlights of growing up those body image demons grew into something bigger, something hungrier, something that left no trace of me behind."

Eventually, she refused to listen to body shamers.

"I wish that person could see me now. I wish I could show them how hard I fought, how many tears I shed, how many demons I overpowered and how much self-hatred I overcame. I wish I could show them that recovery is possible. But since I can't show them, at least I can show all of you."

Apparently..

"We have no idea what real bodies look like anymore. And no, not real as in 'REAL women have curves' (screw that body shaming bull****, all women are real)."

The real meaning of Real.

The real meaning of Real.

"Real as in RAW, unedited, unposed, unairbrushed, REAL. Bodies from all angles, not just the most 'flattering' ones. We see so many painstakingly posed professional model bodies that we start to see our own as flawed. Abnormal. Ugly. But there really is no wrong way to have a body, despite what we've all been taught."

Her message to the world.

"I ve worked damn hard to love the body in these pictures and I won't let the world paint my unique features as flaws to be fixed. So this is my message to you - 

You are worthy of self love at any angle. You are beautiful posed or not. You deserve to embrace every part of yourself. And you are so much more than a body."

Respect for you Megan Crabbe. Be what you are.
