Ever since the dawn of the internet, there have been trolls. These broken, deeply insecure people love nothing more than to bring others down to their level by preying on their insecurities. When Instagrammer and Podcaster Jenna Kutcher was messaged by someone who ‘couldn’t believe’ she had managed to land herself such a hot husband, she decided to neutralize her troll’s power completely by sharing her experience and turning it into an inspiring message of body positivity.
Jenna and her husband Drew have been married for 11 years and are deeply in love. Jenna is a beautiful, healthy and successful woman, and Drew is a loving husband and fitness and health coach. Drew’s honed physique from his days in the gym does, Jenna admits, play on her mind when she looks at herself in the mirror.
“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? She said. “I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him.”
So her troll had managed to find her weakness and ruthlessly exploit it. “I’ll be honest that I was taken aback.”
But instead of letting the troll get to her, she decided to show everybody why love is so much more than skin deep. “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,” she said. “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 all that (and so much more!).”
“I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you. Double tap if true love doesn’t see size.”
Her frank honestly and positive message has inspired thousands of people who relate to her insecurities. Because for some reason society still has a hang-up about seeing couples of differing sizes together, especially if it is the woman who is heavier.
Put it down to ignorance, jealousy, the constant pushing of body ideals through media and marketing or whatever, but something is not quite right. As one commenter put it: “Let us also take a moment to acknowledge how backwards it is that our world thinks that she is “too fat” to be with him. When did a lovely curvy woman, who is clearly of average size, become a symbol of someone unlovable?! It’s crazy! Love is love is love.”
