Irish model Louise O’Reilly has been praised for her latest Instagram post about body confidence.
Louise, who also runs blog Style Me Curvy, has long been an advocate for body positivity and regularly shares inspiring messages on social media.
In her latest post, Louise addressed how people with low self-esteem often shy away from events or certain clothes.
“One consistent thing I notice when it comes to low body confidence is the amount of opportunities and possibilities people talk themselves out of, whether its avoiding going out to events, holidays, fun days out, totally trying to avoid buying a bikini or swimsuit and just laying on a beach,” she explained.
“A vital part to helping your body confidence and self-esteem is cutting out the negative talk where possible… especially cutting out the negative talk with yourself or putting yourself down in front of other people.
“All these little things add up like ‘I can never wear a bikini just look at my cellulite’ or ‘I’ll never go to the beach.. what if I’m the biggest there’.. when the reality is no one else has even noticed as they are so wrapped up in being in a swimsuit themselves!
“Slow small changes every day and limiting negativity will make a MASSIVE difference to your confidence and self esteem… Life is so short.. make every single day count… go to that beach”
Fans of the blogger praised her for her powerful words agreeing that the message was “so important”.
It’s not the first time Louise’s positive posts received a lot of attention. Last month, the beauty shared an unedited photo of herself featuring “a touch of back fat and cellulite which received reams of support.
