In a society full of beauty standards, many people are conditioned to believe that it is the appearances that determine the worth of people. And it was precisely on this subject that 29-year-old photographer and entrepreneur Jenna Kutcher shed light on social media.
She decided to bring the issue to the forefront after she was questioned on Instagram about her ten-year marriage to Drew Kutcher.
Her husband "is too handsome" for her...
Jenna was taken aback when a follower questioned her about how she had managed to conquer a man as handsome as her husband, Drew.
Impacted by the gross questioning, the blogger decided to respond and ended up doing a deep reflection on the subject.
According to Jenna, the exuberant beauty of the companion was, in fact, one of the reasons that made her feel insecure about her body.
"Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him," she noted.
The entrepreneur follows the text by extolling Drew's companionship and showing how he was largely responsible for making her see her own beauty and value.
"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 added.
Finally, she says no, she does not have a body within the established standards of beauty for women, but it is not only that which leads us to love someone since we are much more than our appearances.
"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 alllll that (and so much more!)"
Her husband's response is also beautiful, read them below:
I just wanted to quick say how weird this whole “going viral” thing has been while we’re showing up on all the main news sites and suddenly newsworthy. Holy, there’s a lot of new faces hanging out here, what’s up!? If you’ve been here awhile, thanks for being awesome! I love what’s happening and I love how more people are getting to see what our married life is like, but that’s why it’s so weird to me in the first place. We’re just an average, Midwest married couple who hangs with their dogs and loves having fun together. Isn’t marriage supposed to be about love, acceptance and cherishing one another no matter what? The way we look has nothing to do with the way we love and viral or not, we’re just thankful to have each other and inspire others. At the end of the day worthiness can’t come from other people’s opinions of you, it has to come from within and if doing life with my beautiful wife is newsworthy, then let us be an example of what real #relationshipgoals are! 👫🙌🏼🐶 Tag your partner in crime below if you love them no matter what! . THANK YOU 📸 @mrslindseyroman!
What a crazy week! “Going viral” has probably been the weirdest, funniest, and coolest thing that has ever happened to us. Instagram has united us with so many people from around the world. We are so grateful that we have been able to touch and inspire countless people, it’s truly an AMAZING feeling! Thank you, thank you, thank you for ALL the heartfelt messages you’ve been sending us, we definitely hear you, notice you, and appreciate you! And to all you haters and trolls, we’re praying for you! Love who you want to love, be kind to others, don’t compare yourself to strangers on the internet, be how you want to be and have fun doing it! You might just inspire the world by simply being YOU.
