Although plus-size fashion blogger Jessica Kane welcomes the positive and sweet comments about her body confidence, she still doesn’t want to be considered brave.
Recently, Jessica shared a photo of her on Facebook, wearing a swimsuit on the beach. However, she didn’t share this because she considers herself brave. She posted it because she has self-confidence.
To prove her point, she took to her social media account on April 14 and posted a photo of herself in a one-piece bathing suit. It was captioned like this:
“THIS WAS NOT BRAVE. I’ve been told how brave I am for not having a coverup, but going without a wrap would only take bravery if I cared what others thought of me, but I don’t. I spend my time worrying about things I CAN control and this day, I was only thinking about how fab I felt and how much sun I was catching. Things that DO take bravery? A family battling tragic illness, a mother trying to beat addiction, a person trying to break free of domestic violence, reaching out for help when you have already planned your suicide and feel like you can’t breath one more day. THAT is brave. Not wearing a swimsuit at the beach. LIVE life and only worry about what really matters.”
The photo has now accumulated more than 600,000 likes and 53,000 shares on Facebook. Through her post, the fashion blogger hopes she could help other people put things in perspective and focus on the more important things in life.
