How often have you had negative thoughts about yourself? I for one have had plenty. Thoughts like: ‘I’m not good enough. I suck at life. I’m ugly. My body isn’t pretty.’ There have been so many times where I was feeling insecure, for example about my body.
So when Marlies Dekkers (you know, queen of Dutch lingerie) asked me to walk the runway for her in her new collection (together with my two ladies Linsey and Nathalie) my response was: hell no. Wearing lingerie or a bathing suit, in public? Where people are intentionally staring at me? And where people are taking my picture? I don’t think so. Nuh-uh.
I ended up saying yes because of the story behind the show (which you can read via #linkinbio). I conquered my insecurity (never ever will I be bothered to walk around in my bikini on the beach anymore), will you face yours?
PS: To all the women out there reading this: you are so beautiful. And also so much more than that. Don’t ever forget that 🙏🏼❤️ link in bio!
