'I was meant to be beautifully flawed': Ileana D'Cruz shares how she now accepts herself

| @indiablooms | 01 Oct 2020, 06:56 pm

Mumbai/IBNS: Indian actress Ileana D'Cruz on Thursday wrote a long post on Instagram stating how she has gradually accepted herself.

In the post, where Ileana can be seen in a bikini, the actress shared how she used to worry about her physical flaws.

Ileana wrote, "I’ve always worried about how I looked. I’ve worried my hips are too wide, my thighs too wobbly, my waist not narrow enough, my tummy not flat enough, my boobs not big enough, my butt too big, my arms too jiggly, nose not straight enough, lips not full enough..... I’ve worried that I’m not tall enough, not pretty enough, not funny enough, not smart enough, not “perfect” enough."

She added, "Not realising I was never meant to be perfect. I was meant to be beautifully flawed. Different. Quirky. Unique. Every scar, every bump, every “flaw” just made me, me. My own kind of beautiful.

"That’s why I’ve stopped. Stopped trying to conform to the world’s ideals of what’s meant to be beautiful. I’ve stopped trying so hard to fit in. Why should I?? When I was born to stand out."
