Ali Manno proves the power of corners.
The former “Bachelorette” star recently shared an Instagram-reality, reminding her more than 946,000 followers to be kind to themselves and avoid comparing themselves to what they see on social media.
In the make-up-free video, the 38-year-old mother of two posed in a blue sports bra and black leggings, explaining that “social media is every corner”.
“Look how fit I am, I mean I feel like I’m actually pretty fit,” she said before adjusting the camera angle and pose to show off her stomach. “Don’t be hard on yourself.”
“Let’s not be so hard on ourselves,” she doubled down in the caption. “What we see in others at any given moment is not the whole picture, both mentally and physically. So be kind to yourself and others.”
Fans have been showering Manno’s Instagram Reel with supportive comments, thanking him for “keeping it real.”
“I love how you are always real, honest, open and honest,” one person commented.
“Such a true message. Filters and social media can make us so hard on ourselves, but transparency and honesty help.” added another. “Thank you for being a bright light”
“Thank you for being so real and transparent with us. I really needed this tonight,” wrote another.
“Thanks for keeping it real.” a fan shared.
Last year, fans applauded Manno for celebrating her postpartum “mommy poo” in another body-positive Instagram clip.
“I have never been stronger and prouder of how I take care of my body to be as strong and healthy as possible for myself and my family,” she wrote.
“I still have my abs rolls. And my body is amazing with or without them,” Manno added. “So be kind to yourself. That body of yours is the reason you’re alive and breathing today… so I’d say that’s pretty cool.”
