“163cm, 60 kg, happy,” said the Indonesian actress, Tara Basro who has recently gained attention for her viral self-love portraits on Instagram.
The lead actress for Perempuan Tanah Jahanam, is known for being vocal about accepting and loving her own body shape, thus through her platform, she wishes to influence other women to do the same. To her 450k followers, she proudly shows off her tummy folds and stretchmarks in two black and white portraits, gaining much love and supports from all over the places.
On her post, she writes “I am used to hear people bad talking their own body since long time ago, until I started doing the same thing to myself. With heavy self-criticizing and self-degrading thoughts. I wish we could see more good things and positive sides, also be more grateful for what we have—and eventually make the best out of it rather than focusing on what we want. After a long journey, I can proudly say that I love my body and I’m proud of it. Let yourself bloom.”
Dari dulu yang selalu gue denger dari orang adalah hal jelek tentang tubuh mereka, akhirnya gue pun terbiasa ngelakuin hal yang sama.. mengkritik dan menjelek2an. Andaikan kita lebih terbiasa untuk melihat hal yang baik dan positif, bersyukur dengan apa yang kita miliki dan make the best out of it daripada fokus dengan apa yang tidak kita miliki. Setelah perjalanan yang panjang gue bisa bilang kalau gue cinta sama tubuh gue dan gue bangga akan itu. Let yourself bloom ?✨
Quoting from Herworld, Tara admitted that her self-love process has begun since the past three years, and it takes a long time for her to do it right. The 29-years-old actress used to be extremely careless about her body, until she realizes that she was killing herself slowly. Thus, she started to rebuild herself by stop consuming animal products, doing more exercises, and learn how to listen to her heart better. One of her tips to her self-love therapy is by saying good things about herself in the morning.
