Niecy Nash On Changing The Conversation With Herself About Her C-Section Scar, Stretch Marks And Thick Thighs

April 28, 2017  |  

Does anyone really love their body 100 percent?

It would be nice if we all did, but most of us have our good days where we are absolutely feeling ourselves, and others where we pick ourselves apart.

This is too flabby.

This has too many stretch marks.

This? Ew.

But actress Niecy Nash reminded us that while it’s human to critique the way we look, sometimes even harshly, we should make a better effort to be kind to our bodies by thinking about all they’ve gone through with us. In a series of pictures, the Claws star proudly showed off her “flaws” while rocking and owning a swimsuit that she initially felt self-conscious in.

I APOLOGIZE to myself! I bought a new swimsuit and tried it on last night, then proceeded to Drag Myself😩- pointing out every “flaw”, every bump, lump, scar, ripple & stretch mark. Then u heard my sisters voice @kstew222 in my head say “watch what you say about MY sister”….then I remembered that my body will hear everything my mind thinks about it…. then I thought about my dear sister friend @daniebb3 and how she celebrates her chocolatey thickness ( she’s so fine!)😘…then I changed my conversation with myself: These hips caught two husbands (and a few boos) 😏, my thighs touch but I gained weight having good food with great people👅. I see my c-section scar peeking out ( thank you @thekatvond for putting a tattoo over it) but it’s a reminder that I brought 3 beautiful children into the world 👶🏽 I allowed my stretch marks to whisper ” you are a grown ass women who has survived a few thangs & STRETCHED in ways you never thought you could” My mom always said “They don’t teach “Kind” in school, you gotta learn that on your own”. Loving your body can be a rollercoaster ride ESPECIALLY WITHOUT A FILTER! but…With all that said I purpose to be kinder to myself today then I was yesterday…. tomorrow i’ma try to keep the it going “I love you Niecy”

Check out the images of Nash showing love to herself below and take a page from her book by being kind when it comes to the conversations you have with yourself about your body.
