Nowadays, more and more people are concerned about their health and how their body looks. Gym memberships continue to grow, but so does prejudice.


One mother decided that she had had enough of believing that she wasn't worth anything in the eyes of other people and, on January 8, 2017, she took to Facebook to express her feelings.

Kirsten Bosly, from Perth, Australia, confessed that she used to hate taking photos because she didn't like the way she looked in them but that changed after reading a special meme, as reported by Faith Tap.

The mother-of-two was at the beach and she was feeling very self-conscious and uncomfortable. She believed that people were judging her for wearing a bathing suit.


In the post shared on Facebook, she said that she never felt confident enough to show her body to other people and that her body's imperfections hindered her from enjoying life.

According to the source, being overweight, Bosly had refrained from appearing in photos because she didn't want her shame to be perpetuated. She just didn't like her physical self.

But, while she was watching her children play in the sand, she read something online that made her think. It was a meme that said that people should take photos with their children because, one day, that is all they will have.


As reported by Faith Tap, that message struck one of Bosly's nerves. She didn't want her children to be left with nothing but memories. They should be able to see her whenever they wanted; and for that, she would have to stop caring about what others would think.

She knew what she had to do. She called her children and asked her husband to take a photo of them. With all of her imperfections, and wearing the bathing suit, Bosly smiled along with the most important people in her life.
