Australian Influencer Keeps Revealing The Reality Behind ‘Perfect’ Instagram Photos

“Beauty is subjective.”

Bree Lenehan is not by any means a plus-size, but her honest approach to sharing her stories and being raw in her pictures has pulled many people in. The Australian influencer is always reminding people that her own perfect pictures are simply illusions.

Bree has over 612k followers on her page and is the co-creator of ‘Sweet Roulette Card Game’ where users are encouraged to do exercises as part of the game.

She’s often shared posed and real pictures of herself to show just how much of a difference knowing the right angle before snapping the picture can make.

“Me when I pose, angle my body a certain way & hike my bottoms up:,” she wrote. “Me when I just relax & stand up straight: ” (slide for more pictures)

“But if you only accept your body when it looks a certain way, that’s not self-love, that’s self-objectification,” she reminded people. “It’s so easy for us to judge ourselves against others, but it’s so important to remember that comparing: yourself to others, your posed body to your relaxed body.”

“Your achievements, job, productivity, everyday life compared to someone else’s online highlight reel is TORTURE… & hardly fair.”

“Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love social media — but there’s no denying that most share their best life & best versions of themselves on here, so it makes sense that we’ll find ourselves comparing ourselves & our lives while scrolling through.”

“Perfection is an illusion – we only see what someone wants us to see. The photos that are posted are only 1% of someone’s life.”

“There are 24 hours in each day, and we usually only see a few minutes of someone’s life online. (Myself included),” she continued. “Bad body image days happen to us all — so if you think weight loss or a makeover is going to magically fix that, you’re in for a shock, finding peace with your body & appearance happens when you start working from the inside out.”

“Beauty is subjective – you might not see your beauty, but you also don’t see the way your eyes light up at the sight of puppies or sunsets, so how can you really ever know your true beauty when you’ve only ever seen yourself in a mirror or photos?”

Positive comments poured under her post from being encouraged to prioritize self-love first before anything.

“Ugh. I can’t express what joy and relief your posts provide. Thank you so much; you’re amazing,” wrote one fan.

Another commented, “I love every single one of your captions, but I extra love this one 🥲”

One user told her, “These words really inspire me a lot. Thank you.”
