Influencer Shares Both ‘Perfect’ & ‘Unedited’ Photos To Normalize Normal Bodies

Social media can be so fake; hence be guided.

Georgie Clarke, a blogger from the United Kingdom, had struggled with mental health in the past, and most often, her physical appearance gets punished for it. She didn’t take care of herself yet remained critical of how she looked. It was undeniably a vicious cycle she dealt with for years without ever getting help or addressing the root of the problems in her head. But soon, she overcame the pressures with therapy and self-love.

Clarke has since learned to accept herself and officially launched a series on Instagram to remind her followers of 690K not to trust everything they see on social media. Each of her posts features two side-by-side photos, the same outfits and the same makeup but taken just a minute apart. The only difference is the approach, as the first is taken consciously while the second looks like a casual shot. Best light and flattering angles seem to do a lot, but Clarke has chosen to stay on the TRUTH

In her newest, the blogger shared a comparison to show that someone who understands modeling can create an image on the left, but in reality, and when relaxed, is the image on the right.

She explained: “The left image required to find the best light, find the most flattering angle, tense bum, stand on tiptoes, tense stomach and holding a breath. The right image requires nothing; just let relaxing and smiling. Both images are for my Instagram because I believe both images show my true self.”

“Normalize normal bodies. This is a reminder that just because someone appears to be smiling in a picture does not mean they’re not battling their own issues.” the blogger insisted. So far, Clarke’s series has been making a difference, proving that all the flawless people we see on our feed that we constantly measure against aren’t that perfect.

Of being able to fight off her mental health struggles, Clarke shared: “I am proud to say I am the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever felt, and my relationship with my body is just as important as my relationship with my brain.”

She added: “When my mental health struggles now, I have the tools to take care of myself. It’s taken so long to learn these tools, but with compassion and love for myself during these difficult times, I am able to recognize how important it is to take care of myself or ask for help.” However, studies have found that social media use is associated with greater feelings of isolation.
