Just recently we talked about all the reasons why body shaming isn't cool and will never be thanks to a brave Selena Gomez who openly spoke out about loving her body regardless of all the criticisms she was receiving. This time around Pretty Little Liars star Sasha Pieterse became the center of criticism because of her current appearance and health. She also went through body shaming (not cool now, not cool ever) when mean things were said about her physical appearance through different social media channels. Instead of simply taking it all in, crying to herself, or fighting back violently, the actress instead spoke out about what she was going through and shared words of encouragement for all girls who have ever gone through or are going through something similar. 

And we just have to repeat these 2 lines that truly sums it all up–"YOU and YOUR health are what matters, not anyone else's opinions and assumptions of you. Getting healthy isn't just about working out and eating right (however extremely important) it's also about surrounding yourself with those who care about you and want to see you succeed and become the best you can be."


At the same time, Selena Gomez continues to share her thoughts on strength and what true beauty is through her latest interview during her Pantene commercial shoot. Click play and hear what she has to say!

"Being strong is beautiful," that's what Selena stresses on and we can't agree more! Remeber that accepting and loving every bit of yourself is the key to finding true happiness and knowing your self worth and never about what anyone else has to say about it.
