Sadie Robertson has a body image message that she has chosen to share with the world. The Duck Dynasty star, 17, posted a video on YouTube of her talking about her own body image and how she struggles with being imperfect. What started out as a candid online diary turned into a viral video, and the teen is getting loads of attention this week for it.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Robertson was on Good Morning America to talk about her body issues and how she is able to get through the tough self-critical times that she has. Sadie says that her faith in God really helps her.
“The thing is, it’s like God is my rock for me. I’m not saying that you have to live that way. I want to share my message because if it can help somebody, it’s worth it. That’s just who I am. That’s just what I believe.”
Sadie Robertson’s body image message is a strong one, and it’s important for young people to hear. Although many would look at Sadie and think that she’s pretty close to perfect (she’s very pretty, has a nice smile, and is slender), she will tell you that she’s just like every other teen.
According to Star Pulse, Sadie says that she looks in the mirror and she sees “flaws,” and that isn’t always easy to deal with.
Sadie has spoken out about these feelings and wants everyone to know that it’s not about comparing yourself to someone else. It’s about embracing what you’ve got — something that so many people seem to forget.
“I just think it’s like important for girls to know that it’s like no matter who you are, what position you’re in, you know, everybody struggles with insecurities and everybody kind of compares themselves to somebody else, if they want to admit it or not. And I just wanted people to know that it’s, like, no matter who you are you can’t reach it by, like, comparing yourself to other humans.”
Sadie Robertson’s body image message is quite simple: “Just be you, and live original.”
According to ABC News, Sadie truly believes that body image issues can hold people back from being their best selves.
“Don’t look at somebody and say, ‘This is what I want to be,’ because in reality if you are seeking self-approval or human approval, you are never going reach your goal. You can only reach it by God.”
