Countless celebrities have talked about self-love and building a sense of self-worth, Hollywood star, Lupita even wrote a book about it.

However media girl, Bolinto, real name Bolanle Olukanni, took the message to a personal level when she shared a post and an accompanying caption preaching self-love.

In the caption, she revealed when she first saw stretch marks on her body during her teenage years and how she tried to hide her body by changing her body posture and dressing in full garments. She went on to say that she has finally risen above the feeling that having stretch marks does not make her imperfect as she has come to the realization that she is beautiful, no matter what.

She wrote: “I first got stretch marks on my shoulders when I had my first Growth spurt . I was probably 12. All my friends would wear tank tops and spaghetti tops and I felt like I had to cover my shoulders. It affected my confidence during my teenage years and I spent my early early adulthood hiding my shoulders. Well , I finally got over it and I realized it’s not a big deal . So to women and men who have stretch marks and feel self-conscious about it …please don’t – you are beautiful no matter what ! ❤️❤️❤️ #beautylook #growingpains #stretchmarks#flawsandall
