Fitness-kaunotar ei ajellut karvojaan kolmeen vuoteen – tältä hän näyttää nyt

Monien mielestä nainen näyttää maskuliiniselta, jos hän ei ajele ihokarvojaan. Yhdysvaltalainen fitness-bloggaaja Morgan Mikenas, 21, on asiasta eri mieltä ja sotii esimerkillään naisten sosiaalisia paineita vastaan.

Mikenas on tyytyväinen itseensä sellaisena kuin on, eikä ole ajellut karvojaan kolmeen vuoteen. Kaunotar kertoo yli 95 000 Instagram-seuraajalleen, ettei tuomitse karvojaan ajelevia naisia, muttei itse enää koskaan aio palata entiseen.

If culture shifted to a place where the youth could freely be themselves without fear of being ostracized, think of what that would mean for the way we view our own body image and self worth. Remember back to the time in our lives when we were sexually maturing, and imagine what it would’ve meant for us if we didn’t feel ashamed of the changes our body/self was going through, and we could be confident in the person we are becoming, without the fear of not being good enough in society’s eyes. By having a young person modify themselves to fit into a cultural standard at such a confusing time in their life, puts people into a position to be less accepting of themselves. I hope to create movement towards a new trend for the next generations, so that we won’t have any reason to feel ashamed of who we are as we mature through life. I beat myself up for not feeling good enough as a young girl(for things that shouldn’t of mattered), and I hope by spreading awareness of my own experience, I can help others prevent feeling like they have to hold themselves back from who they want to be/ who they are.💙Do what you want, and do what feels right for you. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about who you are and the decisions you make. You are you, and being you is enough. I love you.💙#havenofear #beyou #iloveyou #namaste #gratitude #selflove #bodypositive #acceptance #weareone

Mikenaksella oli hyvin yksinkertainen syy päätökseensä. Hän kertoo, että karvojen ajeluun kului turhan paljon aikaa. Ensin hänen piti mennä suihkuun, jossa hän ajoi karvat. Sitten hänen piti pestä ne pois ja vielä erikseen pestä itsensä. Hän alkoi pohtia, miksi ylipäätään ajeli karvojaan: ”Miksi teen tätä enää? Siihen vain menee niin paljon aikaa.”

When something out our control happens, something that at first sight feels like a loss, I truly believe it has such potential behind it. I believe it gives us a chance to refine: our thinking, our skills, our being; to be better suited for the path we were destined for. And once we take the steps to be better, that’s when another door will open✨ Just because a door has closed in your face, doesn’t mean it is the end.🚪 And it doesn’t mean that it will be the last door to close in your face either. Whatever happens was supposed to be that way! Everything will run its course as it was meant to, the important thing is to not let what we cannot control dampen our spirit, and not give up. We must take it as a challenge to learn what we can from it. That to me is how we can make the most of being here💛💚🙏🏼 #namaste #gratitude #bethechange #bethechange #newbeginnings #beherenow

What do you do when you meet eyes with your reflection? Do you look away quickly, afraid or what you might see? Or do you stare into your eyes in search of something deeper? What you see is a direct reflection of all that your are, can be, will be. I beg you, please stop being so hard on yourself. Stop letting others opinions make you question your worth. You decide. You choose to see your strength. Look at yourself, honestly. You should be proud of how far you have come! What do you see when you see your reflection? I see someone who is comfy in their own skin, and is just so grateful to be here and get to live the human experience. Your mind can play tricks on you if you let it. Don’t let it only see the “ugly”. Stop your negative self talk by asking yourself, “ why does this make me feel this way?” We are creatures of habit, so make it a habit to believe in yourself and not let anything get in the way of your happiness🌞💫#selflove #feelgood #bethechange #namaste #gratitude #spreadlove #bodyhairdontcare #comfy #selfcare #word #divingdeep #reflection #loveandlight #mentalhealth

"So many years of education yet nobody ever taught us how to love ourselves and why it's so important." What we believe, becomes reality. When we believe we aren’t enough, we will let insecurity run our life. This is a reminder that YOU ARE ENOUGH! YOU are strong enough to face anything life throws at you! YOU are intelligent enough to conquer anything you dream of. YOU are worthy of love and respect from yourself and others.. and if people don’t accept you for who you are, FUCK EM!!👋🏼👋🏼 There will always be one person who will always accept/ appreciate the person you are, and that person is YOU!💖Please treat yourself well today and always, you are worthy.🌞#beyou #bodypositive #selflove #feelgood #befree #bethechange #spreadlove #namaste #gratitude #happyfriday

Lopetettuaan ihokarvojen ajelun, Mikenas huomasi, ettei hänen ihonsa enää tuntunut kutisevalta ja sänkiseltä, vaan hyvin pehmeältä.

Mikenas kertoo alla olevalla videolla syitä, miksi hän ei aio enää koskaan ajellla karvojaan.
