Having been known for using social media to promote body positivity, Kat Gumabao, one of the sisters of hunky actor Marco Gumabao and volleyball player Michelle Gumabao, was praised by netizens for showing off her scars and stretch marks in her latest Instagram post.
The plus-size model reminded her fans that it is normal to have a flawed physical appearance, writing: "Be REAL in this pretentiously perfect world. It’s normal to have stretch marks, a not so tight belly, acne, scars and whatever it is that you see when you zoom in."
With almost everyone guilty of being stuck on social media nowadays, she also told her followers to surround themselves with people who bring out the best in them and stay away from those that make them feel bad about themselves.
"Social media should be an inspiration booster not a magnifying glass for insecurities. Gravitate to those who bring out the best in you, those who inspire you to grow and to love yourself more. Stay away from accounts that make you jealous or question your life," she wrote.
She then went on by giving advice about owning one's self and putting an end to the habit of comparing one's life to that of others.
"The moment you stop comparing your life to others will be the moment you learn to love what you have and appreciate everything that you are. And if you need a reminder, always remember; I’m rooting for you," she ended.
