Plus Size Blogger Says She’s Not Brave For Posting Bikini Photo

When blogger Jessica Kane posted this bikini shot, she got the response she wasn't expecting. She was being dubbed brave and courageous for flaunting her curves which she is so familiar with. 

So she decided to write a response of her own.

THIS WAS NOT BRAVE. I've been told how brave I am for not having a coverup, but going with out a wrap would only take bravery if I cared what others thought of me, but I don't. I spend my time worrying about things I CAN control and this day, I was only thinking about how fab I felt and how much sun I was catching ☀️👍 Things that DO take bravery? A family battling tragic illness, a mother trying to beat addiction, a person trying to break free of domestic violence, reaching out for help when you have already planned your suicide and feel like you can't breath one more day. THAT is brave. Not wearing a swimsuit at the beach. LIVE life and only worry about what really matters 💯. EDIT // can't believe the support and attention brought to this and thank you from bottom of my heart in helping spread the message to be human shouldn't be brave and to say so diminishes your value and theirs. Join in by sharing your picture with #thisisntbrave. And thank you fellow curvy pioneer @themarcyminute for taking this pic! 👉And keep up with my body diversity mission as I take over as Creative Director of Cool Gal Blue...full deets on my blog ❤️.

We couldn't agree more with her. 

She loves her body the way it is, so why wouldn't she flaunt it without thinking twice?

Everyone needs to take a page out of Jessica's book.
