Model Iskra Lawrence Keeps It Real About Social Media In New IG Post

Iskra was one of the very first "plus size" women on Instagram to really break through, becoming a household name in modeling and working with brands such as Aeropostale and Loreal. 

She's always been an inspiration to me for accepting EVERY PART of my body, regardless of conventional beauty standards.

It looks like she also struggles with the daily pressures of social media (as I believe most of us do), posting a photo of herself following an "emotional breakdown", and detailing the experience in her caption. 

"It’s still an internal struggle to post absolutely everything," Iskra wrote. "I felt like a mess, and felt like I looked a mess and my emotions were shook after something that happened yesterday and a combination of other personal issues that I think lead to this emotional breakdown."


"I try and commit to showing you ALL the realness, even though I do feel more comfortable posting the “best bits” which there is nothing wrong with but I’m hoping this post can make at least one person feel better with not being OK.💕"

"I took this pic and wanted to post it because Instagram can be completely unrelatable, overwhelming, triggering and even damaging for our mental health.🚫Don’t ever compare your happiness, confidence, body, beauty, relationships, success or life to ANYONE online."
