With a person as perfect as Sarah Lahbati, one would think she doesn't have any insecurities about her body.
But in an Instagram post she made on Wednesday, January 26, the mother of two proudly showed off for the first time what she deems her biggest insecurity — her stretch marks.
Posing in a black two-piece, Sarah flaunted the stretch marks on her tummy and left an empowering message on embracing and accepting your body.
"I’m tired of hiding my stretch-marks. I’m not perfect. No one is. What’s funny is it took me a while to accept that. My biggest insecurity," she wrote in the caption.
"To love me fully. To fully accept me. I’ve always been ready to give all of myself to my loved ones but never poured that same cup to myself."
"Took me some time to realize that my stretch marks are my best tattoos. A reminder that I am a strong and resilient woman [who's] been through a lot but most importantly, I’ve given birth to my two dearest sons, Zion and Kai. My angels. I am loved, understood & cherished by my husband. I couldn’t ask for anything more," she added.
She might have taken a while to fully accept it, but Sarah reminded every woman that they are beautiful just the way they are.
"This may sound dumb to you, but I just wanna let you know that you are enough and beautiful."
"I’m grateful to be alive, to be loved, messy, and to be fully myself. Wouldn’t have it any other way. Took a while for me to get here. But here I am. Proud. Cheers to all of you, women," she wrote.
Sarah recently went to El Nido, Palawan to celebrate her husband Richarda Gutierrez's birthday. They also brought their sons Zion and Kai with them.
