Nabela Noor is a Bangladeshi- American make up artist. She has managed to create a huge fan following for herself on Instagram because her make up is always on point.
However, she recently pointed out how she has been the target of body shaming
People are quick to point fingers at her weight and repeatedly try to bring her down because of it. In the many messages that she receives, not all are appreciative of the work that she does rather it is a constant effort to make her conform to their version of “beauty”.
Nabela, however, took to Instagram to address those haters and told them how she does not give a damn at all. She pledged to not let any of these comments effect her anymore.
Repost: @hudabeauty I literally love her ?? Words of wisdom ?????? always love yourself♥️ ・・・ Repost: @nabela THIS IS ME ?? In 2017, I was called a pig, fat, ugly, a monster… I was told I should kill myself because of how I look. I received thousands of messages like this all year & there have been times where I let those words destroy me. But as my confidence strengthened, I became a fortress of self-love that could not be broken by the words of unhappy people. I learned quickly that happy people don’t say hurtful things. And that happiness begins with self-love. The girl I see in the mirror is beautiful with and without makeup, whether I am a size 6 or a size 16. So as 2018 begins, I’m leaving behind all of the words that once hurt me – all of the doubt that once controlled me. No one can tell us who we are. We are glorious. We are beautiful. We are worthy. This video is a small victory in my self-love revolution & I can’t wait to continue the fight in 2018. I am not the things they say I am. I will never be reduced to their words. I am brave, I am strong, I am who I’m meant to be. This is me. ?

The message of this video is so strong. She literally wipes off these labels and moves on towards doing what she enjoys
This is of course not easy to do. People are constantly trying to bring each other down. We find ourselves surrounded by so many labels everyday. It is only natural that these labels effect people, they internalise them and feel that they are not good enough to do anything in life.
Several girls reached out to Nabela to thank her for the video
Due to her personal experience, she realized how important it is to be kind to people. She understands what people go through and how far a positive comment can take them.
Spinning because the love and support has been UNREAL. Wow. These past few days have been incredible… I released my “This is Me” video with no idea of how it would be received. All I knew was that I had a message to share and sharing that message was so emotional and so LIBERATING. Thank you for letting me bare my soul and accepting me without judgment. Thank you for the incredible messages of support and for loving me as I am. But most importantly, thank you for BEING YOU. Kind people do kind things. Loving souls spread love like wildfire. I have witnessed so much love and goodness in these past few days, and it only has proven to me that there is way more good in this world than bad. There is more light than darkness. I am on a mission to spread self-love, and with you I know we can drown out the voices of doubt and shame that surround us and uplift the blaring truth that we are ENOUGH, we are BEAUTIFUL and we are WORTHY. Right here. Right now. As we are. ?
Nabela Noor is the inspiration we all need to break free from labels
There are millions of girls out their consuming content which pushes and encourages them to be a particular kind of “beautiful”. But it’s artists like these who show the world that the definition of being beautiful is being comfortable in your own skin. Being fat, thin, short, tall, fair, or dark are no standards of beauty.
