You know how the old saying goes: “Everyone has an opinion.” This is apparent online and on social media. When folks can post without having their names attached to their cruel comments, they’ll let the nasty fly.
Trolls like these need to be called out for their unkind remarks. Granted, they’re just hoping to get a rise out of people. One woman from Wisconsin responded to them in a way that is getting her much love and props from the online community. Her inspiring message has gone viral; she’s shot down the trolls after giving them a thorough tongue-lashing.
Two years ago our fertility journey started on this island. Our lives changed the moment we saw the word “pregnant” on a test. Drew stayed up late reading books about becoming a dad, and I happily cut margaritas from my diet. We had no clue that the next 2 years would be filled with heartache, hope, and many pivots to our plan. ✨ The second time, I was certain it’d be different, ready for our redemption song. We found out in Hawaii and this time we were ready… except it again, ended with loss. Looking back, I can see God’s hand in the heartache. We were forced to grieve as a couple, forced into learning how to heal my body, forced towards empathy for those struggling in silence, forced to live life not for what was missing but for what we have. ✨ Sometimes you walk through storms and you can only see what’s in front of you. It likely feels impossible, hard, broken, scary and you’re wondering how the world keeps turning while you’re stuck. ✨ Today I want to remind you that the storms you are walking through are changing you in ways you didn’t know you could be changed and giving you perspective so that when the sun starts shining again, the light will shine through all your cracks of brokenness. Someday you’ll look back on these days and realize just how strong you really are. ✨ Tag the strongest people you know below. We are all walking through storms, mostly silently. Though our paths may not be the same, we can walk in tandem toward the light. #ihadamiscarriage #kutchersinkihei ✨ Photo: @mrslindseyroman Glam: @meiliautumnbeauty Van: @thereclassiccampers
Jenna Kutcher is an Instagrammer and host of the “Goal Digger” podcast. She is a strong, healthy, beautiful woman in her own right. She’s married to this guy: Drew Kutcher, aka “Mr. 6-Pack.” Drew is a personal trainer and health coach. He and Jenna met in college and have been together for ten years and in love every moment of that decade.
So some mean folks have voiced, quite unkindly how could Drew be with a woman like Jenna. He’s so fit, and she’s curvaceous.
Two major things are happening here right now that are worth sharing: ✨ 1️⃣ I’m celebrating the fact that this emoji (🌺) exists in real life and trying to become this one! 💃🏼 2️⃣ I’m praying that sticky bras do in fact stick and that they are boob sweat approved. 😂 ✨ Using only emojis below, tell me about your day! Ready? GO!
Jenna addressed the haters head-on; her message of body positivity and self-love has gone viral.
“Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as @kickingitwithkutch. I’ll be honest that I was taken aback,” Jenna wrote on Instagram.
Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as @kickingitwithkutch. I’ll be honest that I was taken aback. ✨ Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him. 🙋🏼 This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always me reminded me that I’m beautiful even when my inner dialogue doesn’t match. 🙌🏻 So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!) ✨ I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you. Double tap if true love doesn’t see size. Photo by: @mrslindseyroman
Jenna said that yes, she does feel insecure; those trolls hit her in a soft spot. “Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him.”
The viral post started from a stranger asking how Jenna landed a guy like me… but to be completely honest the real question you should be asking is, "How did I land a girl like Jenna!?" I'm just a simple man but Jenna has been making big moves since she was a kid. She's a drop-dead gorgeous woman who doesn’t take no for an answer and while she's out conquering the world she makes sure everyone around her is inspired! She’s helped me and thousands of other chase their dreams! Meeting Jenna 11 years ago in college was the best thing that ever happened to me and now everyone can see exactly what I mean. So cheers, random stranger for putting my wife in the spotlight, there’s never been a more deserving game changer. Love you babe! 😘
Jenna and Drew’s love is the real deal. They share more than just a physical attraction. “This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always reminded me that I’m beautiful even when my inner dialogue doesn’t match (and when I haven’t showered in days.)”
“Imagine someone loving you for who you are as a person. So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!)”
I loved this part of Jenna’s post. It got to the heart of so many insecurities and negative self-talk that we all experience.
“I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you. True love doesn’t see the size.”
After her post went viral, Drew chimed in to let the world know how much he loves his wife for more than just her body. But he loves her curves too.
“Isn’t marriage supposed to be about love, acceptance and cherishing one another no matter what?” Drew wrote on his own Instagram page. “The way we look has nothing to do with the way we love and viral or not; we’re just thankful to have each other and inspire others.”
I just wanted to quick say how weird this whole “going viral” thing has been while we’re showing up on all the main news sites and suddenly newsworthy. Holy, there’s a lot of new faces hanging out here, what’s up!? If you’ve been here awhile, thanks for being awesome! I love what’s happening and I love how more people are getting to see what our married life is like, but that’s why it’s so weird to me in the first place. We’re just an average, Midwest married couple who hangs with their dogs and loves having fun together. Isn’t marriage supposed to be about love, acceptance and cherishing one another no matter what? The way we look has nothing to do with the way we love and viral or not, we’re just thankful to have each other and inspire others. At the end of the day worthiness can’t come from other people’s opinions of you, it has to come from within and if doing life with my beautiful wife is newsworthy, then let us be an example of what real #relationshipgoals are! 👫🙌🏼🐶 Tag your partner in crime below if you love them no matter what! . THANK YOU 📸 @mrslindseyroman!
He continued, “At the end of the day worthiness can’t come from other people’s opinions of you, it has to come from within and if doing life with my beautiful wife is newsworthy, then let us be an example of what real #relationshipgoals are!”
Well said! Never allow others to dictate how you should feel about yourself. Love you for you, and your real beauty will shine through.
THE REALITY OF GOING VIRAL: We’ve spent the last few days gawking at the fact that society believes that seeing two people (who happen to have different body types) in love is newsworthy, and yet we are embracing it whole heartedly because it means that we get to share our message with YOU, with the world. 〜 We are not our bodies. I am not defined by titles like “curvy” or plus size, Drew is not defined by “Mr. Six Pack.” At the end of the day, we are the girl and the guy who fell in love and started dating in college after @kickingitwithkutch lost a bet that led to a first kiss – the rest is history. 〜 Our story is has held ups and down, light and loss and we’ve chosen to show up and turn the mess into our message. Because we believe the world is hungry for REAL and going viral has proven that. 〜 Here we are: Jenna and Drew, a small town couple who are as normal as they come and more in love today than the day they said “I do.” You might have met us because of our bodies but I pray you fall in love with our hearts and souls and stick around awhile. Will you? 〜 Photo by: @mrslindseyroman
