She’s a former Miss Universe contestant, a top model and a fitness guru but even Roz Purcell says she is insecure about her body.

The gym buff revealed how damaging social media can be this week when she pointed out she was only worried about her “cellulite” and “stretch marks” because she worries about what other people will think.

Taking to Instagram, Roz re-shared a post where she said sometimes she ends up putting down her phone and feeling like “s***”.

“I know I went on a little rant about social media yesterday and I think all of you agreed that sometimes you end up putting down your phone feeling sh** about yourself,” she wrote.

“It happens all of us & it’s so important that if that happens you take time to tell yourself that you are worth more & comparing yourself to someone from little tiny snippets of their life isn’t realistic.

“Social media is great in a lot of ways and we need to remember why it started to be social with people – of course people are mostly going to post the good stuff that’s going on & you have to remember that.

I don’t really usually post this kind of stuff over here but after all the DMs I got about this yesterday I want to say something. I know I went on a little rant about social media yesterday and I think all of you agreed that sometimes you end up putting down your phone feeling shit about yourself. It happens all of us & it’s so important that if that happens you take time to tell yourself that you are worth more & comparing yourself to someone from little tiny snippets of their life isn’t realistic. Social media is great in a lot of ways and we need to remember why it started to be social with people – of course people are mostly going to post the good stuff that’s going on & you have to remember that. I set this challenge over on stories this morning and it’s something I do 1-2 times a week. I have to reach somewhere before I check any social channels 😂 yep you heard it. I have to get to the top of Killiney Hill before I click on Inatagram,it lets me decide how I start my day rather than going on social straight away and seeing posts that might or might not end up making me feel crap. So pick a park nearby or even your walk to work. Take that time for you & stop to rub all the dogs you pass 😂 Also side note, for a lot of us our insecurities are based on what others might think of them – ***k that no one gives a shit & if they do “its cliche” but it really is their problem. We can get really caught up in our flaws, I’ve spent years hating parts of me – which sounds silly cause it’s part of me and it’s not going anywhere so you have to stop and learn to love them. I remember I used to moan about my legs all the time being bigger than my sisters until my mum said- you need to stop and think of the positives sure aren’t they great legs for cycling and I was like yeahhhh you’re right they are🤣 since then I’m forever outwaying the negative thoughts with positives.
