Niecy Nash Apologizes to Her Herself in Post Promoting Self-Love

Niecy Nash has something to say, and she wants her body (and her followers) to listen up. The actress and comedian posted a photo of herself in a bathing suit on Wednesday, but her empowering message wasn’t your average selfie caption. She is saying “I’m sorry” to… well, herself!

Niecy wrote, noting that she has the tendency to scrutinize her own figure, “I APOLOGIZE to myself! I bought a new swimsuit and tried it on, then proceeded to Drag Myself😩- pointing out every ‘flaw,’ every bump, lump, scar, ripple & stretch mark. Then u heard my sisters voice @kstew222 in my head say "watch what you say about MY sister.”

She then added that she and her body deserve better than that attitude because it’s given her so much! She went on to say, “...then I remembered that my body will hear everything my mind thinks about it….” She also thanked her “fine” friend Danielle Brooks for celebrating her own “chocolatey thickness,” telling herself, “These hips caught two husbands (and a few boo’s) 😏, my thighs touch but I gained weight having good food with great people👅.

Niecy also pointed out that her peeking c-section scar reminds her that she “brought 3 beautiful children into the world.”

I APOLOGIZE to myself! I bought a new swimsuit and tried it on, then proceeded to Drag Myself😩- pointing out every "flaw", every bump, lump, scar, ripple & stretch mark. Then u heard my sisters voice @kstew222 in my head say "watch what you say about MY sister"....then I remembered that my body will hear everything my mind thinks about it.... then I thought about my dear sister friend @daniebb3 and how she celebrates her chocolatey thickness ( she's so fine!)😘...then I changed my conversation with myself: These hips caught two husbands (and a few boo’s) 😏, my thighs touch but I gained weight having good food with great people👅. I see my c-section scar peeking out ( thank you @thekatvond for putting a tattoo over it) but it's a reminder that I brought 3 beautiful children into the world 👶🏽 I allowed my stretch marks to whisper " you are a grown ass women who has survived a few thangs & STRETCHED in ways you never thought you could" My mom always said "They don't teach "Kind" in school, you gotta learn that on your own". Loving your body can be a rollercoaster ride ESPECIALLY WITHOUT A FILTER! but...With all that said I purpose to be kinder to myself today then I was yesterday.... tomorrow i'ma try to keep the it going "I love you Niecy"❤❤❤❤❤ I’m my own #wcw ( #rp as a reminder) #brownskingirls

Niecy elaborated on how important it is to be kind to yourself: “My mom always said, ‘They don't teach Kind in school, you gotta learn that on your own.’ Loving your body can be a rollercoaster ride ESPECIALLY WITHOUT A FILTER!”

She concluded by saying that she will be kinder to herself moving forward, ending with, “i’ma try to keep the it going "I love you Niecy"❤❤❤❤❤ I’m my own #wcw ( #rp as a reminder) #brownskingirls.”

It looks like Niecy is her own woman crush, and she’s inspiring others to love themselves too!
