Stranger Things star Shannon Purser (20) is finally satisfied with her own body. The twenty-year-old actress, who plays Barb in the popular Netflix series, struggled with it for years.
“Please never make any comments about my weight and do not tell me that I look good or bad”, Shannon starts on Twitter. She is currently satisfied with her appearance. “I look good now. I’m happy. I do not need anyone to approve my body. ”
LASTLY, my war with my body started at age 11 and soon all I wanted was to be thin. I’ve struggled with that insecurity almost every day since. I still have bad days, but I’m much better now. I hope one day we’ll learn to be kind to our bodies and teach our kids to do the same.
