Kylie Jenner is no stranger to taking a great well-lit picture of herself, but perhaps none carry quite as much weight as her newest. 

In a new Instagram photo snapped on set, Jenner—clad only in slippers and a white terry cloth robe—showed off her left leg, with particular attention paid to a long scar down her thigh. Captioned "I love my scar," it was a statement in and of itself—and a reminder that celebrities are people too. (In a 2011 interview with Celebuzz, Jenner revealed that she got the scar after hurting herself during a game of hide-and-seek with Kendall when they were kids.)

Scrolling through the comments on the image, the responses range from body-positive praise to straight up bullying. (The latter of which is an issue so close to Jenner's heart she even started her own anti-bullying campaign #IAmMoreThan.)

Being the social media savant she is, Jenner has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly from her 44.5 million followers and could've easily foreseen backlash from trolls. The fact that she uploaded her scar tissue anyway? Admirable. Below, find the most *inspiring* comments:
