It's not easy to nurture your mental health while in quarantine, without access to many of your usual self-care mechanisms, as Lizzo just pointed out on Instagram (opens in new tab). Posting a gorgeous clip of herself posing in a black lace teddy (truly, who on this earth is hotter than Lizzo?), she shared a vital message with her followers about recognizing and resisting self-hatred.
"focus on a body part u don’t like about yourself and show it some love today," she wrote. "This quarantine has a lot of people suffering from mental health issues because we can’t get out and do our normal coping/self care routines.... self hatred was starting to creep up on me but I gotta remember I’m 110% that bitch."

And I take it seriously because when I was younger, I wanted to change everything about myself," she said. “I didn’t love who I was. And the reason I didn’t love who I was is because I was told I wasn’t lovable by the media, by [people at] school, by not seeing myself in beauty ads, by not seeing myself in television...by lack of representation."
"My self-hatred got so bad that I was fantasizing about being other people," she continued. "But you can’t live your life trying to be somebody else. What’s the point?"
