Everyone endures ups and downs in their relationships, but some “downs” can be pretty low. And we just heard that supermodel Ashley Graham had boyfriends break up with her for a particularly insane reason.

In an interview with People.com at the Urban Arts Partnership 25th Anniversary event, she spoke about how she can 100% relate to women who feel a sense of shame because of their weight.

She goes on to note that the cycle of body shaming continues no matter how old we get, but she tries her hardest not to let it get the better of her.

“I wake up sometimes and I think ‘I’m the fattest woman alive,’ she admitted. “But it’s really about how you handle it when you wake up. I look in the mirror and I have my affirmations. And mine are simple.” 

We’re listening.

So much yes to this, and so much respect for such a positive attitude. We love that Graham admits that she doesn’t wake up feeling like a million bucks every single day, because it reminds us that self-love is a process, and it’s totally okay if you’re still working on it.

Oh, and remember how Ashley Graham was on the cover of Vogue? Yeah, she’s killing it.

Keep doing your thing and inspiring us to have faith in ourselves, Ashley!
