Millie Bobby Brown got super real about the importance of self-love and kindness, and we couldn’t agree more
If Millie Bobby Brown wasn’t already at the top of your list of favorite celebs, this should help her skyrocket to number one. The 14-year-old Stranger Things star has always inspired her fans. And on Friday, April 20th, Brown took to Instagram to talk about some of the most important things in life: self-love and kindness.
In a series of videos posted on her Instagram Story, she started off by listing things that some people might consider flaws, like getting pimples and having a short temper at times. Then, she went on to preach the importance of self-acceptance. Because in the grand scheme of things, that will allow you to love others more too.
Brown also championed the hashtag #embraceyourface, which her Stranger Things co-star Caleb McLaughlin started. What is it about the kids on Stranger Things that makes them outrageously amazing? Sometimes it seems like they’re from a version of the upside down that makes everyone wise beyond their years.
As amazing as Millie Bobby Brown is, more than anything, she accepts that she isn’t perfect.
"I'm human. I'm a teenager. I make mistakes. I get pimples. I get irritated by small things. I get hurt. I have emotions. I have feelings," Brown said. "And if you are happy in your own skin, if you truly love yourself, then you will love other people, and you will be kind to other people. And that's what's important. And that's what's going to get rid of hate. And that's what I stand for."
On a coolness scale from 1-10, Millie Bobby Brown is definitely an 11.
For her to speak up and champion self-love and kindness shows what an amazing young woman the star is becoming.
