Even though Becca Kufrin knows how to throw some shade at her ex when the moment is right, she’s known for being a good, kind person.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about some very vocal Instagram trolls who harass public figures every single day.
In a new, heartfelt post, Becca pleads with them all to be kinder and less cruel.
"You don’t need me to remind you, but life can be rocky," Becca’s post begins. "People can be harsh."
"In our current climate, the internet can often times be the biggest weapon against our soul," she characterizes.
Becca observes: "Social media has taken over and will only keep growing."
"Because of that, so will our insecurities, jealousie,s and hurdles we face as women," she predicts.
Becca writes: "And it’s the unfortunate truth that social media is linked to a significant increase in anxiety, depression, suicide, and body image issues."
"For two years I’ve been thrust into the public eye on a scale that I never imagined possible," she points out.
"Yes, this was my doing by entering reality TV," Becca acknowledges.
She adds: "But nothing could prepare me for the amount of constant commentary and opinions being thrown at me."
"This feedback not only includes criticism on my love life," Becca details. "But on how I look, speak, dress, and apply (or don’t apply) my makeup."
"And, at times it’s downright hindering," she admits. "I’ve had days where I didn’t want to leave bed because of the anxiety I felt on a social scale."
"And I’m not alone," Becca observes. "I’ve had countless conversations with others."
She has spoken to people "who have felt inadequate because of someone with mean, type-happy fingers."
"Many of us feel like we are drowning," Becca laments. "Because we have to live up to some unattainable social goal."
"Let’s change this," she suggests. "Let’s all take a step back and maybe NOT type a rude comment."
Becca continues: "or hit “send” with demeaning words into someone’s DMs."
"Who are we to judge another person by the makeup she puts on, how white our teeth are, or if we forgot to wash our hair for six days straight?" she asks.
"As women, we need to do a better job of building ALL humans up," Becca proclaims.
She continues: "Of using our voices to support one another no matter our education level, ethnicity, background, etc."
"Let’s focus on the positives of individuals and spread care," Becca recommends.
"Because if not," she warns. "The pressures of being perfect, and anxieties when we aren’t, will only consume us."
"A gentle reminder that Instagram is not reality," Becca emphasizes. "It does not define who we are to our core."
"It can only give a MINOR glimpse into our daily lives," she reminds followers.
"But what is said through social media can leave a lasting impact," Becca states. "So spread a little kindness."
She concludes: "Tell a stranger how contagious her smile is in a recent photo, double tap a compliment, and remember to go easy on others and yourself."
This sounds like great advice for countless Instagram trolls and also for Garrett Yrigoyen.
