Lauren Young has an important reminder to everyone: "Be kinder to yourself." 

In a recent Instagram post, Lauren shared a throwback pic of herself at the gym and opened up about the body image issues she had in the past: "9 years ago, I would look in the mirror and be so unsatisfied and unkind to [myself]," she wrote.

Since then, the actress has come a long way in terms of loving her body. In the same post, Lauren also shared current photos of herself: "Today, all I see is someone who survived, who powered through bad eating habits, self-loathing, and beating up my body every day to fit into the standards that I thought I had to meet."

"We are all different—different faces and different bodies yet we come together with kindness and love," she continued. "So don’t forget to show yourself some love and kindness today and to those around you, because no matter how perfect someone's life seems, you don’t actually know who needs it."

This isn't the first time Lauren talked about her journey to body love. In 2019, she uploaded a vlog titled "Bakit Ako Tumaba? Debt, Self-Love, And Family Issues," where she shared how she struggled with weight gain and debt and how she bounced back by caring for herself more and making changes in her lifestyle.
