Every woman has a story that inspires several other women. International Women’s Day is just a day dedicated to these stories. The special day is just a reminder that women have been oppressed everywhere in the world since ages and yet they continued to sparkle. Actress Vidya Balan has taken to Instagram to speak her mind about who women really are. She has written a lovely post asking women to just be, without any inhibition and without any unnecessary pressure of being the ‘best version’ of themselves. Her post says that each woman, wherever she is today, is already the best version of herself and therefore, it’s unfair to not love yourself while attempting to strive for better, which is a never-ending process.

Here’s what she has written, “#HappyWomensDay to me and to you …and to us all 💐! #ItsTime to #EmbraceYourself 🤗 …. starting today if you’ve never done it before…
#ItsTime to love yourself body,mind & soul.. just the way you are!
Lets Not wait to become thinner or fairer or smarter or hotter or cooler or richer or more successful or anything that you are not already…before you can #LOVE yourself.
#ItsTime to say goodbye to every judgement that makes you feel lesser and
#ItsTime to say #YouCanLeaveNow to the inner critic who says #ImAmNotGoodEnough .
#ItsTime to know that there’s no need to become the best version of yourself.You are the best you can be today…and 2mrw is another day…so you will be the best you can be 2mrw too.Best Not in comparison to anyone else.Just #TheBestYou…cuz how can there be a Best in a world of individuals !?? 🌟.
