Actor Parineeti Chopra, just shared her struggles with the way she looked and how she became an 'inspiration' to many mums and girls

Actor Parineeti Chopra, just posted a powerful message on her Instagram page about her struggles with the way she looked, before her recent transformation. But what makes this post inspiring is her amazing strength and ability to look at her struggles and failures as opportunities.

It's a message that every woman must read.

She writes, "All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them. Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the "bollywood pressure"? To that I say - thank god I became an actor and had that pressure! I am able to achieve what I couldn't achieve otherwise. I feel more confident, I feel at peace, and I feel proud!"

She continues to speak about women who come up to her and call her their 'inspiration!'

"Girls and women meet me all around the world, at airports, events, on the street; they hold my hand, hug me, and tell me their struggles and how I changed their lives. They show me their wallpapers, their wallets, and its all pictures of me!! They look at those pictures and want to make that change in their own lives. They look at my Built That Way campaign and have stuck it to their walls. I have seen women tear up and tell me I changed their life. Post delivery weight, teenage obesity, they are fighting it, and I am their inspiration," she writes.

"As an actor, There is no bigger achievement for me. I am glad to be a part of your life in this way. So thank you everyone. Thank You for making me feel loved. Like I always say - if I could do it. So can you. And I am always there for all of you .... Lots of love....," says Chopra.
