Sarah Lahbati has made peace with herself about her body flaws, particularly her stretch marks.
On her social media post on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, the 28-year-old celebrity mom bared her "stripes" in a photo taken by her husband Richard Gutierrez that she uploaded,
Sarah shared in the caption her realization about acceptance, flaws and all.
The StarSTruck V Ultimate Female Survivor wrote, "I’m tired of hiding my stretch-marks. I’m not perfect. No one is.
"What’s funny is it took me awhile to accept that. My biggest insecurity. To love me fully. To fully accept me.
"I’ve always been ready to give all of me for my loved ones but never poured that same cup to myself. Took me some time to realize that my stretch marks are my best tattoos.
"A reminder that I am a strong and resilient woman whose been through a lot but most importantly, I’ve given birth to my two dearest sons, Zion and Kai. My angels.
"I am loved, understood & cherished by my husband. I couldn’t ask for anything more."
With her new self-love mantra, Sarah has taken it upon herself to help the women among her followers who may be feeling insecure about their physical imperfections.
She wrote, "This may sound dumb to you, but I just wanna let you know that you are enough and beautiful.
"I’m grateful to be alive, to be loved, messy, and to be fully myself.
"Wouldn’t have it any other way. Took awhile for me to get here. But here I am. Proud. Cheers to all of you, women."
Toward the end of her post, Sarah thanked two of her ever supportive friends, fashion designers Boom Sason and Mark Bumgarner.
"To my dear friend, @boomsason, for being the best 'girl’s girl,' an amazing designer and the most loyal friend. You’re like a sister to me, I love you and thank you for all the beautiful memories & creations.
"@markbumgarner & @inkheartearl, i love you and you know that. Grateful for you my loves."
