Jelena Dokic, former professional tennis player and author, recently shared a powerful Instagram post addressing body shaming and the judgment she has faced for her changing size and weight.

The caption reads, “Real, raw, open and honest conversation! What is the most common comment I see when it comes to my body, size, and weight? What happened to her? I can barely recognize her. Really? What happened? You can’t recognize me? Let me tell you what happened.Dokic then explains that the image on the left, where she was a size 4, is from a time when she was scared, beaten unconscious, and constantly bullied. She also shares that the “bulge on my shins” is from being kicked all night. In contrast, the image on the right shows her at size 16, where she has survived it all and is healing from her trauma.

Dokic’s message is clear: beauty is not about a certain size or weight. Instead, it’s about having a beautiful heart and soul. She reminds her followers that her struggles have made her who she is today, and she is proud of the progress she has made. “I will take the size 16 over the size 4 any day if it means I am happy,” she writes. “If it means I turned to food to try and survive, then so be it. But I am here, I am happy, and most importantly, I made it through.”

Dokic’s bravery in sharing her story is also a testament to the healing power of vulnerability. By sharing her struggles, she is able to connect with others who may be going through similar experiences and offer them hope and inspiration. Her post is a call to action for all of us to be kinder and more understanding towards ourselves and others, regardless of our appearance.
