Dolly Singh Pens A Heart-Wrenching Note On Facing Body Shaming, Shares 'My Home Isn't My Safe Space'

Dolly Singh is counted among the most popular social media influencers. With an impressive fan following of more than 1.6 million on Instagram, Dolly loves to keep her fans updated with the deets of her personal life. From being a content creator to making comic sketches of ‘Raju Ki Mummy’ and making her acting debut with the film, Thank You For Coming, she has come a long way.

Dolly Singh opens up about being insecure about her body weight

There is no denying that Dolly Singh has always been vocal about feeling insecure about her body and despising her skinny self. On May 15, 2024, the social media influencer took to her IG handle and shared a moving note with the caption, "I hope I am someone’s safe space". In her picture note, Dolly opened up about her experience of being skinny and always worrying about her fluctuating weight. She wrote: 

"Like most people, my weight fluctuates too. Being on the naturally Skinny side of the spectrum, I tend to lose weight easily (when I don't want to), and it's hard to put it back on. Last few months of finishing up the house, adulting and stressing took away the few good kgs I had gained over the last few years. Honestly, this time I wasn't worried about it. I know that if 1 get back on my routine, workout, eat on time and with intention, I'll slowly get there. There is no hurry."

Despite so much negativity, Dolly prefers to look on the bright side and loves her body in every state. The influencer feels proud of her body now, as she had grown up despising every bit of it. She added that she has accepted the shapeshift every now and then, and now she only goes to see people who are not her safe space. In her words:

"I love my body now. I love my body in every state because it supports me. I have come to believe that and honestly, I feel proud about that. I have grown up despising my body, hating every bit of it, so growth. But as much as I have accepted it to shapeshift every now and then, people around me don't. And the other day, as I was about to go see someone, I decided against it because I realised they are not my safe space."

Dolly Singh on experiencing body shaming

Dolly highlighted how people keep on commenting on her weight and body type to make her believe that she is not taking care of herself. She mentioned that though the negative comments don't bother her now, her 13-year-old self would have been extremely hurt by such bad criticism. In her words:

"That I'm sure they'll have something to say about my weight. About my lost glow or whatever term they'd wanna use to make me believe it's out of care (maybe it is, but keep it to yourself unless asked). It doesn't hurt the 3o year old me, but the 13 year old? It takes me back to the bad days sometimes."

Dolly Singh talks about her safe space

Further in her note, Dolly penned that she has realised that there are a few places and people in her life where she can go the way she wants to and she will still receive love. However, she mentioned that people should try to be someone's safe space and make them feel comfortable, without caring about the kgs fluctuating on the weighing scale. She concluded:

"Anyway, the point is, I realised that there are only a few people and places in my life where I can go however I want to, it doesn't matter what I look like, what I am wearing, or what my weighing scale says, I will receive love. My home is still not one. Maybe someday. If you could do something today, try to be someone's safe space. And count your own blessings of people in your life who don't care about the kgs fluctuating but the smiles on your face."

We wish more strength to Dolly Singh!
