Our hearts are crumbling for fitness blogger and model, Chontel Duncan.
Despite the new mum having a fierce following of 575,000 on Instagram, she has made a desperate plea to her fans to remember she is only human.
Backlash against Duncan started when she posted this photo showing the difference between her and another pregnant mother.
Since giving birth, the young mum has faced online torment regarding her parenting style, ongoing workouts, and unrealistic expectations she is facing for other parents.
But, as she writes in her post, she’s also facing her own set of expectations.
Sometimes people forgot that I am human…. That I have paths that I won’t cross…. Things I don’t feel comfortable sharing….. That I have a personality which makes me different an unique…. That I read EVERY comment, private message & email… That I am just one person & not super women…. Sometimes I feel like there’s these crazy expectations but I am just one person & I feel like people forget that #NOHATE #GOODVIBES #FEELINGMEH #WISHPEOPLEWEREMOREUNDERSTANDING
