Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall has been applauded by fans for sharing an inspiring post about ‘self-loathing’ oneself.

The singer took to Instagram to share a quotation on a black background, which spoke of how someone can learn to love themselves after experiencing periods of feeling insecure.

‘Insecurity is unattractive,’ the post read. ‘Yet my mind keeps trying to act ugly. Using self terroristic tactics.

‘Til I self implode, I’m my own worst enemy. But I wasn’t the first, I’ve realised the self loathing isn’t self taught, but rather drilled into me.

‘Be an army of insecure adults projecting onto a child, conditioned to be a patient of patriarchal society. And it takes more than an Insta quote or an occasional affirmation to unpick being picked apart.’

Jade concluded the post by saying: ‘F*****g hell, isn’t loving yourself really an art?’

Fans later thanked the 27-year-old for sharing such wise words, with one commenting: ‘Jade I love you so so so much, thank you for always being the best idol to me that I could ever ask for.’

It comes after Jade had previously opened up about the racism she experienced during her childhood due to her mixed-race heritage, while also revealing she kept her background a secret when she joined Little Mix out of fear of being less ‘popular’.

Speaking on the BBC Sounds No Country For Young Women podcast, she revealed: ‘I think because I was bullied quite badly in school because of the colour of my skin and for being Arab, I wasn’t very proud of who I was.

‘I think when I then entered the group I subconsciously didn’t want to talk about my heritage or what my background was in fear of not being as popular, which sounds awful to say but I was only 18 years old and through years of being ashamed of who I was I found it quite hard to talk about it.

‘I think it was through a lack of education as well. Even now I am constantly learning what the right things are to say and I would hate to talk about my race and my heritage and not say the right things.’
