In un updated caption to a photo she shared on Instagram, the country singer and former “One Tree Hill” star wrote: “A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this. I wanted to post this photo (showing my stomach) because I wanted to show my journey back to healthy and my goodness I’m so glad I didn’t which is why this photo is now cropped. It’s amazing the comments and how rude some people can be from my last photo I took yesterday.”

“A few things,” she added, “no I didn’t get a tummy tuck, no I don’t have a personal chef, no I don’t have fortunes so I didn’t train everyday. Yes I had a c section, yes I am still in pain and on meds but I do have a high pain tolerance. I have had 3 stomach surgeries before this (appendix, gallbladder, and c section).. In that photo I had on a belly bandit wrapped tightly, and high waisted pants and wow here I am defending myself. Why?!?”

She then explained why did didn’t post a photo of her bare stomach. “If I would have posted the photo of my actual stomach in this photo I would have probably been shamed too even when I was wanting to be vulnerable with my journey,” she wrote. “Why do we women have to compare ourselves to each other and then shame? I say this to myself as much as I say this to y’all … why can’t it be that we are all different. Our bodies are all beautiful and crafted differently, they heal different, they react different, they simply look different.”

She concluded by writing, “Why do we need to shame someone for not looking a certain way? Or feel bad about ourselves for not looking a certain way? Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every women [sic] has a different journey but yet we are all beautiful? Can we lift women up but not tear yourself down in the process of comparing? Let’s give that a try…..I love y’all. Back to my baby.”
