Daisy Ridley is speaking out about body positivity again — and we LOVES it!!

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star continued to keep it real with her fans on Monday when she penned an encouraging message about the realities of social media.

The 24-year-old beauty said that a lot of people (including herself) tend to only show their shining moments online, and we shouldn't judge ourselves based on other people's profiles.

It's not always what it seems, Perezcious readers!

The actress explained the importance of positive self-esteem next to an obviously-filtered photo (above), saying:

"3 of these statements aren't true… Social media is great but also a bit scary cause what people post is the most filtered, most carefully chosen and cleverly edited moments of their lives. And self esteem is a huge issue for people around the world. My skin isn't great so I don't post no make up selfies, much as I'd like to; I have a trainer urging me on in workouts and don't include all the times I say 'I can't do it' and I don't smile all the time but I like to share the pictures where I am. But I actually do love myself, I try to think good thoughts always and am surrounded by the most wonderful people, so I'm keeping it balanced (like the Force, obvs). Just thought I'd say :)"

Preach, sister!

We appreciate Miz Ridley's mission to be honest with her followers. Her confidence is contagious!!!
