This woman posted a viral video on TikTok saying she physically peaked in high school
Gabrielle McDonald, who posted the viral video on TikTok challenging
everyone to share their glow-down snaps, and she shared how she came up with the idea. After watching so many TikToks on her “for you” page about people “glowing up,” Gabrielle got seriously fed up.
“It was annoying me that I couldn’t participate in that challenge, so I made one I could participate in,” she laughed. On a more serious note, Gabrielle said that she feels like “it sets an unrealistic goal for most people as we all don’t get to have drastic ‘glow-ups.'”
“Sure, something like weight loss or leaving a toxic relationship is a huge glow-up that I support. But people who just hit puberty and/or put a bunch of makeup on and call it a ‘glow-up’ gives off a vibe I’m not okay with,” she said. The woman urges everyone to think of people who are suffering with being insecure about who they are, as the glow-up TikToks may set a pretty bad example to them.
And she challenged everyone to share their glow-down snaps too
Gabrielle, who didn’t expect her challenge to go as viral as it did, said it was all spur-of-the-moment and that she didn’t expect anything to come of it.
At this point, she hopes that what people would take away from the glow-down challenge is the realization that “it’s completely normal to not look how you might have done a while back. It’s okay to feel confident in the way you look now and not dwell on how you used to be.”
“We should love ourselves just the way we are and not try to set unrealistic goals for ourselves,” she concluded.
