Lena Dunham Shares Lingerie Photo Alongside Message About Weighing the ‘Most She Ever Has’
Lena Dunham has never been afraid to speak her mind, and we know the past year has been tough for her. In the last 365 days, the 32-year-old underwent a hysterectomy due to her battle with endometriosis; ended a five-plus year relationship with Jack Antonoff; stopped talking to her close friend Lorde, and split from her production partner Jenni Konner. However, through the trials and tribulations, the actress/writer seems to have been practicing self-reflection, and the result is a happiness she has never felt in her life.
On Tuesday (February 26), Dunham shared a lengthy, personal message on Instagram. "I’ve spent a lot of time in this life feeling like too much. Too hungry. Too anxious. Too loud. Too needy. Too sick. Too dramatic. Too honest. Too sexy (jk lol.)" she wrote alongside a lingerie photo. "I was always sent the message, in insidious ways, that I took up too much room and demanded too much from life and sometimes gave too much to people who didn’t want any at all. But something has changed, and it started when I realized: I don’t have to be *for* everybody, and that for the right people, my too much is just enough."
"My too much also means I have room for their too much and we can take turns too muching all over each other," she continued. "At 32: I weigh the most I ever have. I love the most I ever have. I read and write and laugh the most I ever have. And I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. Not the frail, precarious happiness of 'things are going perfectly.' The big, generous, jiggly happiness of “I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of this.” Not too much... Just enough."
