In the caption, he described his experiences of self-love and admitted that he probably never had his shirt off by the pool before he was in his mid-30s!
He went on to tell followers that it likely would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities hadn’t been exacerbated by years of public ridicule of my body by the press and interviewers. The idea that the media is trying to play me by following me surfing the web and taking pictures like that and it can’t phase me anymore is so stupid. I’m 37 and I finally love and accept myself. This is not a “good for me” post. And it’s definitely not a “feeling bad for me” post. It’s for kids who don’t take off shirts by the pool Have fun. You are wonderful and great and perfect. All my love. ‘
Following his inspirational post, Jonah received tremendous love and support from fans who appreciated the message, as well as from some of his famous friends such as Kelly Slater, Johnny Knoxville, and Andy Cohen, to name a few.
