There’s an old saying that goes “self-love is the best love.” The motto was originally coined to encourage people to take care of their mental and physical health even when they felt like their lives were going up in flames. Many people have been finding new things that bring them happiness amid the pandemic, but individuals like Malaysia Pargo are sharing the ways they have fallen in love with themselves during their shelter-in-place lives.
Pargo posted an up-close photo of herself to Instagram on Wednesday, April 15. Pargo, a reality star from “Basketball Wives,” tilted her head to one side to strike her pose. She wore her hair in a half-up, half-down braided hairstyle, and the mother of three appeared to be relaxing in her home. Pargo’s lights were not turned on, but her skin was shining bright.
Pargo expressed in her caption just how much she adored herself. “The look you make when your in Love With Yourself,” she wrote. The Compton, California, native used the hashtags #selflove #stayathome to encourage people to stay in the house. Fans complimented Pargo for her inspirational message in addition to her glowing selfie.
“Stunning and inspiring,” one user wrote.
“Those eyes though😍,” a second fan gushed.
A third user commented, “That’s that Leo sh-t…carry on💁🏾♀️❤️😂.”
“The greatest love ❤️,” a fourth fan agreed.
“You cute or whatever 🖤,” a fifth user said.
A sixth fan admitted, “I’m really trying to get there.”
“True that 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥,” wrote a seventh.
“Love that you are loving on yourself during this time. I’m over here looking crazy😂,” an eighth said.
People have always been a fan of Pargo’s striking looks since she joined the cast of “BBW” in 2011. Pargo, 39, has always embraced herself on social media. She shared an image of herself a few years ago sporting her natural tresses without a face full of makeup. The social media influencer received positive feedback on her authentic selife, and she encouraged people to love their flaws in the comments.
