Like most people that work out at the gym, Jones posted a gym selfie to show off her progress. She captioned the photo with honesty letting her followers know that celebrities have insecurities too.
Ok back to cardio. But confession I feel like I’m doing it for nothing, Jones wrote. I know it not [sic] I’m healthy and look good but I really feel like ‘what’s it all for’ if the people you want to notice don’t. I just feel like I might die alone. Sorry, that’s pretty heavy today!!
After Jones shared her photo, many of her followers praised her for her honesty while encouraging her that she’ll fine love some day. Below are some of the words of affirmations that Jones’ followers posted:
You is kind. You is smart. You is important. And you are worthy, loved, beautiful, and a true light in this dark world. Thank God for women like you! 🙌🏾💫👑

While Jones’ followers reminded her that she was beautiful and talented, Jones reminded her followers that she is human. Leslie posted the caption not necessarily because she lacked self-confidence but because she’s a real person who sometimes has bad days. Despite the fact that Jones hasn’t found the love of her life, she shared that she is loved by a higher power.
Hey!! I want everyone to know I post my real feelings cause I am a real person!! And I know I’m not alone. That being said I’m also 50 years old and know that life is life! And some days we are low! But the good thing is I know I’m loved by God and I’m good!! It’s important to respect your feelings as long as you don’t live there!! God bless!!
