Feeling yourself means something different to everyone.
For some -- not me, but someone, probably -- it's the moment of supreme confidence that occurs every time they pretend to be really bad at ping-pong and then wipe the floor with a date who tells them they're "actually pretty good at this." I assume.
For others, like Ariel Winter, it's as simple as posting a sexy selfie with some Nicki Minaj lyrics.
The "Modern Family" star shared a picture of herself in a plunging black leotard and the honest-to-goodness comfiest looking sweats with followers Tuesday night.
Ariel, a longtime fan of selfies and self-love, got plenty of praise in the comments section of her latest post, though strangers' approval isn't what she's seeking.
In October, she told Elite Daily,
Now I post a photo and I don't care. If you're going to write something on it, whatever… If somebody doesn't like what I'm doing, you can unfollow me.
Instead of taking the troll bait and fighting back on social media, Ariel chalks insane criticism up to something beyond her selfies.
When you see people's negative comments on your Instagram or your Twitter or whatever, you gotta think there's something not going well in their lives to make them need to post this. So it's never good to write back something negative. Writing back something positive and beautiful... is what's more empowering for you.
The 18-year-old also made her first red carpet appearance with boyfriend Levi Meaden at an event for the Trevor Project in LA December 5.
She stayed tight-lipped about the relationship when speaking to interviewers, but did mention the pair shared "a great [Thanksgiving] holiday."
GOOD, Ariel. You freaking deserve it.
