In a lengthy post she put out on Instagram, the 'Girls' creator claims that she is the happiest she has ever been at 32 after learning to accept that her 'too much' is 'just enough.'

AceShowbiz - Actress Lena Dunham has stripped down to her underwear to send a powerful message about self-acceptance.

The "Girls" creator and star took to Instagram late on Tuesday, February 26 to post a photo of herself showing off her tattooed body as she lay sprawled across her bed, wearing a bra and briefs set from Lonely Lingerie.

In the lengthy caption, Lena revealed she had spent "too much" of her life worrying about the comments people made about her and her antics, both on and offscreen.

"I've spent a lot of time in this life feeling like too much," she began. "Too hungry. Too anxious. Too loud. Too needy. Too sick. Too dramatic. Too honest. Too sexy (jk lol.) (joking laugh out loud)."

Addressing the frequent criticism she would receive in the press for oversharing, she continued, "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."

However, after learning to fully love herself, she no longer cares about the public's opinion.

"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," she wrote. "My too much also means I have room for their too much and we can take turns too muching (sic) all over each other."

Lena goes on to explain that she has made peace with what some may consider her flaws, because for once, she's found happiness in all aspects of her life.

"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," she concludes. "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."

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.) 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. 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.

Lena's candid post comes after two years of personal struggles - in late 2017, she had her uterus removed to treat her endometriosis, which had caused her immense pain, and in early 2018, the actress split from her musician boyfriend Jack Antonoff after dating for more than five years.

In October (2018), she also revealed she was six months sober after "misusing" anti-anxiety drug Klonopin.
