Hilaria Baldwin posted several lengthy messages to Instagram about her children's future after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump.

The first of these posts was a heartfelt open letter to her 3-year-old daughter, Carmen, that encouraged her to never let "anyone belittle you for your gender."

"We are strong women and worth every bit as much as any man. We are not things to be owned or objectified," Hilaria wrote. "There is nothing wrong with feeling beautiful -- just understand that true beauty is transmitted from deep inside your soul and shines outward. I worry you might get confused... I worry that you could fall for misogynistic thoughts and statements."

My little woman, my little lady...my princess, my smart, brilliant, bright future. Never listen to anyone belittle you for your gender. We are strong women and worth every bit as much as any man. We are not things to be owned or objectified. There is nothing wrong with feeling beautiful--just understand that true beauty is transmitted from deep inside your soul and shines outward. I worry you might get confused...I worry that you could fall for misogynistic thoughts and statements. Because there seems to be so many flying around these days--in such high places of power. You are too good for this. We all are. Every woman is. Feeling sexy, attractive, special, and wanted is only meaningful if it comes from the right person. You don't need that attention from anyone who doesn't respect you wholeheartedly. They have their own lives to lead, their own problems to figure out. And we can only pray that they will find a path of goodness. Don't feel power in their meaningless thoughts and idiotic statements. Sometimes this is how some figure out their demons. Those who treat others this way most likely had something terrible happen to them. We must show compassion for their pain, while, at the same time, protect ourselves. Anyone who doesn't treat you with the utmost respect is not worth your time. Always be kind, confident. Just nod and walk in the other direction--towards true power, happiness, and grace. Waste no energy. Own your amazingness...stick together with those who see you and treat you brilliantly. So you can do the same for them #karma #love #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm

She went on to share a pic of her kissing her famous husband, Alec Baldwin, and revealed in the caption that after putting up the note to her daughter, she received several messages from Trump supporters, and welcomed them to "PEACEFULLY express who they are in the comments section."

I read & value your comments. I block only if someone is mean--it's simply too exhausting to read hate. Never silence an opinion that is respectfully stated. Having differing opinions is normal, important, and part of our incredible democracy. Looking at the numbers after this election, I think we can all agree that we are incredibly divided. And this is our greatest problem. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness should be for all...not just a drop over half...whether that be during Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump...or any other administration. Whether in the happy camp or unhappy camp, I have learned over the past week that this great divide should make us all unhappy. If we are truly united, we should value everyone's wellbeing and joy. We are never going to agree all the time, but at least we can try respectfully. We need to be the "United People of America" not just the "United States of America". The only way I think this can get better is through improved communication and getting to know each other better. I have received many comments from Trump supporters about how "liberals should get to know us". You know what? They are right. I want to get to know them, I want to get to know you. So we are not a "them" & an "us", but we result in a strong, united "WE". I realize that due to my instagram following, I have a voice that some others don't have. I want to dedicate this post to giving these people a voice to PEACEFULLY express who they are in the comments section. Who are you? And what do you need? What do you value? What do you want to see from this next administration? Where have you not be heard and taken care of? We need to be all in this together. We are all made of the same flesh and blood. We are not opposing sports teams & this is not about winning and losing....we are citizens of the same country. In my previous posts I have expressed concern. I'm allowed to feel and have concerns. I'm a mother, a citizen, a human being. But I want to hear from you too-because I don't matter more than you. No one does. So please: I dedicate here to you so you can be heard and valued. Kindness is the one rule-whether you are on the right or the left

Despite her best efforts, Hilaria noted in another Instagram message that she was still receiving negative comments and called out one Instagram user who said if she felt the need to move out of America, "don't let the wall gates hit you in the a** on the way out."

"Let's just be friends and try to move on," she responded.

😱 let's just be friends and try to move on ❤️🇺🇸❤️

Hilaria then went back to doting on her three children -- Carmen, Rafael, 1, and Leonardo, 2 months -- by showing how similar they look as newborns. "Funny how I get so tired and sometimes can't wait for them to be sleeping then I just start staring at photos," the proud mother wrote. "So, here they are all as bitty babies--more or less the same age."

So here I am: the tech version of mommy scrap booking 😂. Just drove back to reality from the weekend and my baby troop is all finally sleeping. Funny how I get so tired and sometimes can't wait for them to be sleeping then I just start staring at photos. So here they are all as bitty babies--more or less the same age 😍😍😍. Then I started thinking about bullying. Thinking about it because people can be quite cruel in their comments and from what I've been reading in the news we are going through a bad place-both right and left. Bullying is something that unfortunately seems to touch us all and has been ever present in this election .Big deal bc the people high up set the tone of what is culturally acceptable. So I would like to share how I cope when someone bullies me: I start by reminding myself that we were all once little babies. It unites us to remember that we all go through more or less the same physical journey-just some of us get stuck in name calling, rage, obsession with differences, and superiority complexes (which are usually just a facade for quite the opposite). Unfortunately common, yet never ok. It is never ok to mistreat someone else or encourage that others do this too. It simply spreads stress-this is abusive. In my book, I talk about 5 principles that I use daily to cope with stress: perspective, breathing, grounding, balance, and letting go. Here's an example: someone writes me something mean on insta. My 1st reaction: sad/mad/blood boiling/come up with perfect retort-not so Michelle Obama-y because that makes me go LOW. If i react like this, i feel badly later. It's not my business to spread hate. Not my purpose. So going high: I take a step back and put that meanness in the context of my life (perspective). This makes it seem small and fleeting. Also this gives me the ability to see the other's humanity. I breathe deeply to calm. I feel my feet in the ground to bring myself into the present moment. I balance myself to find stability-because too often negativity feels like it knocks us over. Then I let the stress go. Not worth it. It's not mine to hold. And I move on towards a better future for my babes #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm

Her post soon turned into a message about bullying, and how she copes with the negative feedback she receives from some of her followers. "Bullying is something that unfortunately seems to touch us all and has been ever present in this election," Hilaria continued. "I take a step back and put that meanness in the context of my life (perspective). This makes it seem small and fleeting. Also this gives me the ability to see the other's humanity."

The 32-year-old yoga instructor added, "I balance myself to find stability, because too often negativity feels like it knocks us over. Then I let the stress go. Not worth it. It's not mine to hold. And I move on towards a better future for my babes."

During the election, Hilaria's husband portrayed Trump in a series of sketches on Saturday Night Live, but when talking with the Today show, she said that the 58-year-old actor's impersonation was not welcome in their home. "We don't practice Trump at home, right honey?" she yelled to Alec during the interview. "We leave Trump at SNL."
