This woman wrote a love letter to her butt, and it’s fantastic

Fitness trainer Victoria Dariano took the one thing she hated about how she looked, and turned it into a really empowering experience. She wrote a letter to her butt, and it’s something we all need to hear.

Dariano has been fretting over this seemingly inconspicuous aspect of her booty since she was 15. Her letter is an opportunity to offer herself some acceptance, and show others how to be okay with their bodies.

You might think anyone who spends as much time with fitness as Dariano wouldn’t have any body insecurities, but that’s so wrong.

She starts, "Dear Butt Dimple, I remember the first day you appeared. I was 15 years old. Since then you have had a hugely negative impact on my life. Since then you have made me feel less about myself."

Although it might not seem like such a big deal to us, Adriano felt really embarrassed about how she looked in certain clothes.

She went on to say that she didn't, "feel confident in a bikini because I thought everyone was staring at you. I would never wear my favorite leggings because again I always thought people were starting [sic] at you.

According to Adriano, no matter how much she exercised or changed her diet, the dimple remained, and it made her feel less than. Her letter is a way of taking back her joy and learning to love what she sees in the mirror.

As a fitness expert and health blogger, Adriano is familiar with the pressure women face to look a certain way. Her letter is a way to reclaim the power over her own body.

She closes her letter with an important message to what she always considered a flaw:

"You will no longer make me feel unworthy, not good enough or not in shape because of you. I will no longer be afraid to wear certain bathing suits or leggings because of you. I will no longer hide you. You are what you are and I have finally come to peace with that. I have finally accepted you."

This is a keen lesson about how women see and speak about their own bodies. We can learn a lesson from Adriano’s butt dimple, and just learn to love ourselves enough to cut our bodies a break.
