Lately, I have been getting a lot of attention regarding my ass.
I have been asked “do you ever squat?”
I have been told “you really have no ass.”
I even got a “I consider you a 9, but you’d be a 10 if you just had cakes!”
Let’s just take a moment to talk about why it’s okay to not have cakes. And how after 21 years, I am well aware of my body and I am more than okay with who I am.
1. I still have an ass.
Yes, It may not fill out my jeans all the way, and I may not be able to win a twerking contest, but I promise it’s still there and does a fine job with what it’s anatomically intended to do.
2. I am more than my ass.
So a big ole’ booty wasn’t in my genes. SO WHAT? SO WHAT, SO WHAT, SO WHAT?!
I’d rather have someone know me for who I truly am, and not for the junk in my trunk.
An ass DOES NOT define a person.
Let me say that again,
AN ASS DOES NOT DEFINE WHO YOU ARE AS A PERSON.
Never has anyone said: “You need a fat ass in order to be happy in life. You need a fat ass to be successful. You need a fat ass to be a good person.”
I am a hard worker.
I am kind and loving.
I have amazing relationships in my life.
I have a kick ass personality.
I am athletic.
I am intelligent.
And because of all these things:
I am beautiful from the inside out.
3. I don’t need you to express your opinion of my body.
I love my body.
I love the way my thighs look in skinny jeans.
I love my feet in strappy sandals.
I love how my hair naturally curls and falls around my face.
I love the birthmark below my lower lip.
I even love the size of my boobs.
I love that my eyelashes bring out my dark brown eyes.
I love that the people who love and care about me, love me for who I am on the inside, not from the behind.
My ass will not be the first thing you notice and I don’t need your approval. I definitely don’t want to associate myself with someone who puts such an emphasis on MY body.
Even if I had some nice cakes, that isn’t what I would want you to notice, because that does not matter.
Instead, notice my awkward too-wide smile, my contagious laugh, or my kind nature.
I have learned to accept and love my body, because I am made in His image.
So do me a favor, and get your nosey, judgmental, and shallow ass out of my life.
