7 Things You Need To Stop Thinking About Your Butt

It’s always time for more body positivity, don’t ya think? That’s why I’m bringing you another body positive post today. One of the first things about being positive is to stop thinking negative. When we’re in the habit of doing it, sometimes we don’t even realize that we’re being negative. Which is why we need to make a more conscious effort to notice when we’re doing it.

I’ve previously talked about the negative things we need to stop thinking about our vaginas, body hair, skin and boobs. Today, I’m going to be talking about butts. Everyone has a butt, but they all come in different shapes and sizes, which is why people can sometimes feel self-conscious about their backsides. It’s time to stop it. Think body positive thoughts and have a look at seven things you need to stop thinking about your butt.

That Your Butt Is The Wrong Size

If you have a small butt, you might wish it was bigger. And if you have a larger bum, you probably wish you had a smaller one. It always seems like we want what everyone else has. No matter the size of your butt, you should love it. If it helps you feel more confident, think there is someone out there who wishes they had a booty just like you.

That You Need To Change Your Butt

You do not need to change any part of your butt. I repeat: You do not need to change any part of your butt. What you were gifted with is amazing. I know that you might not think that sometimes, but try to remember it. You have a unique butt, and you should own it. No one else has your exact butt shape, size, and curve so you might as well embrace it.

That You Need To Bleach Your Butthole

I could probably write an entire post just on negative things you need to stop thinking about your butthole. I'm going to start off by saying that your butthole is perfectly fine in its natural state. You do not need to bleach it no matter what color it is. Don't let porn, other people, the internet, or anyone else tell you otherwise. Bleach is a crazy, harsh product and your tender backside deserves far better than it.

That You Should Be Embarrassed About Your Lumps Or Bumps

Cellulite is waaaaaay more common than you think it is. Don't let all the airbrushed and filtered photos fool you because approximately 80 to 90 percent of adult women have it. Really. It doesn't matter your shape or size, you can get it. And there's no shame in it. Same with stretchmarks. Skin has marks and differences. That's skin. It's only in virtual reality where skin is a single color with no marks.

That You Have To Remove The Hair On It

For the most part, the current body hair aesthetic seems to be completely hairless. That is changing because people are realizing that body hair is a natural thing and humans are not supposed to be hairless like Barbies. No one should ever make you think that you need to be hairless to be considered attractive. Having hair isn't a turnoff, gross, or unsanitary. It's natural. If you do want to shave or wax back there, you have a right, but the key thing is that you're doing it because you want to.

That Guys Won't Find Your Butt Attractive

Girl, I can guarantee that there will be a lot of people who will find you 100 percent gorgeous. And I'm including your backside in that. Before you ask, I know they will find it hot AF clothes, not clothed, and in every other possible manner.

That You Cannot Wear A Certain Clothing Style Because Of Your Butt

If you're listening to restrictive fashion rules that are telling you that you cannot wear a certain clothing style because of your body parts, I want you to ignore them. Fashion is about having fun and wearing what you love. If you like a look and you feel confident in it, you should wear it. I also don't want you to think that you cannot wear something because of your bum or any body part. Don't put those restrictions on yourself.
