Moving my hair and not thinking about the “perfect” angle. Standing straight (with a bad case of lordosis) Posing. I took a little break from posting these types of photos because I was afraid it would upset people, afraid to upset different communities. The truth of the matter is that I don’t need to belong to one community or another I can simply be me and just share my journey. Some won’t agree, and I am learning that this is okay. I am sharing my story, MINE. It doesn’t have to meet someone else’s approval or someone else’s guidelines. It doesn’t need to be placed in one group or another. There doesn’t need to be a standard that you feel you must hold yourself up to. It’s not about one picture looking “bad” or another looking good” it’s about showing beauty in someone being okay with themselves. This is about learning that there doesn’t have to be two sides, no reason to label something different as it is just one. It’s not about proving one point over another…or making a point at all. It’s about being real and not having to choose to show just the “societal accepted parts” but ANY parts you want. Remember. You can be anyone you want to be. You might be pushed in a direction of what you are “supposed to be” but it doesn’t mean you have to follow that direction. You can learn to be comfortable as any person in this world…not because someone told you that you can (because this will never happen) but because you gave YOURSELF permission to be. You will not always be someone’s cup of coffee, but remember you are the one who will spend the rest of your life drinking it. And I’m not sure about you, but I want to wake up every morning enjoying the cup of coffee I drink. #couragetobeyou
“Querido Hoyuelo del Culo, recuerdo el primer día que apareciste. Tenía 15 años”, escribe D’Ariano.
Y continúa: “Desde entonces has tenido un impacto tremendamente negativo en mi vida. Desde entonces me has hecho sentir inferior. No sólo me has hecho sentir gorda, sino además inútil. Siempre has tenido un impacto en la ropa que elegía ponerme”.
A similar post to last week but I am overcoming an insecurity of mine. . 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. You not only made me feel fat, but also unworthy. You have always had an impact on what I chose to wear. I would avoid certain bikinis, and even some of my favorite leggings. I would never 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 at you. Long shirts were my go-to as it was a way I could cover you up and have a moment of peace within my mind as no one would be judging you. I remember endless hours of looking at you in the mirror, squeezing you and wondering why I had you. I remember crying of embarrassment as other girls I was friends with didn’t have you. I would exercise extra hard in hopes you would go away. I would eat better also in hopes you would go away. I even considered cellulite treatments so you would finally just go away. You never did, you still haven’t. You took a lot of joy away from me, you caused a lot of stress for me, you made me insecure and took away my confidence. I could never feel in shape as you were always there. I am writing you today to tell you I have finally stopped letting you win. 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. ✨when I reflect back on this I realize how stupid it is to have let something this superficial have an impact on my life but it did. I am happy that I have been able to overcome this and I hope if you have a similar struggle you can realize that you too can and will. Don’t let things of such insignificance ever take away your happiness. #fuckthedimple #freethebooty #couragetobeyou ❤️

D’Ariano, que ahora tiene 24 años, cuenta que siempre evitó ponerse bikinis y ciertos leggings, con el fin de no tener que preocuparse demasiado por el hoyuelo. También habla del estrés que le provocaba, de la cantidad de ejercicio que hacía con tal de que desapareciera y de los tratamientos que siempre se planteó empezar.
“Me has quitado la alegría, me has causado mucho estrés, me has hecho insegura y te has llevado mi confianza. Nunca me sentía en forma porque tú siempre estabas ahí”, escribe la deportista.
Desde que compartió esta inspiradora imagen, D’Ariano recibió tanto comentarios positivos como negativos. “Quienes no entienden la gravedad de la salud mental y las implicaciones que puede tener en tu vida ven esto como algo estúpido y por eso reaccionan de forma negativa”, reflexiona.
