What is the definition of beauty? Does it mean that if you dark you not beautiful and if you light in complexion then you beautiful? Really now? Well the past week someone said something to me that didn’t sit well with me. We live in a society where a lot of people have low self-esteem, they don’t have confidence in themselves, where by people are living someone else’s dreams or maybe try to imitate other people, and therefore you wont be able to reach your destiny because you living your life according to someone.
So this lady she came to me, and she said to me that she loves my body, I have a beautiful body and so on. In her complements, she then said to me “don’t you wish you were light though, because you will be really beautiful if you can maybe make yourself a bit light,” I politely looked at her and said this to her “how is that even possible, I was in my mother’s womb for nine months and that never happened.” All I’m trying to say is that who said that if you light or “yellow bone” you beautiful?
I am one confident girl, who is dark, beautiful, and I don’t need to be a “yellow bone” to see and know that I’m beautiful because I know that I am. A lot of girls and women have bleached their skins because they believe that if you are light you are beautiful, well I say to you that is because you don’t know what you want, and you have a low self-esteem that you cannot even embrace who you are, what you are, and how you look. I still say that big up to those girls who are like me, who wear their confidence wherever they go and wherever they are and embracing their African beauties.
For each and every dark girl out there, stay black and beautiful, embrace your beauty, because you don’t need to be yellow to be beautiful. To all yellow bone girls big up to you because you were born yellow and beautiful too, and to those home made yellow bones big up to you too. WE ARE DARK AND LOVELY. DARK SKIN GIRLS THIS IS FOR YOU, WEAR YOUR BLACKNESS AND SHINE!!!!!!
