Black is beautiful and I'm proud of my skin colour
Hi guys, hope you had a good weekend, last week I read some articles on the internet about skin bleaching. Some black women and even some men in My continent Africa use bleaching creams in order to have their skins look lighter, which they believe will make them look more beautiful. My observation is that bleaching makes them look bad, look at some of the pictures below ( from yoknyamdabale.wordpress.com).
This is very sad, why people are not comfortable with their skin colour? I think these people have low self esteem and body image issues, in the sense that they don't feel they are worth. That's why they think changing their skin colour to look lighter, might make them feel superior and happy.
My dear sisters and brothers, what you need to change is the way you see your skin colour, your body, your personality. In other words You have to work on how you think about yourself. Accept your skin tone and love the way you are, don't let the colour of your skin holds you back.
My sister/brother if you are one of them, you need to get help (professional help), try talk to someone you can trust, a therapist, a religious leader, etc. Someone who can support and help you get to the root of the problem, you need to accept who you are and increase your self esteem.
That's me a black woman, and I know I'm beautiful
Let me tell you this, beauty is about confidence, you can whiten your skin, change your boobs, do a nose job whenever. "Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical."
