Beautiful Little Girl

Hey lovely bloggers๐Ÿ˜Š. Let me share a lil bit of my personal experience with you all. Twas fun writing this and I hope it helps someone out there ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy reading ๐Ÿ˜

Growing up I was labeled as ugly because of my beautiful dark skin and nappy hair. Beautiful was something else but definitely not my skin color and myself. So I started having self esteem issue, self hatred and low self confidence. I often wanted to change myself into something that woul fit their description of beauty but I couldn’t change who I was.

Beautiful was that light skinned girl with long straight hair and a thin figure. Something I was absolutely not.

Growing up I realised that what I was exposed to when I was little somehow affected how I see myself and that’s sad really. When someone would tell me that I’m beautiful I’d have that voice in my head that reassures me that I should not get over my head because I’m not. That sucked because every compliment I got I took it as a ridicule that how can she/ he says that I’m beautiful. Is he mocking me?

Long story short. I woke up one-day and realized that I’m too precious to be doing this thing of not believing in myself. I told myself each day that I’m beautiful in my dark skin that I wouldn’t trade for anything. God created me so He didn’t create a failour and it’s about time I start loving myself. I reminded myself that I’m perfect.

I’m getting there. I have my moments but I’m gladly getting there.

There goes Precious ๐Ÿ˜

May we build our young girls believing that their natural beauty is perfect

May we mold them to believing that their worth is out of this world

May we ensure that their confidence and self love is enhanced

They matter. How they see themselves matter. Because all this… this foundation can build your young one into something greater.

Tell them they are precious. You love them. You appreciate them. They are beautiful. God loves them. They matter. They are perfect. Their skin color is perfect. Their nappy hair is rich and amazing. Tell them their natural beauty is amazing.

Happiness on my rich melanin skin

#Precious
