We live in a society where the standard of beauty was NEVER meant for us. Our people have been taught for so long that our skin is too dark, hair too nappy, and everything associated with beauty isn’t black. The sad part about that is some of our people believe those lies.
As a black woman, remind yourself of the beauty you possess. Your beautiful shade of brown, hair that is unique and simply amazing, then let’s not forget your natural-born swag! With everything black women have historically gone through in this country, the fact that we are still standing is proof of our awesomeness!
The more you realize this the less you will ever need validation from anyone else. We know who we are and that should be more than enough to confirm the beauty that lies within!
