I hate when you go thru something that is traumatic to you, and people seems to think you should just get over it. They make you feel like it was a one time thing and your dwelling on it too long. How am I supposed to move on when my feelings and emotions are all over the place? If I’m not working or doing mom stuff I want to sleep because that’s the only time I don’t feel things.
I saw this pic and it helped me so much. Because I felt like I needed some validation that what I’m feeling is okay. That’s sad to me. Why do I always need validation to be okay with what I’m feeling?
I will never understand the hate behind when men or others say light skin women are better or they only like and want to date them. It’s not like we walk around thinking we are better. We don’t make comments like “The blacker the better the sweeter the juice”. Let one of us say something remotely close to that about us being better and they come for blood.
At the end of the day we all are black. Point blank and the period. Just because we may be someone’s preference doesn’t mean our sisters should be ready to tear us down. Or we feel better than our brown and dark skin sisters.
I grew up in a house full of brown and dark skin women and I wanted to look like them…but for whatever reason I was different. I finally excepted it and never felt better than them.
When we gonna let that shit go?! #askingforclarification
