Loving My Beautiful Skin

Self-Pity? No Thank You: Love The Skin Your In
Having healthy self-esteem and a pretty blessed life, yet somehow society prefers some of us to wallow in self-pity because? The majority of  certain online communities  has seemingly become inundated with the theory that everyone wants to be  light or date light. Where are they getting this from? Is it because  Beyoncé is on virtually every cover of every magazine? Is it because certain black celebrity men publicly profess their adoration for those of a lighter hue? Or is it because almost every dark-skinned female we hear, see or read about blames their “early childhood low self-esteem”  on their complexion? Newsflash! EVERY chocolate sister doesn't suffer from, “I wish I was lighter.”
