I know I'm not alone in #growingup with #selfesteem & #bodyimage issues. It wasn't until adulthood I realized how some of that was influenced by internalized white supremacist values. Like hating my #hair & wishing it was lighter...straighter. And thinking my eyes were ugly/boring & that I might be "pretty" with light eyes. It's been many years since I've broken #free from that #mentality But it wasn't until recently I consciously had meaningful #positiveattributes for the #darkeyes The #Creator gifted me & understood their #beauty just as they are. Tag a friend whose #eyes are so beautifully #deep they #reflect a #clearnightsky 🌌. Take a moment right now to practice #selflove & #buildconfidence for who u r in the present πŸ€—
