We went to the park yesterday and I’ve realized one thing that I should be thankful for. Actually, we have lots of things to be thankful for every single day from the moment we wake up until we fall asleep again. As we walked through the park, I’ve seen lots of Italian lying in the grass, sunbathing, burning their skin under the sun while I’m just here, effortlessly burned. Lol. My skin is naturally dark and I’m loving it. I really don’t want to be white, I’m contented with my skin color and I want it darker like Vanessa Hudgens or Beyonce. Beautiful!!! I’m in love! I should be thankful for it.
In many different cultures and countries around the world, skin color plays a huge role in the concept of beauty. Lighter skin is often preferable than darker skin. But did you ever noticed that beauty is not with your skin color? True beauty is with how confident you are in presenting yourself. People always think that when you’re white, you are better. NO! IT’S NOT WITH SKIN COLOR. It’s so disappointing to think that it probably matters in the society we live in, others might find you less attractive & that’s in general.
As time goes by, it seems like darker skin is also considered beautiful. We are all beautiful. Skin color doesn’t matter and it shouldn’t. Never lose your confidence over something like skin color issue or anything. People made fun of you because they’re jealous and insecure. Don’t feel like what you are right now is nothing. Enjoy the natural beauty that you have. You are lucky! And I’m so lucky that I’m naturally tan!
By the way, let me just tell you a short story! Hihi. I was facing back the road when a lady touched my hair from the back. I was shocked and so I smiled at her. She grabbed my hand and kissed it, then she said “bellisima” (it means beautiful in Italian). I’m so flattered and glad. My dad said that that’s how Italian show their adoration. So cute! :)
