"Fat isn’t cute"
And yet here I am fatter and cuter than ever
"OMG you’re so dark"
"So where in Africa are you from? Nigeria?
"Make sure you marry a light skin man/woman or your kids will be too dark"
"You should tone down the bright colors, it makes your dark skin stand out too much"
"You’re actually cute for a dark skin girl/guy"
*Insert midnight/disappearing in dark joke here*
How to build self confidence?
Confidence comes from knowing your worth. If you think you don’t have anything to offer the world, it’ll show. Get to know yourself, figure out what you’re about, what are your values, what do you stand for, what do you want out of life. Start by thinking good thoughts about yourself then act on those thoughts. It takes a lot of effort and hard work to be positive in world where negativity is encouraged. Dig deep, you can do it.

Was I not worth an explanation like the others?
