A Personal Story!
“I was only 10 then when I experienced my first shaming.
When a boy, younger than me got into an argument with me, he told me something that stayed with me for years after that. He said, “Girls are supposed to be fair, & beautiful, look at you.” The little girl in me broke down into pieces because she did not know how to respond when he pulled off the final trigger of my weakest insecurity.
I remember how unworthy I felt of myself; it only grew to become worse.
I pasted everything that was in my kitchen on my face to become “fair” – from lemons to haldi to honey- just about everything that people said would make me fair.
By 12, my search history was flooded with, “How to be fair” videos because by that time I genuinely believed I was not worth anything.
By 14, I was told by my own family members that I am excessively thin for my age and that I am not meeting the societal standards that are placed on the girls my age.
Everyone who is putting on a happy face is secretly dealing with his or her own insecurities because “Too fat, too thin, too Dark, IT JUST WON’T STOP”
Then something changed inside me and when things change inside you, everything changes around you. It did not happen overnight. It took me time to decide for myself that I loved the way I look regardless of what anyone thought or said to me.
I learned over time that
I AM BEAUTIFUL.
I AM ENOUGH. AND SO ARE YOU.”
“Don’t let your mind bully your body”
We’re all more than our coloration and body types,
Cause you and I, we’re all alike,
People aren’t made to fit or custom made,
It’s time we realize love comes in all shapes and shades.
It’s time we love all shapes and shades.”
