When I am not generating content for Black Girl Today, I often guest write for other blogs.
“When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity, happiness… All the good things.”
Moise Morancy recently coined the phrase #MelaninMonroe in a viral Facebook video. His
post inspired me to take a different approach with my thoughts on colorism.
While reading the blogs that I’m subscribed to, I ran across a post from Ayesha Curry’s ‘Little Lights of Mine’. The post dealt heavily with insecurities.
It can be said that vulnerability is the only bridge to build meaningful connections. Being vulnerable often times is seen as weakness and I definitely will say that I am someone who struggles with being vulnerable.
Some people naturally stand out and that’s okay!
I am a very outspoken and outgoing young lady that is often penalized for those very characteristics.
