Ok! So I’m not the kind of person who does this always, but of late or for the past many years I have really wanted to confront this issue and get it out my system…so bear with me Plzzzzzz!
It was not until a few days back that I had read this post, saying “She might not be the most beautiful girl in the world, but she is to her guy” or something in that sense, and it got me thinking. After a lot of thought I told myself “do this post, Lina” , cause from when did we need some guy to make us realize we are beautiful? Are girls actually blind to their beauty?
Living in India, where girls literally drench themselves with sunscreen just so that they don’t get themselves tanned even to a tiny extent, will not be an easy journey for a dusky or a dark girl. I am dusky and I am in fact very content with it! I’ve had people calling me chocolate ice-cream, but I have always taken it as a compliment. Infact I’ve replied to these comments, saying that I like chocolate ice-cream over all the other flavours any day !
If complexion is what defines beauty then why did God give us eyes, nose, eye brows, lips, nose and hair???? The actual problem arises when WE TEND TO LOOK DOWN UPON OURSELVES. I get up in the morning, thinking I am the most beautiful girl in the world, I am sorry if someone thinks I am wrong!
If being fair is the trend, we have to ask ourselves “don’t we also get to set our own trend as the youngsters of the world?”
What we are is our style and apart from enhancing it, we don’t have any right to ruin it! These commercials on TV are completely stupid and annoying and not even relevant to our life.
Complexion is just something I’ve personally been teased with. Everyone of us may have something else. But we just can’t sit there and crib about it just because someone else has already set the rules that a girl must exactly look like something. Create your own rules guys!
We have all the right in the world to be ourself! I can step out of my house without a touch of makeup, can you’ll too? Why spoil the wonderful skin we have been gifted with? Apart from occasions, wearing makeup is completely useless.
Do you have frizzy hair and feel uncomfortable letting it down without straightening it? Don’t be!!!!!! CAUSE IT’S WHO YOU ARE!!!!! Or you think you have too many pimples and can’t live without concealer? Don’t worsen them by wearing makeup. Don’t touch them, they’ll vanish before you even know it!
Your eyes are too tiny and you think it looks bad without a dash of eyeliner or kajal, YOU ARE SO WRONG!!!
I could just keep talking and talking and talking! So let me stop right here! Share this post with all the teens and adolescents you’ll know, plzzzzzz! I am no philosopher, but just another 19 yr old!
With lots and lots of love,
