Beautiful and Inspiring

 

Being naturally a fair person, I often get people coming up to me and commenting on that, with a tinge of wistfulness. My being freckle-cheeked doesn’t seem to deter their feelings of wanting-what-I-have-and-they-don’t. It’s rather sad. The desire to be fair in my part of the world contrasts with those of the other parts where tanning seems so essential. This is despite the cautions of skin cancers being disseminated.

I think the bottom line is that people are often unhappy with the skin colour they are born with. I think it’s a more-than-skin-deep issue. In general we find it hard to accept ourselves. There is this lie we grow up with that we are not good enough, not tall enough, not strong enough, not fair enough, not dark enough, not this and that enough.

Hence it is so refreshing to hear this young lady.
