"Put down the bleach. Your skin is not dirt that needs to be cleaned out like yesterday’s shirt. You are comprised of sienna, chestnut, and warm mahogany. Dark as the night sky, constellations are tucked neatly underneath your bones. Your skin reminiscent of the hot chocolate that warms winter nights. Like rings around a tree stump, you too have history etched into your melanin. Don’t let the glaring whiteness, blind you from the beauty that you are. "
Trying to explain shit to my dad is always fucking pointless idk why I even try. He refuses to take in information he doesn’t agree w/ even if you show him facts…he’s just sooooooo fucking stubborn!

I hate when a person victimizes them-self for everything
I can’t have sympathy for u
Like man up
Figure how to overcome shit
Stop feeling like the world owe u shit
Cause it don’t
I understand some ppl are just dealt shitty hands of cards from birth
And yes I’m one of them
It’s up to you to play your cards right
U can’t always decide what happens to but you have the power to not let shit affect u
Yes it’s okay to cry , be mad …emotional …human but for how long tho ?
How long must u feel sorry for yourself b4 u decide u don’t want to feel like that no longer ?
