"There’s beauty is in the way you carry yourself, beauty is in your resilience, beauty in every dark spot and stretch mark. There was beauty in your creation. You the magnificent woman of color, carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Don’t let the concern about societies standards of beauty be a part of that weight. NEVER, and I repeat NEVER make yourself small for anyone. Your beauty shines within you, let it speak for itself, and he who cannot handle your luster deserves to stay in the dark." - Khaoula O.
