Hi, this is Nicole Little, and this blog is design for black women to learn how to love yourself for who God created you to be and not trying to change for somebody else in order for that individual to feel comfortable. This is design to build up our self esteem. You see, we live in a society that's telling us that we are unworthy, undesirable, unattractive, unloved, and worthy of abuse simply because we are black women. We were taught to hate our skin, our hair, our facial features, and our body type. We have been told that if a black woman doesn't fit the European standards of beauty, then we're seen as unattractive, and that's not true. I'm here to expel the lies that's been told by us ever since we were little girls. God did not make a mistake when he created you. You are fearfully and wonderfull made and don't ever let someone tell you any different. There's nothing wrong with you, black women.
There's so much in store for us, and it's up to us to get it if we are willing. Don't settle for less. There's nothing wrong with having standards for people, places, and things. If you want that dream job, then it's yours. If you want a good, well-established man of any race, then it's yours. If you want to have a nice house in a nice neighborhood, then it's yours. If you want to travel all around the world, then it's yours. Don't just talk about it, but be about it.
As black women, we can't rely on mainstream media, society, and sadly, the black community to make us feel beautiful, wonderful, and special. We have to do it for ourselves, and to find another medium of any kind that's going to uplift us and bulid us up. Self-love starts with US! If you don't love yourself, then how are you going to love somebody else? It's time to get rid of anything that's going to cause harm in our lives whether if it friends, family members, music, movies, videos, neighborhoods, or anything that's going to damage a black woman's self worth and self-esteem. Bad company corrupts good manners We can't afford to give in to negativity. Our lives are too precious for it.
In conclusion, black women, you are beautiful, and you are worth loving and caring for, and don't ever let anybody take that away from you.
