In today’s post we will talk about how colourism affect our self esteem. That is do you question your worth depending on your skin colour? What can be more superficial that judging someone based on their skin colour. It is important for everyone to become aware of it and address it in a positive way, where everyone can try to understand the issue and that way we can start with resolutions and creating awareness. It is very important to address this issue first within yourself. If you question your self worth and value based on what society says? The media and beauty industry all across the world has shown us what the perfect body is and what skin colour is preferred. When you never see someone who looks and like you or belongs to the same ethnicity in a positive light, the impact on your spirit can be devalued.
