I am a dark skinned girl living in a country
which places white skinned people on a pedestal
and looks down on people with even slightly dark skin tone.
Since I am very dark skinned,
I tend to avoid wearing bright colors like white and yellow
because they make me look even more darker.
However, I wore a white blouse today
which I bought because it was so pretty
that I just couldn't pass it up.
I thought that even if it may not look good on me,
it's still a good looking top
and so I just wore it to work.
And a co-worker complimented me!
She said "That top is really cute
and White looks awesome on you!"
I turned into a puddle.
I am feeling good about myself ever since.
The point is，
Don't be so insecure
that you might miss something good!
