Conceited vs. Confidence

cuanonymous:

Conceited

  • “I look better than you.”
  • “I’m the most beautiful person in the world.”
  • “No one can compare to me.”
  • “You should look more like me.”
  • “I’m perfect.”

Confidence

  • “I look good today.”
  • “I’m not ugly.”
  • “I like myself.”
  • “Have to admit, I am cute.”
  • “I’m beautiful the way I am.”

THIS IS IMPORTANT! There is such a difference between arrogance and confidence. This is especially impt for people trying to overcome self esteem issues. There’s always that one person who jokingly says, “You’re so full of yourself!” and it effectively ruins the self confidence I tried so hard to build up.

You really think this lame ass shit is going to catch the attention of a black woman? Naw, kudos to you for taking a class in college but me n my people live this shit everyday so your college credentials don’t do shit to impress me.

#no white boys 2k14 
Honest Black Girl Moment

There are still so many moments where I wish that I was conventionally more attractive i.e long straight hair, light eyes, white/ pale skin. And its especially hard because by nature, I’m self conscious and I have low self esteem. And my boyfriend is white and he’s been conditioned by society to like the basic, euro centric prototype of beauty. I consistently end up comparing myself to these white girls he puts on a pedestal and even though I know the problem is within myself and also with society, I can’t help but do it anyway- even though its detrimental to both me and my perception of the intersection of race and beauty. I can recognize the beauty in any other black woman but myself.
