Say No to Body Shamming and Colorism!

In the world that we live in today, there are so many people from different races, backgrounds, continents, with different bodies and appearances.

Most of the times, we notice beauty from people’s personalities and behaviors. But again we’re humans, we tend to judge people according to their physical appearance which is not something that I’d like the society to practice.
Have you ever been criticized/discriminated against because of your skin complexion or tone?
If so, then you’re being affected​ by coloursim, which is normally​ practised with people from the same race.
The society tends to think those with lighter skin complexion/tone are more beautiful compared to the ones​ with a darker skin complexion.
Well everyone has got their own opinion on physical appearance and looks but to me, I think all shades are beautiful, light or dark skinned human beings are beautiful beings.
Dark skinned people are treated like outcasts in the society which doesn’t add up because at the end of the day we’re from the same race and continent, and by this I don’t mean you should practice racism either.
I’ve faced colourism alot of times, I’ve complained but who cares anyway?
I know am dark skinned but I got nothing on light skinned people. I know they’re equally as beautiful as any other human being. I’ve ended up accepting that light skinned people are considered more beautiful, but that doesn’t make me feel any less beautiful, it’s just people’s opinions and yes there’s a right and freedom to opinion so I respect their opinion but I wish they’d open their eyes wider.
Another thing that the society faces especially in fields like modelling, is body shamming.
Many people are criticised and discriminated against because of their body shape and size.
Others are termed as shapeless which doesn’t make sense because each and every individual is shapeful and beautiful in their own way.
At times we end terming people as ‘too skinny’ or ‘too fat’ nobody feels so good about themselves after being called such names.
First, we should try understand why someone is the way they are, it could be a disease or condition that makes them the way they’re are. Instead of criticizing, we should make them better and make them realize that they’re just as beautiful as the rest of the humans.
Different sizes and heights shouldn’t be criticized, mostly, those who are short are the ones who get criticized. But we should realize the short people can be as helpful as the tall ones. In terms of height, the short people have mostly accepted their heights and don’t find it as a big deal when teased.
The society should learn to realize that people’s beauty are brought out according to their​ personality and not physical appearances.
These are some of the things that make people bleach, and go for beauty surgeries to enhance their bodies. If we appreciate ourselves first, there’s no way we’d criticize others.
We should accept each other the way we are and boost each other’s self-esteem.
Well nobody’s perfect but once you accept your flaws​,  you realize that you’re beautiful inside-out.
