No one should ever get used to being bullied, because that’s what it is when someone intentionally goes out of their way to behave in way intended to hurt another person, physically or mentally. So at no point should that be something you get used to.
You have the negative thoughts of other peoples opinion on dark skin, it’s not your own thoughts that you see when you look in the mirror. When you look in the mirror you dismiss everything that is beautiful about you, because all you see it a color that someone has told you is not beautiful.
So next time you look in the mirror, don’t look at your skin tone. Look at your features that shape your face, the individual molds that are unique to you and you only. Look at these features and ask yourself what you like about them, how can you not see your beauty?
Now confidence in your beauty is not going to come overnight, but gradually you can learn to love yourself and your skin tone.
You can’t control how other people think, but you have full control of your own thoughts. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection.
