I love the things other people hate about themselves

I used to think I understood God when I was broken until God healed this brokenness that was mine and healed it with Love (Self Love). I used to think that beauty is skin deep but not anymore. I used to think that what people looked like on the outside made them the most beautiful. I don’t believe that. People always said things to me about what was wrong with my skin. My skin is my largest organ and unlike a lot of black people I love my skin. I love my eyes. I love my womanhood that I share with all other women. I wouldn’t want to be a male or a man. I love the color pink in every shade from pale pink to hot pink. I love purple too. I try to understand God but I understand self acceptance and the gift God gave me. I know self acceptance for AYESHA is proof God does exist. He will take the least person and make them significant with his Love his self love!
