I’ve been meaning to create an account where I could share my experiences and stories etc. for a while now. And I did. I created quite a few, if I’m correct, but then I’d delete them thinking that they were pointless but honestly I really hope my thoughts, experiences and words, stories, everything, what I’ve been through, will help at least one dark skin out there. I hope it will comfort your heart and ease the pain that others put you through due to their words and actions. Don’t worry — everything will be okay. ❤️🌹
Brief introduction (as I do want to generally remain anonymous on here to be honest):
•Dark Skin (obviously duh)
•Bengali, born and bred in the UK

Welcome to my world...to my thoughts...I hope I don’t come to regret this later on. It’s always been such a personal topic for me that I barely ever discuss this with others. And if I do then it’s with light skins who don’t understand at all and somehow try to make it out as if they understand but they’ll never truly understand. Not unless they experienced the same words and situations that I, as a dark skin, did. That you did. Only you guys can understand me truly. I think I’ve discussed this properly with only a few people and I regret discussing it with two of them. At the time, they were my two closest friends. One of them is still my best friend but it just doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel right because she can’t relate. I feel like I can only have these discussions where it means something because you can relate to each other or when you can truly get your feelings out for whatever reason they may be. Oh well. Such is life. You live and you learn!
