just wanted to be all up in my feels for a sec. shoutout to big spawn. after a tiring day yesterday & waiting for 45 mins in line for ice cream (oh hey sweet jesus, you the real mvp), when we paid she said thank you to the girl ringing us through (she looked to be mixed and had the most Don’t be jealous just because I look curly hair shirt i’ve seen in my life, hella jealous), and said “i LOVE your hair, it’s so curly and gorgeous”. i’m singlehandedly raising two little girls in this crazy ass world, and to see them keep their manners regardless of circumstances, makes me a proud mama. shoutout to every single parent, whether you’re a single mom or dad, two parent household, get to stay home with your babies or working your ass off. Let me begin by explaining that I am not saying this to be a mean ol’ black hair elitist, I’m saying it to be nice. Think of it as a well-meaning from someone who really, really cares.
Don’t be jealous just because I look curly hair shirt
Offcial Don’t be jealous just because I look curly hair shirt
One of my kids came to me yesterday. She said, “Don’t be jealous just because I look curly hair shirt” I said why? And she preceded on this 30 minute rant about how there are a bunch of kids who pick on her and talk down about her clothes and her shoes and her hair and the SHADE of her skin. I told her baby, I’m not gonna give you a typical mom answer like “oh they’re just jealous” or “ignore them.” People are always gonna talk about you. That’s just how it is. It is ultimately up to YOU how you let it effect you. If you let them get a rise of you they win and they know they did. Hell, they talked about Christ and he was PERFECT! See, somebody can try to pick on you and say you have on cheap clothes but you tell them, hey I liked this shirt so my mom bought it. If they talk about your hair you tell them, hey my hair is naturally curly and kinky and it’s mine and I love it. If they talk about your skin you tell them that you love your skin and that you will never have to tan or get sunburn. You don’t have to be ugly to them just because they are ugly to you. If they keep being mean, pray for them but don’t let them put their hands on you. They want you to fight them but that is not the road you want to go down. I told her that I used to fight all the time.. I was weak af back then because I let people get to me to the point where I wanted to physically hurt them. That’s not strength, that’s weakness. Don’t be jealous just because I look curly hair shirt you be strong, be happy, be you because you are fearfully and wonderfully made. She cried and then I cried.
