I am biracial; my mum is white and my dad is black. Growing up i was the darker one from my siblings who all have light coloured eyes and lighter skin than me.
My mum used to insult my skin colour when she was angry at me and my dad used to make jokes about my colour (although he's a lot darker than me). Because they made these comments, my siblings who were older than me at the time also insulted me the same way when we had fights.
I grew up insecure as hell and i never spoke to anyone about this. I'm still in the process of loving my skin colour but it's difficult. Now that i'm 21, it's crazy to me that no one mentions this anymore and I spent the last 7ish years of my life pretending that this never happened.
Although it's been years, every time i remember this, i cry. I love my family, but every time i recall this I feel angry inside.
Should I speak to them about this? Or should i get professional help?
i am so sorry you had to go through that. ur mum im sorry is trash. u are beautiful just the way you are. having light skin is not an achievement and ur siblings are stupid for insulting ur skin colour. speak to them about this. i understand ur siblings because they will just imitate ur mums bad parenting but u need to slap ur mum. how dare she.
