A Young Woman’s “Mixed” Struggle

I can’t even begin to tell you the struggle of being mixed and not “looking” it , it created so many insecurities because Black people tell me I can’t do certain things because I’m too White and White people tell me since I’m Black I can’t relate …

It has been quite a struggle for a while but recently I’ve learned to ignore it because they aren’t me, they don’t know what it’s like and i honestly don’t think they realize how they sound when they say these things…

I am constantly stuck between whether i’m Black , White or even Native American when in reality I am all and since that’s not common I have to break down my own barriers and not care about what others are telling me what I can and can’t do/say.. rather do what God is telling me to do..

Sounded hard at first but now that I have found my voice it’s getting easier & easier.
