Dna is a surprise, you never know what you'll get.
In my family, each one comes in different colors.
My mom has all the redhead features, green eyes, darkest auburn hair, freckled as a leopard, still not a full redhead.
her brother is a blue eyed blonde, and their sister, has olive toned skin, hazel eyes, dark brown hair. Me and my brothers are completely different as well.
Me , being the fairest of them all, my sister, skin type 3 I guess.....tans easily, very brazilian-like skin tone, and my brother, ash brown hair, pink skin tone. We all have brown eyes tho.
our Father had full brown features.
When I was born, they thought I was albino or something, cuz you could see the inside lol, sometimes you still can..try me, i glow in the dark...my hair was deep auburn, like wine. It got brown and so stayed till my teenage years, and all of a sudden it started to go red,and i freaked out. People asking me if i was dying my hair....I have tried to go against it, and it seems to be a stubborn color. Im not into the sun, but if I expose myself, my hair goes orange right away. I have light lashes but dark beard. And I may have a million different tones when it comes to body hair. From red to blonde. Its quite odd!!!
It took me so long to embrace who I am, till I find out that I am no alien. now I have red haired friends, and they come in many skin tones and hair shades. Very distinct ethnicities as well. Not every ginger comes with pale skin. Dont buy that.
Traveling around the world, made me realize that gingerism is spreading faster than anyone could expect. Everywhere i go I see many, including one black little girl, with light red hair, blonde lashes... very exotic and unique.
This happens only because we carry the unknown inside our genes. Some things we just cant control.....
At the end of the day,you should embrace your true self, you may not like all of your features, you may not even be your type, and you may not please the mass, but there will always be beauty, no matter where you look.
