Gabrielle Union is looked upon as gorgeous, talented, and successful, which makes her a great role model for women everywhere.
She recently covered Ebony Magazine’s October issue, looking as flawless as ever, where she revealed what she would say to her younger self, how woman should deal with self-esteem and more!
On notes of Wisdom to her younger self, she says:
Your deep Mahogany skin may not resemble that of the others in your family, but it’s just as gorgeous and you’re just as worthy….One day you’ll appreciate how much your brown skin shines in the moonlight, glistens in the sun and ages ever so slowly.
Gabby also touches on what she would tell a younger her about self esteem, love and independence.
Don’t let that pesky low self-esteem creep in and fool you into believing that you don’t have value…don’t allow it to crush your will or dampen your spirit…Never worry about LOVE….real love will find you….an incredible love with an incredible man….there is a beautiful rainbow at the end of your storm.
Don’t let other people’s needs, wants, desires, fantasies, hopes or dreams dictate your choices and decisions. Follow your own path, and don’t worry that you’re being selfish or disloyal.
We know that incredible man she speaks of must be Mr. Dwayne Wade himself!
It sounds like Gabby has a great head on her shoulders and can help a lot of females out!
The issue of Ebony with Gabby on the cover hits stands on September 10th.
What would you tell your younger self?
