I know it's been said a million times, but here it is again for the million-and-oneth (million-and-first?!) time:
Don't live your life to please people. Don't make your life choices based on "what would people say."
First of all, it is not worth it. Second of all, it is not even possible.
People don't know what they want. Today, they think it is cool that you are the first person of color to marry into British royalty. Tomorrow, they think you are an upstart "black woman" who is trying to rise above her station and steal their beloved prince away.
People have unreasonable expectations. They are fickle. How they feel about you is not based on what you do, it is based on how they feel.
So, Duchess Meghan , if you ever read this, I hope you are happy. I hope you are thriving. I hope you are proud of who you have become.
I hope you are all God created you to be.
