You’re the blue-eyed guest of honor

Haley Cantin,
Sanger, CA.

I am white american female and I always get “because of your eyes”. When someone compliments me and says I’m pretty I often ask why.. and most responses I get are “because of your eyes”. But everyone has eyes? Am I not pretty becuase of anything else? Do my eyes define me? Is that all what people see in me? Don’t get me wrong I absolutly love it when people compliment my eye color and say its pretty, but it becomes a different level when people see me a certain way because of my eyes, I would still be the same person if I had brown eyes, its just a color. I chose the 6 words “you’re the blue-eyed guest of honor” because every single time i visit my boyfriends house his parents are always doing things for me and going out of their way to make things better or more comfortable for me, but they don’t do the same things for thier other daughter-in-laws and they always justify by saying I’m the blue-eyed guest of honor. So basically because I’m white and have blue eyes they’re treating me in a different manner. I don’t understand this. Socially people create these standards for different races becauase of appearence, and it creating this level of awkwardness between different appearences. Theres more to me then my eyes, I have a personality, get to know me, theres more to me then my eyes, I have life problems just like everyone else, theres more to me then my eyes, I’m me… we’re all human and no matter what color anything is, we’re equal. We shouldnt assume or socially create these boundaries between races. My name is Haley, not blue-eyed guest of honor. Get to know me.
