There's been a lot of changes in my life the past couple of months, and I know that more are quickly coming. When there are so many uncertainties surrounding you, decisions being made that you have no voice in...you feel trapped.
All of these emotions of ring restrained, uncomfortable, and sad sort of manifested into a focus on my hair. My long, long hair. Suddenly looking at my hair brought rage. It was a symbol of being restrained.
And I needed freedom.
So I had it cut off. All of it, save a few inches on the top of my head. My hairdresser cut off at least 12 inches of hair, and I was able to donate 10 inches of it.
And I felt free.
I no longer cared about what this person or that person thought about me as I hid behind a mass of wild hair. I'm more confident in myself, a quality that was lost years ago.
So, come on World. I'm ready to experience you.
