I chopped off my hair. For a few reasons, actually.
The first is, I chopped off my hair once before. I loved it. I loved having short hair, and I loved the flexibility I had with all sorts of different styles and textures that I could not play around with donning my long, curly locks. Unfortunately during that time I was just starting college, and had no idea where to go to for cut touch-ups. I also had no money.
The second is, ever since, I have wanted to give short hair a proper chance. But I had always denied myself because I had gained weight since 2013, and thought I wasn’t “skinny” enough to have short hair. How awful, right? How mean? I literally denied myself a haircut for over 4 years because I didn’t feel “good enough” for it. HOW CRAZY IS THAT?
I have since decided that I am more than “good enough.” And that it is absolutely ridiculous to deny oneself a haircut solely based on stigmas, self-sabotage, or what other people may think. I may not be as skinny as I want to be (ugh) but I have always wanted to be at my old weight and have short hair again. Now, I’m halfway there!
Moral of the story: Don’t let your mind limit you or sabotage you into being less than who you are meant to be.
Also, you can pull off whatever look you want to ❤
