I am so glad I did it. I love my friend and pray that she gets well and this time will be quick for her.
Shaving my head has given me an unexpected perspective... I never realized how much I let what I look like (or thought I looked like) affect my day to day life. I thought I had good self esteem. But I didn't. If I didn't do my hair before going out, I felt frumpy. I don't even like styling my hair and yet I continued to get hair cuts that I had to style to look "good". Why?Shaving my head as gotten rid of all of that. I have nothing to hide behind now and it feels so great. What a difference. :) I just feel like smiling all day. People have said how nice I look, how my eyes stand out now. All compliments I wanted to hear but I things I didn't believe.
So glad it's done!
