HELP Losing the Faith

Before I started dreading, my hair was to my lower back. It shrank for almost 2 years. By the time it had finished shrinking it was above my shoulders. On the 3rd year it was to my shoulder blades. 4th year is was about mid back. 5th year it was to my lower back. Now it has almost been 6 years and my longest dreads tickle my butt crack lol.
I know you thought about it for 20 years and losing length was your worry....but if you had only given a few years to the process 20 years ago....your hair would now be to the floor. Yes your hair is going to get short. Yes your hair is going to have thicker ends where the shrinkage gobbles up the most of that length. With time and patience you will have the dreads that you want.
I went through the whole process and survived lol. You can too.
