I echo SE's advice about working on things in your life you may be dissatisfied with. I certainly know that for me, when I get down, I take it out on my body in some way, and the past two times have been on my hair (cutting, combing out), and I've definitely wished I hadn't done so.
So I'd advise you sit with your feelings a little longer and see if it really is your hair calling out for change, or if there are areas in your life that could use some attention. Always remember to be loving and gentle with yourself, and anything you choose, in the end, is going to be the right choice, even if it doesn't feel like it at the time.
Only you know what's best for you!
I just thought i would my opinion..Hmmm i guess more a story of my life. I have always wanted dreads and always walked my own path through life & went my own way Ive always been somewhat of an outkast because i think differently and have never been afraid o express my opinion or beliefs. I have tried to grow my hair out many many times since i cut it short when i was just 15 yrs old But i was always goarded at all times. between all the drugs & alcohol (more recently just lots of weed) & i would always eventually, whether a few months in or a year in, come to the point you seem to be at. Ill be 29 in july & in july i will be a approx yr & a half sober & i decided i was going to grow out my hair & dread it & i have done just that. Now thats not the only positive thing in my life thats happened since complete sobriety & i am by no means bashing those who love to blow mary as i did, but my life is more positive now & i do not second guess or regret my decisions anymore. nor am i impatient. Im a newbie just starting my adventure but maybe my life story & my change could help
& by no means am i bashing anyones decision but it may be as SE said that you ar seeking a change & the first thing you think when that happens is the easiest to change, Your Hair. But maybe its a deeper thing that needs changed, far beneath your hair or your exterior For me that was some sobriety. For you it may be something diff I only mention my story because of the fact that you mention trying to stay sober & if thats where your heart is & the change that is needed lies you always have a friend in me for help in that area!
