I'm getting a lot of shit at school and stuff because people say my dreads don't look like dreads, and that they just look ridiculous; to be honest, I really don't care what they think, and I certainly won't take it to heart, but I still find it hurtful that people can be so ignorant. my dreads are only babies, just 2 and a half months old (I twist and ripped). I just wish people would understand dreads are more than a hairstyle, but a spiritual quest that I have began to express my individuality and spirituality, and to emphasize my identity. I try to explain that dreads are a magical journey that take a lot of time and patience, but nobody listens and everyone seems to have lost faith except me. So i suppose all i want is a morale boost. I'll never get rid of my dreads because of what someone says, in fact it probably makes me want them more to know that some people don't like them, but i hate the ignorance of single minded people. Does anybody agree with me, or have experienced anything similar?
Thanks for reading =)
Peace and love, Ig
