my aunt wrote "where did my beautiful niece go?" i think the dreads add to beauty, not take away.
That's incredibly rude. I'm sorry. *hug*
thanks for all the comments! you all are very uplifting!!
Ooooh I know that one I'm 26 now and I've been getting those comments from my family ever since I dyed my hair pink when I was 14, I think it's just a natural reaction when the person that have tried to mould into a mini image of themselves starts thinking for themselves (a little differently). I shouldn't worry too much they still make the occasional remark, but with a rye smile..cos they know now I won't change for anyone!! heehee they know that I am confident in who i am and they might not necessarily like it, but they have learnt to respect it
and you are absolutely right..my mom saw my hair for the first time a week ago, after she was like omg look at your hair and grabbing it n squeezing it i said dont im letting it lock. her response was your doing what?! oh no..well i still love you anyway..i gave her the wtf look.
