Life Issues Facing Dreads
My father just broke down the other night and told me I look like a homeless person. Fr the most part my parents and my in laws are TRYING to be supportive (by supportive I mean trying to ignore my hair and cracking minimal jokes.) my worst critics are usually people who wouldn't get it anyway- some friends mothers etc...) I just told them it's a commitment, a public one. And the journey is messy, but like most important things in life- it's worth it in the end. I've got a few years on you so my situation is slightly different but I try to say something or make a comparison that draws the attention away. Ex: 1- i just had two babies, those first ultrasounds were more alienesque than cute and cuddly, but 9 months in the oven and they came out pretty awesome!! 2- I've donated my hair three times so far, if I wind up hating em- I know for damn sure I can rock a short haircut Stay true to you. Realize you probably look a little funny it's natural for people to say stupid things- ask anyone who has any type of visible or audible disability. Enjoy your journey, maybe journal your experiences and keep on truckin!
