Am I Alone In This Revelation?
Life Issues Facing Dreads
I am not even 3 full weeks into letting my hair do it's thing and dread and I am already amazed. I truly thought I was at peace with myself and those in my life before I made the decision to go on this journey, but now I am seeing and feeling the changes within myself and am the happiest I've ever been in my life. I have never felt so... satisfied? The best way I can describe the feeling is it's pretty much like finally, I'm done wanting. I mean, obviously there's still things I "want" or wish for, like for people to be more loving, forgiving, tolerating, fair, and honest, but I'm also much more accepting to the things I cannot change. So whereas I used to be what I now see as overly-critical, I am now very accepting of the fact that I can't change that people are brainwashed or narrow-minded, misinformed/uneducated, or just plain have opinions/beliefs that I completely disagree with. I am very content spending my free time alone, because although I may be accepting, it doesn't mean I want those kind of people involved in my life. But what I'm really trying to get at is that since beginning this journey, I have become the surest I've ever been of myself, my life, and the people I have in it. I love it.
