As title Im beginning to fail at coping with all the negativity I get on a daily basis because of my dreads.
Dont get me wrong, there is no way in hell I would cut them off. They are as part of me now as my right arm.
However in all the time Ive had dreads (over a year overall, did a restart at 6 months) I'veliterallyonly had 3 people say anything positive about them. (One of those went on to criticise they dont look like 'neat' dreads)
Every day is the usual barrage of being told I look like a drug dealer, a birds nest and other suchderogatoryterms. It is really starting to grate on my already low self-esteem.
So, anyone else in the same situation have any tips on dealing with such numpties?
