5 years natural neglect


Member Journals and Timelines

No problem brother of mine. Truth be told I would rather be 49 than 29, the body aging is kind of a pain, but the freedom you get from being true to yourself trumps 20/20 eyesight any given time. My happiness has increased threefold when I realized that other people's opinions of me are their own projection and I didn't have to care anymore about said projections :)

Thank you:) the attention from young men crack me up. I just want to give them all hugs and share wisdom. Lol, they may as well be 5, that is how young they seem compared to me anyway.

I will be 49 in May. I didn't feel that age until I went from never having to wear glasses to always having a pair of reading glasses close by, I wear them Like a hair accessory now :)

Indeed. Thank you for pointing out that I had my email as my user name. I think I fixed it, I never even meant to create 2 profiles.

Thank you! I have no regrets and honestly have had nobody give me a hard time ( I live in a rural area with folks that aren't used to seeing people with dreads) if anything, boys under 25 have been particularly attentive.

Time sure does fly. After my hair stopped shrinking it just started growing really fast.

Introduce Yourself

Thank you for the wonderful welcome. On day two and realized today that this lock journey is bringing up some dormant ( haha, probably not so much dormant as avoided) insecurity issues. The least I could do for my hair is to let it be itself and grow as intended it is shining some light in places that have been in the dark for far too long. I feel profoundness heading my way :)

Introduce Yourself

Hello !So glad I found this wonderful site! Some beautiful things are opening up in me at the present time and with these things come the revelation that I want to get to know myself on the most personal and authentic level possible. I believe that my locks will help me in my spiritual growth by stripping away any false notions I have about my true self.I am a 43 year old nurse living in Southeast Oklahoma, the population of my town is 700. I anticipate some resistance in my community and family about not conforming. I actually look forward to it as I see it as an opportunity to show my heart and possibly break down some cultural stereotype barriers.I ask you all humbly for help in this spiritual endeavor....and look forward to sharing and getting to know y'all. Never again will I equate my worth by anybody else's standards of beauty. I am the only true beholder of my self perception and I hereby proclaim myself worthy of unconditional Love. You are all beautiful and I feel blessed to be here in such a sacred space :) Thank You! Minerva
