Whats with the negativity?
It's been 10 months since I began my dreads and I have no regrets, my husband has been supportive. Friends and family really didn't comment at all and have not said anything to me about my hair since I began this journey. I know this is because they don't like it. Before dreads my hair was a frequent topic as everyone loved how long it was and thought it was beautiful. I haven't minded the fact that they all kept quiet as I felt if they had nothing nice to say about it they were good enough to keep it to themselves.last week was my birthday and one of my family who i dont see often finally said something, it was all negative and once he started he just couldn't stop paying out on me about my hair. the funny thing is he has friends who have dreads, his point was that mine weren't real because I didn't get them done at the hair dressers. And it was all other rude rubbish about how shit my hair was etc...I didn't realise that I would be so offended but for some reason this really hurt!I thought I was getting over worrying about what people thought. judging from my reaction though I think I have a long way to go.so on with the journey, this can only make me stronger, more aware, and helps me to see who the people are in my life that really care.Has anyone else experienced this? What is the best reaction to these kind of negative comments, I want to a be a peaceful person! But these things still seem to bother me?
