I chopped off my hair so I could stop hiding behind it
As a Latina and as a plus-size woman I have always been told that my hair is one of the things that made me attractive. I have been told that cutting my hair would make me look fatter. Because being fat is the worse thing that you can be.
I’ve had long hair most of my adult life. I constantly receive compliments on how beautiful it is and how cutting it would be the worse thing I could do.
My hair had become a safety blanket. On the days that I don’t feel good about myself I would hide behind it. But, I believe that to grow as a person you have to step out of your comfort zone. So, I chopped it off.
This isn’t the first time I cut my hair but it is definitely the shortest I have ever had it, at least since elementary school.
Chopping off my hair always feels like a big middle finger to society.
