Oh me, oh my, my hair is awry. Today, along with falling out in massive amounts, it also decided to break off 3 inches from my head in many spots!
Society wants us to have long luxurious hair! Every other commercial is a hair product showing long flowing shiny hair! Everywhere you look you are bombarded with this VERY important fact: Girls MUST have long pretty hair are they aren’t pretty. Society sucks. It puts pressures no one can measure up to. We are inundated with social media and TV telling us how we are supposed to look and what men want. If we weren’t, then my current hair situation would not matter. I would not bat an eye at it. It would just…be.
I didn’t even realize I made this face until I just posted it here. The pressure of pretty hair. Those of us with chronic illness cannot live up to this. I don’t have a medical answer, but my guess is, my bones and muscles are taking everything it can and leaving my hair in the dust.
I didn’t let my hair, or lack there of, ruin a perfectly good day. As we pulled into the driveway I totally forgot about my hair when I saw the other blooms on my Japanese magnolia! All things in perspective. Really. LIfe is such a balance of perspective. I had a wonderful outing with my husband and I smelled the most magnificent smell of this flower. Balance.
