So recently, More like a 2 days ago, I decided to take out my wave and let out my natural kinky hair. I have always enjoy having my hair kinky, so I thought why not just let it all out. I decided to put on to different color roses on either side of my head, but has I step into my first period Spanish class all eyes was on me. I felt self-conscious. But I wanted to be myself.. learn to love myself and I was not letting anyone bring me down. But on the corner of the room was the girls I called my friends. They were snickering like they just heard one of the funniest joke of all time. I just ignored it. I thought to myself….”I know who I am and I am not letting anyone bring me down.” But has the class progressed a paper was thrown into my hair. I took it out and just shrugged it off. Than lunch came. There is this man at my school who takes care of the distribution of the supplies. He came up to me and said “what wrong with your hair. You need to fix that. Do something or whatever to fix it.” I could no longer have held the tears. It just rolled out. My best friend eventually met me at the bathroom and calmed me down. We than went to class were I got shock and disapproving stares. I just was calmed the whole day. Than someone told me “GO GET A PERM!”
This story I had to tell it may connect to me…It help me understand myself eventually.
