View Full Version : [OT] I feel....free!

So, I've kept my hair long for a while now, using it as a way to sort of "hide" what I consider my fat face. I posted about a week ago about how I've recently gone on Lexapro and Ativan due to anxiety and depression...and yesterday I made split second decision to do something for myself and no one else....

I chopped off all my hair! Like, 8 - 10 in of it. It feels gratifying and freeing in a way, like I'm proud of my face and I don't care what anyone else thinks. I also haven't weighed myself in about two weeks, just concentrating on eating right and taking care of myself...this is also both a relief and gratifying as well, not to constantly be on my own butt about it.

I love it. I hope you guys do to....I especially love when I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror, and just felt my heart soar. This is the best I've felt in a while! :D

[PS, sorry the pic is so big.....]

Looks great~!!!! Wish I could be that brave to make a huge change like that. I did layer mine a few months ago, but kept the length. I should be brave like you and cut it off. I have had my hair below my shoulders for YEARS.

Oooh, so cute!!! I've always been extremely wary of getting a short cut, too, even though my hairdresser swears that it would add tons more volume to my extremely thin/limp locks... But I'm convinced that it would just enhance the roundness of my face. :dunno: Serious kudos to you for going after the cut you wanted and being obvious evidence that a 'do like this can be totally flattering and adorable on anyone!! I agree with those above who have said that there's no need whatsoever to hide your cute face, chicky! :D

It must feel great to cut away all that hair; it's like you're symbolically cutting away years of baggage and such, too--definitely a freeing experience. I'm very very happy for you! :cheers:

You and the haircut are adorable! :)

Good for you for doing something for yourself. We (women) tend to put ourselves last.

I love your comment: You don't care what everyone else thinks! YES YES YES! That's an incredible uplifting feeling.

What's next...a high-light! hee hee

Thank you so much guys! I finally found the word I've been looking for - liberating! It's so liberating to just...cut it all away, to say it's a new me with a new outlook on life. That I don't need the horrible baggage I've been carrying around, that I don't need to be thin to have my hair as short as I want, that I can do whatever I want and everyone who says otherwise can kiss my slowly shrinking butt!

I feel like I'm putting my foot down and giving the finger to all the bad stuff that's been holding me down. I feel great :)
