|| self-reflection pt. 1 ||
In the summer of 2016, I fell into a very deep depression. I’d always dealt with feelings of inadequacy and emptiness, but I felt things quickly escalating as the summer progressed. The lack of consistent activity and socialization coupled with being in a new environment intensified the loathing that I felt for myself. I felt as if I was losing touch with reality. On August 26, 2016, I had a meltdown and cut all of my hair off, essentially going natural. Although my decision to go natural spawned from unfortunate circumstances, the journey has been one of self-learning. As my hair has grown, so has my love and respect for myself and my confidence in handling the situations that come my way. Everyday I look at my hair and say, time goes on.
To anyone who is screaming into the void in hopes of being heard, I hear you. You got this.
