I'm a round peg in a square pole.
I'm sure there are plenty of us I suspect. I read articles about women going grey like it's a brave thing, yes we all have medals 😛 but there is a but cos it is still not the norm in this perfect world of fake everything.
I would hate to be younger put it that way, would I have been considered beautiful by today's standards, not a clue.
Now this grey hair business, I honestly can say what I've seen. That women look more beautiful and maybe it's because they are happier, who knows? Then an article comes out and women start attacking other women, mainly from their own fears but um we're not saying everyone has to be grey. Some people don't grow grey! It's all good, can't we just support each other?
Now me, I honestly literally forget every day I have grey hair apart from starting this account. I was extremely conscious of one millimeter of white showing, all I can think is I'm either so low maybe in self image which I don't think I am as I still make some effort to look good but it was more about who I was becoming and less about the colour that had been there all along, it's different for everyone. I get a surprise every time I see myself some days, oh I've got grey hair yep sounds crackers bit that's me.
I feel like why do we have to be anything.? Over 50, skinny, chubby, pretty, it goes on and on and on..just be.
