Today is International Women’s Day which means that I am meant to be feeling confident and empowered. Sadly, that is not the case. I am tired at the moment and have been working on essays all day. And unfortunately I have found that there is a definite correlation between whether or not I miss having long hair and my tiredness levels.
It’s funny because I saw two old friends today and they both said that they liked my hair and thought that it suited me. But because I wasn’t feeling it, their loveliness made no difference. It’s amazing how once you get into a certain mindset it’s SO hard to break. It’s super frustrating. I’m a big believer that when you feel something you just have to let yourself feel it until it eventually passes. But I also think it’s important to not let negative feelings affect your entire being.
I had to really depend on God today to stop my feeling towards my hair today seep into the rest of my mood. And the only way to do that was to constantly pray and remind myself how much God loves me. That’s kinda amazing.
