i love my hair short. i feel prettier and more myself than i ever have with long hair. when i got this dress i didn’t wear it very often because i didn’t like the way it looked on me. now, i like it. i think that has to do with confidence. i feel better now that my hair is short so i have different opinions on how i look in certain clothes. i’m not going to wear my hair long just because that’s what people expect or want on a girl, i’m going to wear my hair the way i want. because with something as easy to control as hair… why wouldn’t you do what you want? why wouldn’t you get that haircut you want or dye your hair different colours? why wouldn’t i take control over something to make me feel more comfortable in my own skin? because in the end, it doesn’t really matter what my hair looks like. it doesn’t change anything about me. so i might as well cut it short and feel good about it. i might as well do something small to make me happier. i can change it again later if i want
and if i occasionally look “like a boy,” then so be it. that doesn’t really bother me. i won’t go running off to pierce my ears like i did in kindergarten when a kid told me i looked like a boy.
