A work in progress

I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason and that you can learn from every experience that you have. So at 17 when I had to shave my head completely bald because of Alopecia (peep the link below), I took it as something to overcome as opposed to something that could make or break me. It’s unfortunate that today’s society places so much value on appearance. I’ve seen it first hand. I actually lost friends because I shaved my head. I’ve been stared at and whispered about just going to the mall without a hat on. Sure it was hard sometimes, but generally I was fine with no hair. To be quite honest, it was just one less thing to do in the morning. But not everyone has the same experience I did; some people need those support groups to get through. That’s why personal resilience is so important. It’s something that I’m still working on and I don’t think it can ever be perfected. I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing, it just means you’re human.
