the NEW me :)

Since I was 19, I've always wanted to have short hair but I was too afraid of what I would look like. For all my cattiness and words, I'm actually quite the coward.

Some things happened over the weekend that made me realize that a lot of the things that have held me back are actually nothing. I just allowed it to hold me back but in reality, I could just let it go just like that.

So I did.

The new hair symbolizes the new me. The layers that were chopped off, the foot of hair ... it all had to come off to give way to a better me. Last night, I had a talk with FM and I let go of a lot of things.

I used to be afraid to cut my hair. After 17 years, I finally did and it felt liberating. Not only was I able to accomplish something that I have been wanting to do for 17 years but I have also been finally able to let go of all the angst, pain, worry, and fear in my heart.

I let go of the unrealistic dreams, the ideals about love that will never be, and the fantasies. I am more realistic now and therefore, I know what to do to love myself more. 

To a new me ... to a better me.
