“I’ve Had to be Okay with Being Invisible to Men” |Wednesday’s Word

I absolutely love this article!

Here’s what I know: I’m cute and I have a great figure. Whoever sees me, sees me. Those to whom I am invisible didn’t merit my time in the first place.–Carolyn Edgar

I believe every woman who returns to natural hair via the big chop goes thorough what Carolyn went through. Although she went from mid-back length locs to a TWA, rather than from relaxed to natural hair, the shock of seeing one in a different way can be traumatizing and spur regrets if one does not do it for the right reasons…that reason (in my humble opinion) being because they want to! I think it makes you develop character, self acceptance and leads to self confidence.
