just do it. Or don't.
For years and year and years and years women have debated whether they wanted to allow their hair to go natural, or color it. (This same discussion happens regarding women wearing or not wearing make-up too, but I'm 70, I just had my hip replaced, I only have the energy for one "discussion" at a time . . . so insert the gripe of your choice).
The "discussion" ALWAYS ends up with someone(s) getting their back up.
WHY are some women insistent that you MUST color your hair?
Why are some insistent that natural is the ONLY way to go?
WHY is your way the ONLY way?
oh, Bull. Shit.
Be a brazen brunette.
Or a ravishing redhead.
Or a Barbie blond.
Rose-gold or lavender streaks.
Bald as a baby's butt.
Long or short.
Do what you will,
Do what you want.
But Sweet Jesus, let others do for themselves without you butting in.
I've had to listen to "who wants hair the color of a sweatshirt?"
I've had to listen to "don't you miss your red hair?"
I've had good "friends" say "your hair looked SO much better short."
Did I ask your opinion?
You know - I think everyone who knows me knows exactly, unequivocally, without a doubt, abso-fucking-lutely, just how I feel about unsolicited advice.
In this age of women (supposedly) supporting other women
WHY is this even a thing?
Wear age in-appropriate (whatever that means) clothes if you're comfortable and you feel as though they look good.
Wear CFM stilettos if you want - OR orthopedic shoes if you choose.
But here's my last word on all this.
I do exactly as I wish and I wish you would too.
