I’m starting to come to terms with the fact that within a year I might be bald due to alopecia areata
This does not scare me.
This whole situation has changed my outlook on life. It’s weird that this happened because it’s just hair… But this is honestly one of the hardest things I have ever gone through. It’s about 1000x harder then having gone through transition. It feels like I’m losing a loved one… Like I’m loosing a part of myself.
I spent so long trying to attain the perfect version of femininity (e.g long hair, beautiful nails makeup ect) but FOR WHAT?
Our society has imprinted this figment idea of beauty, that women should have long luscious locks, flawless skin ect.
True beauty comes from inside.
I might be loosing my hair. But I’m not loosing myself.
I won’t be defined by the dead proteins on my head. I am beautiful.
