All I did was cut my hair

My most recent photo

My hair had grown really long and although I was loving it I knew that the remnants of my blonde stage (from almost two years ago) needed to go. Those dead bits HAD to go.

So on Saturday I went to the hairdresser and let him cut the last of my blond out. I'm now left with shoulder length hair. I know hair grows back and hopefully this time ill be able to keep it healthy but this hair cut reminds me of myself about 8 years ago. Eight year ago me that was always unsure about herself and hated how she looked.

This weekend I've been complaining about my hair, because honestly I don't feel myself and I don't think it is the best length or style on me. But instead of going on about how much I dislike it, I'm going to have to embrace it. I don't want to be a drag about it. At the end of the day its only hair.

I'm going to find cute hairstyles for my shorter hair and try to enjoy it. I've realised that since growing my hair long over the past 3 years, that my long hair had became my safety net. Why does long hair have to be the main symbol of femininity? I have to get over it and stop stereotyping myself.

Have you ever struggled when cutting your hair off? Did you loose your sense of identity?

I know its not even classed as a short hair cut. I just need to get on with it and get to know my new image/self!
