Yes, girl!! I very much relate with my curly hair journey.
I’ve found that when we curly-haired folks wear our natural hair with confidence, the world seems to receive it positively. And for those who don’t like it, oh well. Because when we wear our curly/kinky hair with pride, there are kids (and adults) receiving the message that their curly/kinky hair is beautiful too ❤
Thanks so much Yael ❤ I’m glad I freed myself too! For so long the word ‘abuse’ seemed taboo to me. I think I was afraid that if I admitted it was abuse I’d feel powerless but in reality, it was quite the opposite.
Thank you Agnes. You are always so kind and supportive. Yeah, it’s been years now and an immense amount of healing has happened. I have a stronger sense of self now. The journey was a painful one, but I feel so grateful to be on the other side. A new light has been awakened in me. Sending hugs back to you wonderful lady ❤
