To any stranger, that fact I cut my hair off is no big deal. They don’t know what I looked like before the chop, therefore they have no reason to judge the outcome.
To my friends and family, of course, it will take time for them to get used to my new look. And I’m sure there are a few of them, if not many, who believe I looked way better with my hair long.
To me, however, the act of cutting my long locks off is huge! And if you’re a woman with long hair (that qualifies at least 50% of female population) it’s huge to you too.
And you know it.
