I didn't start to grow long hair until I was in my 50's and I had a bit of envy everytime I spotted a longhair. But I started and now I am one.
Just remember, every one of those longhairs you see was exactly in your shoes when they started out.
Growing ones hair out is a lesson in patience.
: Hey guys.. Avi here again. I'm having a bit of a psychological issue with my hair I guess.
: My goal is to grow my hair to my hip, but I've always had very restrictive parents and so I was never able to pursue that dream although I've wanted to do it all my life. In March 2018 I finally was able to convince them and I began growing my hair out. Its around my shoulders now, its still pretty short as its only been a year.
: My issue comes from whenever I see people with waist length hair. I run into people with waist length hair either online or in real life, and I always feel really low when I see them. Its been my dream to have hair like theirs since I was a kid, yet I was never able to pursue it, and I wasted so much time not growing it out. If I had started growing it out when I wanted to, I definitely would be at my hip now. it just makes me feel so bad, and I feel so low esteem about my hair since its so short and only at my shoulder, and they all have such long hair. I know it seems super petty and trivial, but i really do feel significantly bad and low inside whenever I see very long haired people. :( Nothing against them obviously, they just make me feel like a failure I guess. its gonna be years before I reach that goal...how do I cope till then?
: Thanks everyone,
