bald women

"The only thing preventing you from doing something you love, is you."
It always shocks people when I tell them I'm bald. They typically don't believe it until I show them pictures of me without a wig on. It's ironic because when I had hair, I was a very insecure person. Our society bases so much of our self esteem on how we look, but once how you "look" is taken away from you, you have to learn a new ideal of what self esteem is.
