As you know, I got my hair cut yesterday. I've gotten some interesting comments today. Ok, one. Almost all the comments were positive. I'm sure it was somewhat a shock to others to see my hair short, compared to just yesterday. The one guy was just horrified I got it cut off. LOL. And it kind of hurt my feelings at first... but I got over it quickly. But it got me to thinking... why do we care what others think? More importantly, why do I?
Growing up, I was always compared to Sis... in some way or another. That's just because we are twins. And I know that... I even knew that when I was young. But I think I care what others think because when I was a kid everything I did was measured up against her. Kind of an odd thing, if you think about it. When you're a kid you don't understand why they are doing it. I don't even think they realized it, most of the time. But what I do usually goes through the litmus test of what others think. Actually, I don't like that. I've been working on how I handle it when someone tells me I "should" do something or another. This is like that.
Don't get me wrong, I have NO problems with Sis or how others relate to us. It was a learning experience, and it is apparently something I'm still learning from even today. So, I'm not sure *I* know what to think of my new haircut yet... but I'm trying my best to look at it through my own eyes and no one elses. :)
