I Cut My Hair to Fight My Depression

His social media was chock full of pictures of him and random women with long, dark hair. I was a cookie cutter.

I, like my friend, wanted to be invisible. I had long joked that my hair held all my sex appeal. So I shot that plane out of the sky. I cut my hair to hide from men.

I realized my hair was for me. That seems ridiculous. But, it was part of my self confidence. It was something I could do right.

Flaming pinball, nerd, music lover, wine snob, horrible violin player. No, I won’t stop taking pictures of my drinks. vanessaltorre@gmail.com IG: vanessaltorre
