The older I get, the more it bothers me. I hold it all in. I wear hats and hoodies while I work as a bartender and manager of the bar I work at. As each day progresses I find the beauty within myself as I see others focus on my hat. When will the day come where I am free from these chains that I've put on myself? I limit my work aspirations - because I live in fear of being ridiculed and stared at for all the wrong reasons. As a kid I was loud, boisterous. As an adult I'm hiding more and more. I just want the confidence and freedom to be myself. When I talk to someone I want them to look at my eyes, not my mottled, bald head. I'm frustrated...limited...ashamed...ugh.

I know exactly how you feel. I find myself doing the same thing. I'm trying to stop it, but it's so hard. I've started trying to push myself out there but it's one of the hardest things I've had to do. It's made even worse by the fact that I recently just moved to a new town where I don't know anyone and became a stay at home mom. That makes it so much easier for me to hide in the shadows and stay away from people but it's not what I want to be doing. I guess I'm not one to give advice when I'm going through the same thing but keep trying to push yourself out there and find comfort with your friends. Your true friends don't care and will see you for you.

Best of luck to you!
