If there is one belief that I would really like to see us alopecian challenge, is when we start referring to our inner beauty as if our outer beauty couldn’t exist anymore.
I think that the thing that brings me the most joy is when an alopecian can truly start to see their beauty again. But, over and over again, I see us making comments like, “it’s our inner beauty, not our outer beauty that counts”, as if we have forfeit our rights to be beautiful the moment we lost our hair.
I understand that when we lose our hair it is devastating, I can clearly recall that time in my life. But how do we change our perspective and broaden our views on what beauty is?
I realize that this can be a controversial discussion, so I ask that we please share our true feelings but also be respectful to each other and differing opinions.
