Alexis Acire - I decided to become bald when I decided to value myself rather than everything and everyone else in my life.
Congratulations to our New Bald Beauty of the Week 4/12/2015-4/18/2015 Ms. Alexis Acire
Why are you BALD? I decided to become bald when I decided to value myself rather than everything and everyone else in my life. After having experienced a horrible situation being sexually assaulted by an ex-boyfriend in college, I realized that I needed to re-evaluate my perspective on life and who I wanted to become. I realized that I was giving myself to things and to people without having loved myself first. I had no personal value because I had given it all away. Shaving my head was the first step in taking control of my actions and placing value on myself. I took a horrible situation and turned it into a learning experience. I was able to deal with the unpacked baggage and dead weight I carried around with me, but letting go of everything that did not make me, ME.
When did you realize that Hair didn't determine your beauty? I realized that hair didn't define or determine my beauty the moment after I accepted myself for the things I had done, struggles and situations I had gone through and decisions I had made. My beauty was determined by the value and love I have for myself, rather than the value others placed on me, or took from me. Beauty starts from within. When you are secure and love yourself there is nothing that can be taken from you.
