Hello, my name is Teresa. I'm 39 years old, and bald by choice. I have to say, it's the best decision I've ever made. It's changed me for the better.
I have worn my hair short ever since I can remember. There were times I wanted to go shorter, but I wouldn't because I was afraid of what people would say. With encouragement I went shorter and finally had it shaved bald. I looked in the mirror and for the first time in my life I liked what I saw. I felt beautiful.
It's now been a little over a year since then. I still shave it and still love it. The best thing about it is the feeling of freedom. I feel free to be myself. I stopped caring about what people think or say. I am me...finally. It's also made me a stronger person. I feel that if I'm able to do this I can do anything.
I never would have thought that shaving my head would create such a change in me. For those who don't like it I say this...this is me, and I'm happy.
Bald is beautiful. Embrace it.
