What is something you’ve desperately wanted to do, but always prevented yourself from doing it because what other people would think? Here to tell you to just do it. Throw off the weight of what society thinks because at the end of the day, it’s only between you and God. For me, the tip of the iceberg was wanting to shave the side of my head. I feared what others would think. I feared that it wouldn’t look good. I had to come to a certain point, recognize what was holding me back, and say, “It’s just hair. It’ll grow back.” What lies underneath is much deeper: for instance, the battle to get back into shape, the decision to go back to work and let my husband be [a freaking amazing] stay at home dad, and more.
Don’t let others dictate your life. Be brave. Be courageous. Don’t fear failure. Go against the norm. Fight the stigma. And all that jazz.
And do it with confidence, because if you don’t, others won’t perceive it in confidence.
