I’ve been growing my hair out and I now almost always wear lipstick, earrings and mascara.
I got a shampoo and blow dry last week.
I asked the stylist to take some photos.
I really liked one and worked up the nerve to send it to my confidantes. All GG’s, close to 15. Only one had seen me in such timid femininity.
I was almost stunned at their replies.
Lots of congratulations for expressing myself and being me. “You look great, you look happy!” Two of them said you look more feminine than masculine.
It’s been wonderful to have their acceptance and support, but this takes it up several more notches.
Thursday I have a mani-pedi, brow wax appointment. It’s a big salon..I’ve had 5 different nail ladies, and waiting room and check out staff know of course. As well as two additional stylists I knew before I opened up.
Compliments are like drugs. You never get enough and each time encourages another step into the open feminine.
