Someone asked me how I react when negativity is directed towards my hair and style and I simply say Martin Luther King said it best “Let no man pull you low enough to hate him.” People make fun of what they don’t understand, fear or something they want to attain but do not think it is possible to achieve for themselves. There is no need to retaliate with the same hate you are experiencing this will only bring you down to the same level and this is not where you should be. You are amazing and deserve to be uplifted to a higher plain.
You only have one life! Does it make sense to hide your true light to appease the comfortability level of someone who spews hate towards you because of your differences? This train of thought took years to fully understand and conceive but once I did a freedom and pride illuminated within me that no one can break. Your light is waiting for you. You just have to let go.
