I Am A Transitioner Traitor
Wow. I haven't posted a thread in foreverrrr.
Well, Ladies it looks like I am going to gracefully bow out of transitioning and becoming natural altogether. I actually just stopped in the middle of flat ironing my hair because I am tired and it's so time consuming -- my last straw has just been used.
My one year post relaxer is coming up in Feb. and I just feel like it has been all a waste of time to now realize I can't do this to myself anymore. & by 'this' I mean the emotional toll on myself of the process and transition to natural. Yes, it is very emotional. I can truthfully say my mind has been 'trained' to believe what is considered beautiful...and to my mind what is growing out of my head is not beautiful. I need to work on myself and also the true meaning of beauty as a person...then later I can say yes, I am ready to do this again with a fresh mind state.
The problem is....if I back out my family will be disappointed and I will look like a traitor. I am the one who was all for going natural at first and my spirit even convinced three of my close family members to join me. & now I am the one that's is ready to be done with it all.
How can I break to my family in a nice way that I do not want to go natural anymore?
(Yes, the ladies in my family can get very feisty, so I really don't know how to break it to them without getting any static from them.)
