It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
Sometimes I try to understand where they are coming from and why they are asking because they don’t know what it’s like to go through anything like this or know how it feels to be judged. But on the other hand, I was raised to never look at someone as different no matter what and I think having alopecia has also helped that due to the fact that we DO know what it’s like so we would never want to put someone in a similar situation that we fear. This site has been nothing but helpful in getting things off my chest and talking with others who understand so thank you!
I think many of us have been asked if we have cancer, but I think the oddest 'call-out' I've gotten was someone asking me if i was in a car accident or had brain surgery. I think its normal to get upset, and useless to deny that that's your true feeling about the situation. What matters is can you move past that, and not dwell in it. The fact that you're able to regroup is great. I think people that say they don't get upset about it are probably kidding themselves, or maybe what they really mean is they don't STAY upset about it, which I can relate to much better.
Brain surgery? Car accident?
Wow... people can be harsh man.
People in general don't realize the impact of their words.
man A holes be A holes.... just remember its them not you.. they are literally casting their negative energy onto someone in an attempt to get the positive energy ( you ) to turn negative like them...
my mantra I picked up from T Harv Eker ( "thanks for sharing" ... then in one ear out the other )
he's just trying to get to you as he doesn't like himself, just remember that when this happened again and in one ear out the other.. can't change an A hole so best is to not them them get you as that's what they want.. you win if you don't let it affect you..
another way to see it, is this going to matter in ten years? NO, so why wait, let it go and fill that space with more positive vibes..
sorry that happened, but the world is full of insensitive people and our job is to just ignore them, being a nice person doesn't mean you can't walk way or get away or ignore bad people.. thats called standing up for yourself and having respect for yourself.. nothing wrong with that.. Oprah once said, " you teach people how to treat you"...
For what it's worth I think you look pretty cool!
