The poster reads:

"Don’t ever cut your hair. It’s the only nice thing about you."

I did cut my hair, right after because it felt defiled and I wanted to prove something to myself.
That was seven years ago.
I recently started dating a wonderful guy. My first relationship at the age of 24.
The other day he told me I wasn’t like the other girls he’s dated. When I asked him, “How so?”, the first thing out of his mouth was, “Well for one thing you have short hair.”
I’m taking it as a sign that my attacker was dead wrong.

I don’t remember a word you said, but I remember your disgusting smirk, like you were proud of what you’d done.

I’m here to say that I’ve taken it back.

"Is that why you’re a lesbian?"

-friends I confided in

"Oh come on, you know you don’t actually want me to stop.”

"It couldn’t hurt. I know what I’m doing."

-Female romantic lovers

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that everyone else is at fault, not me.

Sometimes it just doesn’t seem possible that they were all wrong, that I didn’t do anything to deserve it.

But I didn’t; I know that somewhere, it’s just not always at the surface.

But it’s slowly rising.

It will get there.

I will rise.
