Dear Forehead.

Welcome to it.

Today we continue our Dear body conversation. And today I am addressing my forehead. Yes my forehead.

Dear Forehead,

Growing up I never thought you were an issue or a problem but as I got older people seemed to have a comment or a joke about you. It didn’t bother me much but after some time I started having hairstyles to hide you.

I hid you because of others opinions and small-minded thinking. I gave people the power to change how I think and feel about you, and I am sorry. Sorry for allowing their words to affect my relationship with you.

This went on into my high school years, I hid you more and more until one day I found me. I know it took me a while but I have found me. I am sorry it took so long, but I am so happy, content, comfortable and confident that you are mine.

So content to the point that I shaved my head in 2010, so confident that I only have my hair short, so comfortable that I can have you out all day, any day.

So Forehead, I am sorry that I was embarrassed and ashamed of you. I am sorry that I allowed people’s opinions to affect me, I am sorry I wasn’t strong enough to just be me. I am sorry.

Today, I embrace you, I love you and I appreciate having you size and all.

Sincerely yours,
Me.
Your owner.
