What makes you authentic and who gets to decide? I can guarantee you it isn’t someone else’s perception of what you should do or be. Nor is it another woman’s opinion of how you should look. This week I’ve run across a few instances of women justifying their personal choices, by taking swipes at other women. Comments and declarations that dig, judge and criticize. What’s up with that? Who is looking insecure when that happens?
I’ve read several places this week that if you’re a woman who colors your gray hair, you’re not authentic. You’re hiding something or trying to look younger. You’re hoping to trick people into thinking something about you that isn’t true.
Does that mean I shouldn’t shave my underarms and legs or pluck my eyebrows and chin hair? Am I trying to fool people when I do that? How about when I wear things that make me appear slimmer? How far can you stretch that stupidity?
I’m not coloring my hair look younger. I’m doing it to improve my appearance. My gray hair is silver and it’s washing my complexion out. I use lowlights to add contrast and make me look better.
Because that’s what matters. How I feel about how I look!
If you want to go gray, bravo. It’s your choice and none of my business. Your choice does not make you more authentic than I am. It just makes you, you.
Come on ladies, let’s support each other.
What do you think?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
