Do you dare to be (baldly) DIFFERENT?
I want to share my first experience of being bald in public last Sunday. For a split second, I wonder if I would make people feel uncomfortable but I realised the deeper reason is I was uncomfortable with people associating me with being sick. My hair is not totally gone yet which made me stand out. Lucky, Kim kept me grounded by saying,”Who cares?”. Bless her 🙂
I reflected on it, accepted it and move forward. Cancer is not who I am, it is just a part me and my life story. Who we are is bigger than that and the world need to see all these different stories of us that make us who we are.
My friend asked me if people were starring at me. I replied,” I have no clue, I was busy doing my own thing.” lol
For my cancer friends out there, do you go out bald in public or you would rather people not know about you being sick?
I know that I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. There is nothing to be sorry for. So far, cancer has been a blessing that taught and given me so much. My relationship with my mum and my friends has gone to the next level. The way I see life has changed drastically. And, it is just the beginning…
