Embracing the Wig Life: Owning My Choices & Ditching the Naysayers



Let’s face it, we live in a society that has a rather persistent obsession with looks, and hair, well, it’s right up there on the list. The moment I decided to wear wigs, I knew I was opening myself up to a world of whispers, stares, and the perennial favorite - unsolicited advice. "Is that a wig?" "Why would you wear that?" - ah, the list goes on.

I remember the first time I donned a wig. The mirror reflected a changed person, not just on the outside, but also someone on the cusp of an internal metamorphosis. It was more than just about covering up hair loss or experimenting with styles. It was about reclaiming my confidence, feeling in control, and indulging in a personal choice that made ME feel good.

However, stepping out into the world, I quickly realized that while I was feeling like a million bucks, not everyone was on board the Wig Express with me. There were those who cast furtive glances, others who stared just a tad too long, and of course, the brave ones who felt it their moral duty to share their two cents on the matter.

But here's the twist in the tale. I found it increasingly comical. The more I felt the weight of their gazes, the lighter my heart became. Why? Because I realized something monumental: their opinions didn’t change how the wig made me feel. If anything, it highlighted the vast difference between my newfound euphoria and their trapped perceptions.

Over time, wearing wigs has taught me invaluable lessons. I’ve understood that comfort isn’t just a physical state but a mental one. Every morning, as I choose which wig to wear, I am also choosing the mood and confidence I am stepping into. And with every choice, I am declaring that I am bigger than the sum of societal opinions.

So, here's my two cents (since everyone's giving them out so freely!): Wear what makes you happy. Find your comfort. Own your choices. And most importantly, let’s redefine the standards of beauty, one wig at a time.

To all the fellow wig-wearers out there or anyone teetering on the edge of a decision fearing societal judgment, remember, life's too short to not do what makes you feel good. As for the naysayers, let them chatter. For in the grand theater of life, they're just background noise. Onwards and upwards, one strand at a time!
