After A Break-up

I had an ex-girlfriend who loved my long dark curls. She touched them all the time, she talked about them to her friends, and she would bury her face into them when we cuddled, etc. I had expressed an interest in cutting my hair several times in her presence, which was met with her begging and pleading for me to never cut my hair.

Well, long story cut short (no pun intended): We had a nasty break-up, I moved away and chopped every bit of my hair off.

It was shorter than it had ever been in my life and I loved it. It represented such a freedom to me- a freedom from her, a freedom from the "old me". I'm now letting my hair grow back after 3 years of keeping it shorter. I think I'm ready.
