Have you ever cut your hair off in anger or frustration? It may have a lot to do with being overwhelmed with whatever stressful situation was going on in your life at the time.
Cutting your hair is a type of release for many women and possibly even men. You may feel like you're getting ready to explode and can’t deal with life using regular coping mechanisms.
Feeling neglected, being teased, or being dumped by a guy is enough to make you want to chop and whack your luscious locks! All women from all walks of life have [probably] considered doing it at some time or point in their life. Its just what we do!
Have You Ever Cut Your Hair Off in Anger or Frustration?
Here’s my story.
I was 'politely' dismissed from a job illegally back in October of last year.
I was ‘let go’ from my job because I wasn’t in love with my 'business partner'. (Yes, you read that right!) He was allowed to do this because he owned the largest majority of the business!
I wouldn’t reciprocate his affections for me, and he just took my job away from me. What a jerk! I'd worked for 3 long years at that job, doing all the jobs he didn't want to make time for. What a frickin jerk! That left me without a job in one of the worst economies ever! Especially since I can’t work a regular 9 to 5 job because of my son’s learning disabilities.
So, last month I was in the middle of doing a new hair cutting video for youtube. I was going to demonstrate how to cut long bangs. I had my bangs parted off and I was halfway through the video when the phone rang, someone knocked at the door, and the walls started closing in on me.
All those pent up feelings about being let go from my job caught up with me. I'd devoted my heart and soul to the job and owned 30% of the company! I was mad, resentful, hurt, and angry. I felt like I was going to jump out of my skin!
The next thing I knew, I reached for my scissors and took my bang section in my hands and whack! Off they came. I cut my bangs of course, much shorter than I intended them to be and I basically ruined the video and my long bangs. (If only I’d have had the camera on!)
So I ditched the video and then looked back at my bangs. O-M-G! What had I done? So I started whacking them even more, trying to get some shape to them. I finally gave up and took a shower. Once I had my hair washed and dried, my bangs didn’t look as bad as I had originally thought but they were really short again. Not exactly what I had in mind!
If you haven't seen this video by Sugarland, you need to check it out. Its title is "Keep You" and shows Jennifer Nettles giving herself a bit of a trim in the end of the video. She's obviously been dumped by a man! Need I say more?
Here the thing. I know I’ve done this very thing before more than once in my life. Have you ever cut your hair off in anger or frustration? Please do tell us about what was going on in your life and share your story below.
