Take the Gravel and Make a Pearl

So a friend of mine posted on a controversial topic. Another guy commented with a counter argument and I responded with some data from a statistical analysis. I was respectful and did not make any personal stabs. Evidently he didn’t have a come back so he replied with the comment seen in the picture bellow.

A personal stab because he didn’t know what to say. First I was offended then I kinda laughed cause I could actually see the Billy Idol meets lesbian resemblance.

I proceeded to tell the guy he was a jerk and that my hair was this way cause it was growing out from chemo. He was mortified that I had been through treatments and that he had made fun of me. He apologized profusely and deleted his comments after making sure I read his apology. That is why I blacked out his name. Hopefully it can be a good lesson not to judge a book by its cover and to respect each other even if you are debating. There is never an excuse for personal stabs. Why was he so upset when he found out my hair was short due to health issues instead of choice? The damage his words could have caused were the same… but you never know what is going on in someone else’s life or how your words could affect them. Lucky for me I love my Billy Idol lesbian hair and could care less what some dude I never met thinks… But that is me. Many women who lost their hair do not feel the same way. They feel less then and unbeautiful with short hair. His words could have devastated someone else. I hope he learned a lesson and hope he can find healing from whatever has made him so bitter. Please don’t be him!

And you know what?! I may look a bit like Billy Idol but you know who else I have been told I look like and really really do?? P!nk, and she is basically the coolest chick who has ever lived. Se had some wonderful advice for her daughter about bullying… So stay proud and strong fellow warriors! You are beautiful no matter what others may say!

“I said ‘Do you see me growing my hair?’ She said, ‘No, mama.’ I said, ‘Do you see me changing my body?’ ‘No, mama.’ ‘Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?’ ‘No, mama.’ ‘Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?’ ‘Yes, Mama.’ ‘OK! So, baby girl. We don’t change. We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty.” – P!nk

  1. You absolutely do look like Pink, and I love that. I have bows tattooed on the backs of my thighs, because I adored her so much when I was younger that I had to have them. You are so amazing and strong, and I love your heart. <3
