Hello beautiful humans, it’s been a minute since I’ve been here. I hope your 2018 started on a high note and you’re keeping up with your hair. First of all, I would like you to know that I will be making some changes to my blog; y’all will be getting two posts weekly (every Wednesday and Friday). I will be writing posts on self care (hair, skin) and posts on my thoughts about the social issues we face (e.g colorism) and what I pick up from books I read and life in general. I hope that you are excited because this is going to be an interesting journey for us.
Today I am starting off with wax. I know this may sound weird but it isn’t. Let us look at wax as an analogy in our lives. So one way or another you’ve had an experience with wax; either with candle wax or hair removal wax. I know I am not the only one that played with candles and let the wax drop on their hands (the thrill). Anyway, what I am trying to say here is when wax comes into contact with our bodies, there is a level of pain we feel; I don’t have to describe the horror of wax strips getting in contact with your skin.
Now let is get to the analogy. We all have in one way or another had fake friends in our lives. I have had plenty of them and truth be told, it has been hard to get rid of them because of fear of loneliness. I have had to force myself to cut these people out completely. My inspiration was from the experience of waxing; it is painful to remove those hairs but after, there is a feeling of satisfaction and freedom. What I am trying to tell you is do not be afraid to let go of toxic friendships. As much as it might be painful to do so now, you will heal and you will thank yourself for making the best decisions ever.
I hope you’ve learnt one or two things from this post, if you have, kindly share and follow the blog for more update. Remember that if you have any toxic/fake relationships in your life, WAX THEM!
