Thanks so much for getting in touch. We are glad you reached out as it takes a lot of courage to open up about your situation and brutal bullying. It sounds like you’re experiencing some conflicting views, and it’s okay to feel a bit stuck on decision-making in the midst of it all.
We are sorry to hear that even though you like to keep your hair long, you think you should get it cut as a result of others’ opinions and bullying. Your feelings are valid, and your hair is a significant part of your identity. Whatever the length and style, hair plays an important role in how we choose to define and express ourselves.
Additionally, it’s important to prioritise your mental and emotional well-being over others’ opinions. Coping mechanisms, such as practicing self-care activities or finding a creative outlet, can also help you through this challenging time. Here are some ideas you could try www.childline.ie/5-ways-to-practice-self-care-every-week/
