16 Thoughts Every Girl Has When Deciding To Chop All Her Hair Off That Prove It's Life-Changing
Kelsey Dietrich

Every once in a while, a big change is needed. When making any change, it can be nerve-wracking and scary, especially when that change has to do with your appearance.

A prime example of this is deciding to chop your hair off.

It's different from the average hair cut because this cut involves SEVERAL INCHES OF HAIR rather than just one to clean things up every few months.

Here are 16 thoughts you have when you decide to chop your hair off once and for all.

1. I think I want to cut off all my hair.

*Wakes up one morning after having long hair for years and has this thought*

2. Who should I consult with first?

*Discusses this big life decision with anyone who will listen.*

3. So this is what it would look like...

The thought you have after pinning your long hair up in half to make it look like you have shorter hair.

4. I'm going for it!

The split second of confidence...

5. But it's just so long now and it took FOREVER to grow!

Years and years, AND YEARS!

6. It's just hair!

You keep telling yourself, over and over again.

7. And it will grow back.

So if it seems too short at first, just think... it's already starting to grow back!

8. I'm going to donate my hair. 

The idea of donating helps solidify the plan of actually getting enough hair cut off to be able to do this.

9. But my hair is SO LONG.

Even the more reason to get it cut.

10. I'm making my appointment. 

Can't back out of an appointment that's been made at a salon.

11. Today's the day!

It's go-time!

12. One last wash with all of this hair. 

Honestly, washing long hair is exhausting.

13. One braid has already been cut off, so there's no going back now.

There's nothing left to do but chop the other side!

14. Wowza, that's A LOT of hair. 

And I'm holding my braids in my hand.

15. It looks great!

Just like when you clipped all your long hair up to make it short... only now it's for real!

16. I think I might want it even a little shorter...

There's no fear in getting a haircut now!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
