People are so presumptuous, I am utterly amazed, time and again by how many people who think it is their God-given right to weigh in on what other grown folks should do…amazed…case in point, I have friends and family who think that what I do or don’t do with my hair is their business…is I grow it long, there are those who think I should cut it short, umm hmm because they think I look better with it short, if I cut it short there are those who genuinely think I need them to tell me it should have been left longer or I should have cut it even shorter…umm hmm, a few months ago I tried to loc my hair, it didn’t work well and frankly I didn’t like how I looked, so I said, ummm noo…immediately there were suggestions of add hair and make it work…no thanks…that is most def, not me…can’t see paying for hair when in six months I can grow several inches, to each his own…you do your thing, I got me…then here is the one that slayed me, someone said, I just couldn’t stand being ‘natural’ HELLLLLOOOOOOOO, are you kidding me, I have not had a chemical anywhere near my head in 22 years…now natural do I need to be, or is the fact that my hair curls of it’s own volition, not seem natural to those whose hair doesn’t…come on people…
Then there are those who felt it was thier business to take exception because my grandbaby calls me Nana instead of grandma, they felt it actually had something to do with them and they took it upon themselves to say, ‘there is nothing wrong with grandma…’ are you kidding me, when did what goes on between me and my grandbaby become anyone one’s business other than ours and her parents…surely people have more to do than be concerned about that…
Now I got to get to my church folk, so many feel they should tell the Pastor what to preach how to preach and when to preach, not only that, they have determined that how the Pastor’s wife dresses is their personal business…are you serious?
The presumptuousness of people is too much for me…I truly don’t care how people wear they hair, what their husbands or grandchildren call them, what the Pastor preaches as long as it is true to the Word of God is okay with me…people really need to get them some…business…to be sure…
