When you are down and out, it can be hard to care about yourself. But we have those people who come to us just at the right time.
Everything Happens For A Reason
I was having a horrible day, and scanning Facebook. In my scanning, I ran across a post offering free haircuts. Thinking it was about time for one, I figured why not. I schedule my appointment for the following week. I was hoping it would give me enough time to settle my anxiety, but I was totally wrong.
The day finally came, and I found myself sitting in my car for a good ten minutes not sure if I wanted to go in. My life had lost meaning. I was barely able to hold on to what little bit I did have left. I didn’t want to face anyone, I didn’t want to deal with anything. I had found myself at the end of my rope. It was just days before Christmas and I could have cared less. Even with all of that going on, I couldn’t leave the poor stylist in the dark. I made a commitment and was going to go in.
Although it did take me another couple of minutes to get out of the car, I finally was able to. As I walked across the parking lot, there was a stylist fixing a few things up, as I got closer, she asked if there was anything she could help with. Of course, though, I was not sure so I forced out the fact that I had an appointment. And it happened to be her I had the appointment with. Sadly, my first thought was, oh great, she is super chatty and I am really not in the mood. I was so wrong though.
Nerves For Nothing
Gabriella turned out to be one of the sweetest women I have met. She treated me as if she had known me for years. Talking to me about life in general, asking me what it was I was hoping for in the long run for my hair. I slowly started to relax and enjoy the fact that for the time of the appointment, it was all about me and what I wanted. Which living in a house of all males is not a common thing.
Worked Out Well
During the appointment itself, Gabriella was so patient and willing to help me make the choices for myself. I knew what I wanted to do, I just wasn’t sure of myself. I came in looking like a huge mess, feeling not only like a mess, but a huge failure as a mom, wife, and a woman in general. To be honest, I wanted to give up and just find a deep dark hole. But by the end of the appointment, I felt so much better. I felt like I could take on the world.
