This probably isn’t a big deal but I took my hijab off today in public for the first time and it was literally the best feeling ever. Before I was too scared to run in to people I knew but today I just said “fuck it” and I did it
It felt so good to feel the wind in my hair for the first time in over a decade
When I wore the hijab it made me so insecure that I always looked down and walked really quickly but today I felt so much more confident. I walked with my shoulders back, chin lifted, walked slower, and felt overall more positive
