SHE MAKES REALLY GOOD, POSITIVE POINTS ! HAVE A READ!
I started covering my hair way back in 2013, and posted about my reasons when I started. Since then I’ve gone from covering full-time to covering sporadically to going right back to covering full-time again.
Through those changes and over that time my initial covering reasons (piety, modesty, and feminism) haven’t substantially changed. Something I didn’t know when I started, though, is how beneficial covering would turn out to be for my mental health*. It’s been quite the experience!
I’ve seen improvement in these three key areas:
- Self-Esteem and Self-Care
- Emotional Vulnerability and Boundaries
- Social Anxiety and Depression Management
So let’s talk about those.
Self-Esteem and Self-Care
Saying that I had low self-esteem in the past would be misleading. I know what I’m good at, where I shine, and playing to my strengths is second nature. I’ve never had a problem accepting that I’m an awesome person with a lot to offer the world.
