I'm thinking I need to change my way of thinking. I've gone through many emotions in the past 20+ years of having trich. I've hated it, ignored it, accepted it again and again. And I think all those emotions are normal. But here's where my thinking needs to change... When it comes to wanting to fight trich it's normally because I hate the way I look or feel. Instead, I should want to fight trich because I love myself and want the best for me. Just like losing weight or something- I need to do it because I love myself and not because I hate myself. This type of thinking might take some time to change... especially since I'm prone to thinking negative. I tend to have that twisted thinking of " I'll love myself when..." or "I'll feel beautiful once I..." No- I need to love myself now, just the way I am. And love myself enough to change the things in my life that need to be changed.
