It was Tuesday October 10th at 3:30pm when my world changed. I went from this bubbly, fun bleach blonde to a timid, self loathing broken girl. I didn’t feel like me anymore, which is hard for some people to understand. When I posted my video I was afraid but everyone responded with such love it made me realize how lucky I am to have you, all of you, in my life. I am feeling more confident by the day. Thank you ❤️ I wanted to give a special thanks to everyone at @vanity.bystacygodwin 💇 thank you my beautiful love @outcastcity who shaved his head last night so I wouldn’t feel alone, I can’t tell you how much that meant to me❤️ Thank you to my family and thank you to my best friend @danarosee I don’t know what I’d do without you👯
