The World is Breaking Down

What is it about hair and symbolism?

I almost cut off all of my hair last night, including all of my 7 dreads, 6 of which are still babies. When something good ends in your life, it's like cutting off your hair is a symbol of what you have lost. What are some of the times where you have or have almost cut off your hair/dreads for a symbolic reason? If you did cut them, did you regret it or was it a relief? If you didn't cut them, are you glad you waited until you were thinking more clearly to make such a drastic decision?

Edit// I'm glad I didn't cut off my hair, in the end. Dreads are something I have wanted for a very long time and I finally have some and they deserve the chance to see more of my life.
