    Default You know what I really love about LHC?

    I wasn't sure where to post this, hope nobody minds me posting it here.

    Anyway, I've been trawling the site (as usual) and I realised why I love it here so much. Not just because I get to dream of having hair like hers or yours or theirs ; not because of all the enabling ; and not because of all the bad hair days it's rescued me from. I love it here because it's a real haven from a world that seems to be stripped of solid values, sense of self and identity, and it is overflowing with people doing things their own way - people who have decided that they don't have to give in to every media fad that dictates to the masses how we should look to fit in and feel good about ourselves.

    There's such a variety of people and lifestyles reflected on these boards. It reminds me that acceptance of differences is what brings us together. People here worry about ageing, family problems, health issues, bad hair days, jobs, money, spiritual paths, disputes with neighbours... And it's wonderful Yeah, sometimes we all worry about whether our backsides look bigger in those jeans or whether we'll be accepted when we move somewhere new, but reading through these boards I feel like there are people with perspective left in the world, people with a sense of what matters.

    I'm going to shut up now. I had a bit of a moment there! But does anyone else feel like this about stuff? I hope I've explained it properly and that it didn't sound like a rant because I really didn't mean it that way, I meant it as a very positive thing!

    I certainly agree. I love the diversity in perspectives. And I absolutley love seeing people who don't always have to follow the "latest trend" (which I see enough at school, haha). One year, it may be long layers that are in, and so all the short haired people start growing their hair, and by the time it is long, bobs are in, so its time to cut it all off again. Sigh. Yup, it is certainly nice to see people who don't follow the crazy-train .

    You could not have said it better, Silver & Gold, and some of those people are very special!

    Yes, we are truly a community, and some of us miss that in real life.
