Tuesday Tunes: I Am Not My Hair

Many of us strongly identify with our bodies and our appearance. I am no different. It’s hard to detach from this identification as many of us have been taught we are how we look. I find women especially can be extremely self-critical and base their self-esteem on their looks.

Holding onto this identification does not serve in our best interest. In fact it does quite the opposite. It can lead to shame, worry, anxiety, self-loathing or even depression.
Listen to this song and remember that the real you is more than your hair, your skin, your body or anything else that people can see. 
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations no no
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am a soul that lives within
