I have this friend. She has an opinion about what I “should” do in nearly every area of my life. The only areas where she doesn’t weigh in are in more private matters, but that’s only because I keep them private. Do you have anyone in your life like this friend of mine?
Not too long ago she asked me what I thought about letting my hair go grey. When I gave her my reasons for coloring it – I like my hair the color it is, it has more body and looks thicker when I color it, my husband likes it and doesn’t care about the money I’m wasting :), I feel younger without the grey – it was as though I hit a nerve as she began giving me a long list of reasons why I SHOULD go grey, topping the list off by telling me I can’t really like the person God created me to be if I can’t accept the way He created me.
