Hair Story by Kay: My natural hair and my family

I always had long relaxed hair. I decided to cut it a couple months ago and go back natural. My beloved Granny and my mother actually stopped speaking to me because it was their belief that “hair is beauty”. I refused to believe that I was no longer beautiful. Even to them. This created a gap that I constantly try to fill with them. I love them but I love my happiness more. Is that selfish?
