I’m 50 Shades Of Greying…

So yesterday I woke up in the morning and stared at myself in the mirror like I usually do and to my horror I found a grey hair. It was terrifying and for a few seconds I just stood there refusing to believe that this was happening. And then I tried to see if it was really my hair or like a piece of thread stuck to my head. Unfortunately, it was my real hair.

So I messaged my friends about it and they were like don’t worry it’s not a big deal and one of my friends said she’s got a couple of grey hairs too which made me feel a lot better about the whole thing. The next thing I did was Google because that’s always my go to response to everything and I found out lots of people have grey hair early due to things like stress and for some people it’s just genetic. It’s sad that we put so much stress on children these days that they have grey hair as early as 10.

Anyway, I talked to my parents about it and apparently mine is probably hereditary because both my dad and sister got grey hairs really early on at about the same age as I am. I was thinking about plucking it out but decided to just leave it alone since it’s barely visible.

I have to admit that I didn’t think grey hair was something I would have to worry about anytime soon. I mean I thought I would be at least 30 before I got my first one. But now I’ve kind of made my peace with it. These days when bad things happen I just think that now I have one more story to tell people about or I got over one more bad thing which means that’s one less bad thing I have to deal with in the future.

Anyway I just wanted to share this little story with you guys because I feel like I haven’t done a post like this in quite a while and I also wanted to hear your thoughts on it too which I hope you’ll leave in the comments below. Do you have any grey hair? If so when did you start getting them??
