I love having red hair
"I used to hate it; in high school, people would make fun of me for it (especially when that South Park episode came out about "Ginger Kids"). I used to think I was ugly for having red hair, and being covered in hundreds of freckles.
But one day at work when I was around sixteen, a woman came up to me and said (I remember this verbatim) “Oh my god. Your hair is the most beautiful color I’ve ever seen. I love it. I love your freckles. I wish I had your color.” I thanked her, and she continued to compliment it. Because of that woman, I started to appreciate it more.
And now, five years later, I’m absolutely infatuated with it, and my lovely freckles that come with it.”
