Let me start off by saying that I am not one to make impulsive decisions and I always think long and hard about them, but I also sometimes have a hard time pulling the trigger and trying things, even if I really want to.
I'll try to keep this as short as possible, because I tend to write a book.
The pros of cutting my hair would be:
-Getting rid of the dead and thin ends
-Getting rid of most of the old dyed hair that's grown out (it looks ombre right now and I'm not wild about it)
-Adding more shape to my hair
-Making it more manageable (huge plus for me)
The cons are:
-Losing around 3" of length (making it just below the shoulders)
-Possibly regretting it
-Going somewhere I'm not familiar with (any hair shop, as I haven't had my hair professionally cut in several years) and having them mess it up or cut it way too short
-Drawing unwanted attention to myself (I'm very shy and timid and feel very nervous when people bring a change I've made in my appearance to attention, so I try to stay the same- part of my anxiety)
Now that I think about it, some of my cons are kind of silly, but they are things I worry about. As far as the last con goes, my family is the type to make a huge deal out of small things and it embarrasses the hell out of me when they are all like "OMG, DID YOU SEE HER HAIR? LOOK, SHE CHANGED IT!" I hate being the center of attention and it makes me really uncomfortable when they try to draw attention to me.
Sorry for the rambling and for the book! What do you think would be the best option? I know it is my hair and ultimately my decision, but sometimes I need help making choices like these, kind of like when there are two dishes that sound really good on a restaurant menu, but you don't know which one to pick, haha. Thanks in advance!

Hair is an accessory. I cut my hair 2 months ago, and I don't regret it at all. It will grow back. I cut my hair, because I wanted to start over, and be natural. I cut it super short, but it suits me. I'm a very versatile woman when it comes to hairstyles. I can rock short, med., and long do's.1
