Sameera opened the note revealing that her father recently asked her why she never dyes her white hair. The actor continued saying that she defended her choice and explained to him that with time, she has grown comfortable with her mane and dyes them when she feels like it.
The caption of her post read, "My dad asked me why I'm not covering my white hair. He was worried about people judging me. I answered 'So what if they did...Did it mean I'm old. Not pretty. Not groomed. Not appealing?' I told him that I'm not paranoid about it like I I used to be and that freedom is liberating. I used to color every 2 weeks so nobody could catch that line of white."
The actor continued, "Today I take my own sweet time and choose to color if and when I feel like. He asked me why I should be the one to change the conversation? I said why not. I know I'm not alone. The shift and acceptance only begins when old thought processes are broken. When we can just let each other be. When confidence can just find it's way naturally and not hidden behind a mask or cover. My dad understood. As I understood his concern as a father. Everyday we learn we move forward and we find peace in small shifts. And it's those small steps that take us to much bigger places."
Sameera's conversation with her father will surely motivate you to be imperfectly perfect and accept your body unapologetically and with compassion.
