As a teenager people treated me differently. I was teased and jokes were made. I grew up very shy and quiet, not a fiery redhead. I think being teased made me more shy. It didn't help that I'm left-handed and short. I was teased for that too. The few times I get upset the red hair is blamed. I admit I am stubborn and once angry slow to cool down. As an adult I embrace the red hair. My hair got dark after I had a child so I now dye it red. I like being unique. Blonde and brunette is boring.
