Oh, sorry.. I didn't mean it in a negative way at all. Like you said, coming to acceptance isn't easy. But if it makes you feel any better I'm pretty envious of your density.. I have much less dense hair, and I can only get volume when I don't wet my hair for a few days. Otherwise it's usually on the flat side.
