I understand how you are feeling, and I can conclude that you want to take off your headscarf because you do not feel religious anymore.
You need to understand that any decision you may take in your life only and only affects you. This means that before any decision, I really, really encourage you to think for some time, and I am not even going to lie to you and merely say think for a 'bit'. You matter to me; Yes, true, I do not know you, but I don't know, I am just the kind of person who enjoys dealing with people and help make their life simpler, but at the end you are free to do what you want to do.
From my understanding and study of the religion of Islam, I believe it to be a very peaceful religion, and the reasons why I find it this way, are so many. God does not want you to wear the headscarf for the sake of your irritation. Instead,
it is one of the many reasons to protect you, and mind you, I did not say to repress you. Big difference!
I know how you are feeling, and the sort of struggle you are facing. The headscarf preserves your modesty and maintans the respect you DESERVE from all the people around you. You know, Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), who spent many years striving and starving to spread the message of peace to humanity, the message which has been unfortunately manipulated by anti-peacemakers, was once speaking to his friends when he told them "I miss my brothers and sisters, and his friends told him 'Aren't we your brothers?!', but he replied to them 'No, you have seen me, but my brothers and my sisters [us], have not seen me'. Imagine, how much love Prophet Muhammad has for all of us, not only Muslims, but also Chrisitans, Jews, and everybody.
By the way, I may sound like a hyprocrite myself, because I am not veiled, but I am planning to wear the headscarf when I go to university.. God has been with me in so many aspects of my life, in death-in-life experiences, and I am not lying to you, believe me or don't it is your choice, but I am going through so many problems in my life today, psychological, friends, life, and every single day, I feel more courageous to face the world because I am sure we are here for a reason. We are not created out of whatever just to live whatever and die 'whatever'. In the Holy Qur'an, God says what it means "Do you think We have created you just like that and that you are not going to return back to Us?"
Not because I am Muslim that I am supposed to prejudge every non-Muslim i n the world. No, everybody has a value, and this is what God has taught me. You, too, definitely have a very precious value and a wide impact on the lives of the people around you. Please do not take your precious headscarf for granted. Okay? Feel free to chat with me if you need anything!
