Wearing Niqab Again

Alhamdulillah, Ive made the decision to wear niqab again. And I feel great about it. Since I moved, I'm in a bigger Muslim community so I don't have to worry about scaring anyone or being the only one. I think most of the sisters here do wear it, so I'll fit in just perfectly. I went to the masjid this Friday here and 9 outta the 10 sisters wore it. Masha'Allah, Ive never really seen that. Usually its just one or two here and there.
Also since I bought a few more to add to the one I had. I have 2 flip styles, one single layer, and a 2-layer flip style. I actually like the 1-layer style. I think it suits me best. I'm actually surprise that I bought a Velcro band niqab and it fits my big head-lol. The only thing I don't like about it is that you need to be careful when your putting it on because the Velcro can stick to your hijab and could mess it up, depending on the material.
I went out yesterday and I actually didn't get any weird stares. People were actually friendly. The cashier at the supermarket smiled at me and said have a good day. Maybe people are just used to seeing it nowadays. They weren't fearful at all. Thats a good thing I guess. We'll see what happens, but regardless, Im not taking it off this time around. My niqab is here to stay lol. I never knew why I took it off to begin with. I guess I cared more of what other people thought than what I wanted. Now screw what anyone thinks. If you don't like it you can kick rocks.

Assalamu alaykum, sister

Masha'Allaah good to hear you put the niqab back on, I actually stopped wearing mine for a while ,but really missed it and it felt great putting it back on alhamdulillaah.
And that's right, we shouldn't worry what other people think/say, just remind ourselves we're doing it for Allaah's sake and put our trust in him insha Allaah.
