Beards are to men what makeup is to women.
A mask to hide behind.
We all try to create an image, to be someone, something else.
There are many reasons for this.
Take myself as the arbitrary example –
Always in amy kit, maintains a lean muscular physique year round, has an insatiable need to learn new skills.
This says one thing: it’s all about me & making myself happy because no one else will, nor should they.
Then again, it’s called your life for a reason.
As such you’re free to create the mask you find more pleasing to wear that gave you the desired results you’d not admit you really want.
Maybe it’s status/respect, and this is why you always burt the most expensive things.
Perhaps it’s intimidation, hence the beard and excess bulk (fat) that keeps people from getting up in your grill.
You might nail all you social media poses and have your makeup on point so that you get all the attention and feel pretty, valued, wanted.
Regardless of what we get, there is always a reason why we desire such responses.
What does your image say about you?
More importantly, how does it make you feel?
Or rather, why do you want to feel that way?
Give this some honest thought because there is nothing wrong with desiring a specific outcome, or wanting to feel a certain way as the result of your appearance, despite those that say there is.
