So lets get it straight. Beards are awesome. There is no denying the fact that a heavy stubble or a full grown beard makes a man look more masculine than anything else can. A beard is a sign of a patient man and so it can be safely said that a person who can carry a beard responsibly, can carry anything else in the same manner. This and a million other reasons make it obvious that every man out there wants to fit in the league of the extraordinary gentlemen who sport some facial hair.
But a beard, unlike a sports car or a yatch, cannot be bought. There is no way you can wish that you want a beard and take efforts for it or spend an awful lot of money to get the right-sized natural beard. A beard has to grow. And even before that, it has to be there. A beard is either going to be there or it isn’t. There’s no in between. And that is why the only thing you can count on while wanting a beard is sheer luck.
So let’s face the music. There are a lot many guys who have beards and there are many others who have been unfortunate in this region. If you are one of the latter, this post is for you. I have seen the mess made by facial hair that aren’t anywhere close to beards all over the internet. Scanty sideburns, light scruff, non-existent goatee are all over instagram and facebook with the hashtag ‘beard’. But look bro, as much as you would hate to call Selena Gomez busty, the world would hate to call the discreet hair along your jawline a beard.
A beard is a big deal. You cannot bluff in this region. And then there is this one thing I want you to know after all this. Not having a beard isn’t a crime. Not having a beard isn’t going to keep you single forever. Not having a beard isn’t shameful. Not having a beard isn’t a million things that you fear. Because there are people who might sport a good beard but not have most of the things that you posess and envy you for it. Especially if you’re Bruce Wayne. On a serious note though, all that I’m saying holds true in all cases and a beard isn’t the last best thing on planet earth. So if you’re one of those blokes for whom facial awesomeness has been nothing but a broken dream, get a razor and cut off the remaining scruff that leads you into a delusion.
Because even if a beard is one of the best things a man can possess, not having one will not make you any lesser man. If anything will, it’s faking it.
If you are a person capable of growing a beard but aren’t, it’s a real shame. Period.
