Let's face it... we all just grow our beards because everyone else is doing it, right? I mean, it was the cool thing to do for a while. But, now, it's time to face reality and be a grown up. After all.. it's almost Summer time and that thing will be hot and itchy any way.
While there are some guys who grow their beard in order to fit in or follow the latest trends, there are far more of us that grow for the enjoyment of growing a beard. It's not about being a biker, a hipster, or even a lumber jack. It's about doing what you want to do for your own reasons. Be a real man and make your own decisions based on your own heart and head.. not what other's tell you is in or out, ugly or handsome.
For too long, we've been inundated with negative images of beards with razor commercials and the news outlet. I'll let you in on a little secret.. BEARDS ARE NATURAL! It's shaving that goes against what we are genetically supposed to look like. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't care if you shave.. for the right reason. Maybe you can't grow a beard; maybe your job makes it impossible to keep a beard; maybe you just get tired of having one (blasphemy!).
The bottom line is to do what you want to do without being a sheep!
