Soon I have gone 8 weeks without shaving. I know that might not be that long in the grand scheme of things, but hey we all start somewhere right? In the past I have always found it much harder to grow a beard. And I now know why. Its because I used to let people tell me and convince me to shave. Now when I no longer have those in my life. Growing a beard is easy and so much fun.
So stop listening to the haters and do what you want. And let yourself find out if you like it or not. Instead of letting people tell you what you like and don't like.
