There is no greater affirmation of a man’s virility than the ability to grow a thick, full beard. There’s something uniquely empowering about it – making you feel like you could wrestle a bear, catch a fish with your bare hands or partake in other such manly activities.
Yet there is more to growing a beard than simply throwing away your razor – it takes time, dedication and a superhuman ability to resist the urge to scratch.
Growing a beard is a commitment. It will take time and dedication. There may be days when you feel like giving in and picking up the razor again. For times like these, you may find it helpful to keep an image of a bearded role model in mind.
