Growing out your beard for most is a great journey. You grow through various stages when finding the beard that is most right for you. From the itchy stubbly stages to the thick and wild forms, your beard will grant you little things you probably never thought were at all possible until you grew out your facial fuzz. So, today I want to share with you all four things you simply wouldn't know about unless you have grown a beard of your own...
YOUR BEARD WILL BECOME THE BIGGEST PART OF YOUR IMAGE!
It is true that once you begin to grow out your beard and become attached enough to keep it (Which you will, it is inevitable!) your beard will become the most recognisable feature of you as a person. When people forget your name, they'll simply refer to you as 'That guy over there with the beard!' For example, I was over in Germany a few years ago attending a Call Of Duty gaming launch event. I just so happened to be stood in the background of a live stream that was being live aired on the internet to thousands around the globe. When I arrived back at the hotel I was staying at I got recognized by more than several people who had watched the stream and referred to me as 'The guy with the big red beard!' It's not a bad thing in my opinion, in fact, quite the opposite. If you're gonna be remembered for something it could be something a whole lot worse, I guess!
RANDOM FOLKS WILL WANT TO TOUCH YOUR FURRY FACE!
I've touched upon this before in previous blog posts, but it's a commonly known fact that when you sport a smashingly awesome beard you'll more often than not meet people who will straight up ask if they can fondle the beard. Usually they already start touching before you get a chance to answer. Again, I don't see this as a bad thing 99% of the time, although it can get a tad annoying if you've recently been to the beard barbers or just applied and styled your facial forest. So, if you are a regular beard fiddler, be warned. We CAN bite. (But only upon request!)
YOU'LL BEGIN TO FORGET WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE BEFORE THE BEARD!
When I say you will forget what life was like before the beard, I don't mean you'll suddenly have a bad flash bout of forgetfulness. But you will however begin to forget what you looked like without a glorious beard. Photos of the 'old you' will appear strange and heavens forbid if you ever take to the razor again you are pretty much guaranteed to hate the 'baby-faced' outcome of it. (It happened to me, I cried. True story, Bro.) So, my solid first hand advice would be to never shave. Again, ever.
THE BEARD WILL BECOME YOUR NEW THINKING TOOL!
When you see a bearded gentleman deep in thought you'll often see him touching his beard during the process. Ask any bearded man why this happens and you'll struggle to find an answer. It is just one of those things we do, often without even realising we are doing it. And it does work too! When I'm sat here writing these beard blogs and I pause for thought on the given subject at hand and give myself a jolly good fiddle! (Of the beard, I fiddle the beard you filth bucket!) And it works an absolute charm! Am I right? Or am i right my fellow 'beardos'?
