I remember when I was a kid and there was this new hairstyle that was making all the rounds. Even if people did not like the hairstyle and they thought it was the goofiest thing that they’ve ever seen, they still eventually got around to it and wore it. Now, after they had the haircut, they still hated it, but they went along. What’s wrong with this picture? It’s a self-fulfilling lie.
Believe it or not, people do this all the time. They do this not just in terms of their hairstyles, beard styles, tattoos or clothing selection, they also do this with their choice of partner, choice of religion, choice of political ideology, and so on and so forth.
The sad reality is that most Americans love to get on the bandwagon. We talk a big game about being an individualist, but deep down inside, there is a part of us that would love to go along just to get along.
We want to be part of the crowd. We want to belong. We want to be part of something bigger and better than us. And unfortunately, we are too willing to trade a lot of our humanity for it. Everything that is unique, special and amazing about you, you end up giving up just to be yet another face in the crowd.
This is the harsh reality that we, at Lisa Kift Therapy, try to help our clients get over. Because when you feel that you are unique, you feel more in control. When you feel you are more in control, you are happier and you are more content.
And if you are still on the fence regarding the kind of look you’d like to project, go to Primitive Outpost and other similar beard styling sites. You would get all the ideas you need to come up with a look that is perfectly yours.
Once you do this, you feel like you are your own person. You feel like you have your own personal stamp on any kind of social situation. You’re not just a person riding the bandwagon. You’re not just another person trying to fit in. You’re not another detail or a cog in the machine. Instead, you are your own person.
This is not a small thing because that feeling of uniqueness can infiltrate and grow through other areas of your life. It applies across the board. Your relationships can become more fulfilling, you would be able to do more meaningful work, and most importantly, you would feel that somehow, some way, life is worth living. And all it took was going to PrimitiveOutpost or some other sites and work on your appearance.
Because believe it or not, the old saying of, “to feel like a million bucks, you have to look like a million bucks” actually works. Ideally, we should change ourselves inside first so we can then project a better appearance to the world, but it can also work the other way around. Regardless of how you cut it, your facial beard style says a lot about you. Isn’t it time you took control over it?
