I’ve come to the conclusion to give The Beard Project a break. After all this time it’s come to the point where I feel that I’m now doing this in the hunt for likes and re-blogs, to have my e-penis stimulated rather than doing it for the reason I started – my own, personal pleasure.
I’ve had a number of various Tumblr blogs, some of which I haven’t used in over two years. In essence, I think that anyone’s relationship to their life online should be a bit like their relationship with clothing – if you haven’t used it in over six months, it’s time to let it go.
With that said, I also feel it’s worth mentioning that I’ve been going back and forth about the future of the beard. Yes, there are a number of reasons to why every man who can should definitely start growing and personally I don’t see a reason to get rid of it all just yet. But - essentially it’s a question of being comfortable in ones skin or not. Having a beard should never feel like something one’s supposed to do, a chore forced upon oneself simply after looking at the popularity of bearded people online. It has to go deeper, and speaking on my own account, the motivation has been rather vague lately, something I feel quite certain is rooted in the on-and-off depression I’ve been dealing with the last couple of months.
That’s a whole other story, though, which we’ll leave at that.
I hope this clear things up for those of you interested. To be honest, in some days this will all be forgotten, and another sexy, bearded man is there to brighten up your day. That’s what it’s like in the world of Tumblr. A few thoughts a late evening by another guy from northern Europe doesn’t really matter much after all. But then again, should it really matter what I say? Me, you, we, we’re here for the beards, after all. That’s what got me started too. Please enjoy the rest of the weekend. I’ll probably be checking back every now and then, but mainly I’ll try to focus more on the things that matter, school being my main target.
Until next time, have a good one.
