Re: Facial hair
No, nothing about how I look affects how I feel about myself. I do not place different values on different people, including me. I am as worthy or worthless as all others; that being the case, nothing I do or appear like can change the value because doing so would raise or lower someone who's perpetually equal to all.
However...I wore beards as long as I lived at altitude and they reduced the likelihood of sunburn and skin cancer.
And I am now 30 pounds overweight. This does not change how I feel about myself, but it does give me clues about altering my present habits and objectives! I certainly won't alter clothing style or facial hair to hide the results of my own choices....
