You ever had one o f those days? Everything is going pretty darn good. You feel good. You THINK you look good. Looking girly and feminine and darn pretty. You have been out all day showing off your loveliness. Then you get home , look into the mirror, and it hits you....................................
The reason people were staring at you wasn't because you looked so good, it was because your face had been invaded. Looking back at you from the mirror , and laughing at you are BIG BLACK OLD LADY CHIN HAIRS. OH wait, LOOK, there are even more stupid black hairs making a mustache for you . NICE!!
It's very frustrating and embarassing to find these little unwanted guys hanging out on your face. You have plucked and tweezed them every day. You have had waxing done and screamed in pain from the lovely procedure. It brought tears to your eyes. You have even had the stupid things lazered. It was expensive; unfortunately, it was not too helpful either!
I love it when my husband says he can feel my mustache when he kisses me or tells me my mustache is tickling his face. HELLO, this guys face is super hairy and he can grow a big fluffy beard in less than a week. I know it isn't that bad. geez. Sometimes he walks past me and rubs my face and acts like those stupid hairs rip the skin on his hands. He is a great guy and we always joke about this issue. I just roll my eyes at him and wage war on these stupid hairs diligently! I always lose.
I have a friend at work. Her second job is as a beautician / hair dresser / hair stylist ...... you get the idea. She hauls me in back and plucks the hair off of my face and saves them to a tissue. Then she proceeds to show them to our supervisor and tell her that we killed a spider. The sad part is that it REALLy does look like spider legs on that tissue.
I love my friend. She makes me laugh even when I feel like crying! With her beautifying skills, those hairs didn't have a chance!
I always used to wonder why older women would sometimes grow mustaches and beards. NOW I know. IT HURTS and it's frustrating keeping up with hair removal. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! I know I am not going to shave my face like many women do. The waxing hurts, but I do it when the hair gets too crazy. My next option is to let it grow and start braiding it. ( I AM NOT THERE YET!! )
If you feel like you are the only one fighting this daily battle, I want you to know you are not alone. Just hang in there and keep removing those pesky hairs until you are ready to grow a full beard. I know I will give up when I reach the point that I just don't care anymore! I think the beard may be coming up for me in the next decade of life. MAYBE, at that time, women beards will be the current trend for us girls ! One can only hope!
