I’m contemplating whether I should continuing shaving or not.
I’m kind of tired of it. And honestly, I haven’t the faintest clue why I still do it. I feel like the people I need in my life are those accepting enough to deal with some body hair. The only reason why I shave is because I feel like I’m supposed to. That’s how it’s been ever since 6th grade when the popular girls complained about their shaving problems while I looked down at my bear-like hairy legs and tried to hide them under me. I still only shave because of the memory of how embarrassed I have been because of people taunting me about how much hair I have.
But seriously guys. I don’t want to shave any more. Like, I just don’t feel like it when I shower any more. But I can’t really stop because I don’t have a good enough reason to. I guess it could save money from not having to buy razors . and I could take shorter showers.. but I want a good reason that I can say powerfully. And don’t tell me I don’t need a reason… because I do. I won’t be able to not shave if people give me shit about it and I have no counter defense.
So, tell me- why don’t you shave? Why do you?
