Martyria (mar-tir’-i-a): Confirming something by referring to one’s own experience.
I have had a beard ever since I had pubic hair. Well, maybe a few years after I started to sprout. Many women have loved my beard. My daughter loved pulling on my beard when she was a toddler. I always got compliments. I was beard proud!
One of the best things about having a beard is no more shaving every morning. You wake up. You look in the mirror. There’s that beautiful clump of hair looking back at you. No whiskers. No problems! You’re ready to go after giving your hair a comb (of course, you might want to shower too).
Grow a beard. You’ll never regret it. If you do regret it, just shave it off!
