Eldina is a young lady from Copenhagen and she decided to stop shaving her facial hair. She has drawn the attention of many people by documenting her journey on her social media. While doing so, She also had helped others feel more confident and be true to themselves, instead of trying to please everyone.
Today we Anomalousclub brought you the story of Elana, we hope this will be very inspiring to you all.
It wasn’t something that happened overnight
The process by which Eldina decided to stop removing facial hair wasn’t an idea out of nowhere. It was a gradual process. This wasn’t something that happened suddenly. “Elena has become more frustrated with having to remove facial hair for no reason. I have seen men walking outside without removing hair. So why should I remove my hair? I realized that I could spend my time much better rather than spending time removing facial hair. I am not against shaving or removing hair, but the expectation that every woman should do it all the time is what annoys me.“
Everyone can relate to how Eldina feels
There are different standards for men and women in the society we live in. Not only Eldina, even other women who have spoken to her feel this way. A lot of women have told Eldina that they really don’t wanna remove all the body hair, but they are being pressured by society to do things they don’t like.
What others think of you is not important.
You have to always be true to yourself. It is very important and there will always be people who love for who you truly are. You can always find new friends if people don’t like you. You always have the ability to find other groups of people who will accept and value your thoughts and feelings. Do you really want to be liked by someone you’re not?”
Beauty standards are always changing
She also says that beauty standards are super random, they change all the time and something that’s very important now could be completely irrelevant in 10 years.”
Finally, Eldina said that it is more important to reflect on why you’re doing what you’re doing.
What do you think of her story? Do you also feel pressured by society’s beauty standards too? Do you think it is okay for women to grow facial hair?
