An Indian Woman Was Dumped by Her Husband Because She Bravely Decided Not to Shave Her Beard
Mandeep Kaur faced rejection and emotional turmoil after growing a beard, which led to her husband leaving her. However, she refused to let societal norms dictate her appearance and now proudly embraces her facial hair as her best feature.
Her husband left her when her facial hair started to grow.
Mandeep Kaur did not experience any facial hair growth before and lived a fairly normal life just like any other woman. However, a few years into her marriage, her appearance changed drastically leaving her with thick hair on her cheeks and chin.
Her husband couldn’t accept this sudden change and proceeded to divorce her. This decision caught the poor woman off guard and sent her into a long emotional spiral which led to the deepest depression she had ever experienced in her life.
Despite all, she found the strength to seek psychological help.
Kaur says that she blamed herself for several years for everything that happened. She tried to get rid of her facial hair, yet after all was said and done, she found a way to come to terms with her looks and has since refused to shave.
Thankfully, she sought help and came to accept her appearance relatively quickly. She started to take care of her emotional health and embrace her new features.
Finally, she was able to accept her new look fully.
Kaur has found her strength and empowerment through farming and now works alongside her brothers. She developed a new trademark look, wearing a full beard and a turban. In addition, she also drives around their village on a motorbike.
However, even though her story went viral, many people still mistake her for a man, that is until she starts speaking. Yet, she seems to face these situations with a sense of humor, channeling her newfound confidence whenever possible.
The cause behind facial hair growth in women.
Growing thick dark hair on a woman’s face, neck, chest, or thighs is called hirsutism. And usually, it’s completely hormonal, though some cases may be caused by certain medicines or substances. Sometimes it is caused by an excess of male hormones (androgens) in the body, or when the body is too sensitive to these hormones.
In many cases, though, it’s not completely clear why all this happens. For instance, some women develop extra hair growth as they age. For others, it becomes a more long-term problem. There are several treatments out there that can help to control it. Just don’t forget to consult your doctor regularly to catch it in the early stages.
Her story has the power to inspire many women with the same health problems.
However, many women, like Kaur, still experience misunderstandings and judgment from society. Her story is a testament to the power of self-acceptance and the importance of maintaining your mental health. Kaur sought help and came to terms with her appearance, inspiring others to do the same. Don’t let societal norms dictate your worth — embrace your true self and seek help if needed.
