Escaping Commitment

I primarily work a night shift. Recently, I agreed to help out during normal operating hours once a week. My job requires that be clean-shaven for this day shift. Whatever. No big deal, right?

Well, apparently not. I suspect that I might have a case of BDD. I feel much better about myself with a bit of scruff on my face. Every time I've shaved, I've felt terrible about myself. I've spent a lot of time in front of mirrors, i haven't wanted to leave the house, and I've done my best to avoid people, even my girlfriend. I am like this sometimes regardless of whether i'm bearded or not, but it's been unbearable since I took on this shift. lying in bed, feeling ugly and suicidal, I've concluded that the money just aint worth it.

... but i feel absolutely ridiculous about my reasoning. I feel bad for weaseling my way out of something i committed to after just a few weeks. I don't want to leave my coworkers in a bad spot. How do I get out of this?

I'm curious about what the rest of you looks like. I doubt your beard makes you happy or unhappy. Deeper insecurities are happening.

My insecurities aren't something I feel comfortable opening up about. Some people know that I am unhappy with myself, but I'd be embarrassed to reveal the true extent of my vanity. I'm terrified that I will out myself to someone and that they will simply nod their head and agree. It would be crushing, lol.

And Trachei, you're right. This is the thing that bothers me the most, though. especially of late. I have a weak chin and a wide face. I'm 6'2" and weigh 195 lbs. I'm not in great shape or anything but I'm not fat either. it's (mostly) a product of unfortunate bone structure and it seems to run in the family.

Work out and eat better, you'll feel better about yourself when you start losing weight.

you guys didnt read the thread. He's not concerned about his weight. He's irrationally concerned about elements he cant control, like bone structure.

Working out wont change that.

Working out can increase his confidence in the rest of his body, so it is somewhat relevant.

But nobody's bone structure is so bad that they should feel bad leaving the house. Something else is wrong here.

dude I know what you mean, to a degree. I shave, and I feel like it makes me look mad feminine, as if my mannerisms and my voice werent enough to make people question my sexuality. My boss basically forces me to keep clean shaven, even though he walks around with a five o' clock shadow. He has made fun of a hat I wore once to a bar... I'm like "hey buddy, you're the one wearing ugg boots". Not to mention, he has this stupid fucking haircut: it's buzzed on the sides with this flare at the top, where he obviously highlights the shit out of it with sun in or some ridiculous coloring system. You look like a fucking clown, don't talk to me about appearance.

Why don't you calm down? I don't think your boss means anything seriously and is just joking around.
