Rose Geil has been fighting an unusual condition since she was a young girl, and recently she has decided to stop living the way society expects her to. We could all learn a lesson from her!
At just age 13, she realized that she was growing a lot more hair than her friends. It became a source of anxiety for young Rose, and she began obsessively shaving her excess hair. When she was older, she tried laser hair removal, but nothing was working for her. Her hair became a source of stress, and as you can imagine, it was ruling her life.
But about 8 months ago, she decided that enough was enough. She was no longer going to hide from her own body, and people love her for it.
Growing my beard has made me more confident. I feel pretty with my beard, and I never felt pretty before. I didn’t realize the emotional impact until I was older. I just thought it was regular teen angst when I was young.”
She wasn’t sure about the reaction people would have when they saw her in public, but their actions shocked her. People will stop her and tell her how inspiring she is. Their reactions will be either positive or neutral – she hasn’t received an ounce of hatred from anyone on the street.
Something she wasn’t expecting? Marriage proposals and offers to travel the country! It has made her feel more womanly to just be herself and to stop trying to change the way she was born.
She is incredible, and society should take a lesson from her! Incredible!
