Waheguru ji ka khalsa

waheguru ji ki fathe ji

i am 22 year old amritdahri sikh girl. Latelly I have been feeling depressed and confused
because of my facial hair. I have a beard on my kinn and neck, and when I say beard it is not some hairs, there are a bunch of long hairs. And it is not only my face all over my body i am more hairy than even my brother.
Where i am living there is no other amritdhari girl or amritdhari youngster,
it was hard enough to be alone but this is too much. I cant take it any longer. I am affraid of giving up this path after so many years, its deppressing my and i cant concentrate on my studies.
I am studing and living in europe, i am affraid only because of this
i wont get a job. I saw a doctor but she said my harmones are alright. I really dont know what to do. I am losing my confidence and faith and it is getting me day by day down. Please help me.

Sat Nam,

I believe and I have heard it said in many Amrit ceremonies that Amrit allows a woman to remove her facial hair if it makes her look like a man. This seems to be only exception to the rule when it comes to hair. It does not allow for plucking eyebrows but if it became such an embarrassment for you then it maybe OK to take care of it.
Just go to sleep tonight and meditate on what I said and see if it feels right for you. Don't make any rush decisions but do take care of yourself the best way you know how.
