OP, all historical male figures worth respecting maintained some sort of facial hair. The exception is colonial/independence times, where facial hair briefly went out of fashion (think George Washington). You're merely experiencing what's buried in most individuals' subconscious: your beard is what makes you a real man.
Interestingly, no U.S. president since Taft (1909-1918) has had facial hair.
President only one term. 1909-1913. Only person to serve as President and Chief Justice.
And one fat man.
