hello, I'm 21 years old guy . I just moved to the new city where all white people live. past few months was real hard for me. I have faced some racist people. I dont know what came up in my mind i just trimmed my hairs two days ago. I really regret that. I can't even sleep, my whole day i just think why i did this. I'm still Tying my turban but feels very ashamed when i look myself in th mirror. All the time i just think guru ji will punish me for this . I don't know why i did this it just happened. i really don't have any valid excuse to cut my hair but i still did this.Anybody please help me to get over this. I really mentally depressed right now.

Sikhism is not everybody's cup of tea, the reason most of the Sikhs face extreme difficulty in keeping untrimmed bodily hairs from Top to Toe plus there are other restrictions too like Sikh must not smoke, drink alcohol and being vegetarian, etc., etc.

There are other religions, non-Sikh faiths which do not have so many restrictions like Sikhism, so all those Sikhs who do face daily issues in practicing Sikhism, do have the option of converting to any non-Sikh faith. Sikhism cannot be followed just by being emotional or sentimental or even by force. To follow Sikhism you need firm commitment to be made to yourself.

Please don't feel ashamed rather ask yourself, "Is it possible for me to follow this most difficult path of the Guru?". If your own inner self says No, then just leave Sikhi rather than being muddled or confused, and regretting as to why i trimmed my hairs.......................Rest, the choice is your's.

You seem to be asking forum members to help you not to feel depressed about your actions. I don't think we can do that.

You say, "I don't know why i did this it just happened." Hmmm... actually you do know very well. There is only one reason - because you want to please others by looking as you think they wish you to look.

If your conscience is bothering you, that's why. So you have two choices: 1. Keep cutting your hairs (and that will become your daily routine.) or, 2. Let God be your groomer and allow them to grow back in your natural form.

Actually i just regret my action. I know made a big mistake. I don't want any help to come out of depression. I just want to come back to sikhi more stronger. l'm more connected to bani from past 3 days. doing nitnem everyday. I don't know guru will accept me now or not.

Guru Ji has already blessed you. Keep up and be steady.

Oh my God. The people who responded to your plea are so mean. If they were so much into Sikhi, they would empathize with your pain and not put you down. Guru ji is not going to punish you. Life is a journey. You will make mistakes. One day either you will decide that you are fully happy with your hair or you might go the other way. You have to decide what is most important to you.
