I like the idea of volunteering for something. Perhaps a rescue mission or food pantry? A place where you can help those who are down and out. See how good you have it! When you are helping other people you spend less time looking at yourself.
If you don't have some close friends to hang out with, work hard at finding some. This is HARD WORK. Finding a friend and being a friend is not easy. It takes time. But is very rewarding. Great help with self image.
I shave my head, partly, to encourage those who are balding and have less of a choice. Just look around you and see how many guys are balding. Beat the balding to the punch. Break out the razor or headblade and keep your head shaved. It's a great hairstyle. Looks sharp, always neat and trim. Your beard looks great, typically of guys who bald early. It'd suggest it's a keeper.
Bald head and thick beard. Great look.
