So today I caught myself being dumb. No surprise I guess This whole time I've always been soo self-conscious of my skin- overly aware when people get close to me- in fact so bad that at times I'd switch sides with whoever so only my "good" side was visible.
But tonight when I was out with a few friends-- I realized something when a couple of people were introduced to me- both girls. I noticed both of them had acne. But it was such a subliminal realization that I found myself only fully noting it as I reminisced about the night on my drive home!
- I say all that to say- the fact that they had acne DID NOT keep me from enjoying their company, having a blast, and making some incredible new friends.
- the fact that they had acne DID NOT keep THEM from enjoying their night either!
So I call myself dumb because after all these years of struggling with acne and caring so much about what others think- tonight I've come to the conclusion that people don't really care or notice others with acne in the midst of the moment. ---
Even though both girls were dealing with acne- they enjoyed themselves- and I enjoyed their company- and I can't speak for them- but I can speak for myself when I say their acne was not on my mind.
I'm just happy because they didn't seem to care and did not allow a skin problem keep them from enjoying a perfectly livable night...
If only I had been that strong when I was at my worst!!
