"1,000 Zits"

843 views

You would imagine that someone who has gone through acne as bad as mine would understand and comprehend how difficult and soul-crushing it is. I was so wrong.

Today, I was on FaceTime with my cousin when she brought up a conversation between her and one of my ex-boyfriends. I had dated this guy for a month, but he was in college and I was in high school so we were in totally different phases of our lives so we broke up. She told me he messaged her and brought me up in the conversation. He had really bad acne in high school, and I got it my senior year of high school. He was worse than I was and still has ice pick scars. He told her that karma is great because I got "1, 000 zits and no boyfriend." He even joked and said "Is she dating anyone because with her face no one should date her". I, of course, being the angry little person I am, attacked him for what he said about my skin and he retalliated by saying "I know how you feel!!!!". If he really knew how I felt, he wouldn't have said a thing. Just as I was feeling better about things, here I am at rock bottom, crying, because I'm ugly.

Sorry for the long rant, I just don't have many friends who understand what I feel.

hey jess,

first of all i wouldn't cry as hard as it seems you deserve to feel good about yourself regardless of acne or not. Chin up my dear ;)

A lot of people who don't who don't have acne or have had it and 'grown' out of it never know the emotional impact it has a person. This forum/blogs is a great way to vent and meet people who actually understand how you feel and can comfort you.

It seems like this person is not worth talking to if makes you feel how you do, sometimes we need to meet people who make us feel good about ourselves or don't judge our appearance.

i hope you are feeling better now. You look like a very pretty girl from your pic :)
