Well I have hundreds of embarrassing acne memories, here are just a few that spring to mind:
When I was 13 we had to draw portraits of each other during art class, part of the activity involved each having a photo taken then it would be pot luck who sketched one another from our photos. I was very upset first of all about having to have my photo taken because at 13 I had not yet mastered make up application to cover my skin so happened to have a bare face for the pic, when it came out it was just as I feared: hundreds of red spots everywhere that were very noticable. I begged the person who ended up having to draw me not to include my spots in the art work but her and one of her friends said in a really bitchy way 'but we have to draw what we see ibiza1987'. Urgh how cruel is that? Afterwards our work was pinned up in the school corridoor, and my messed up skin was all included in the drawing of me. Ouch. Why?
My Dad used to make very cruel comments and constantly asked me 'what have you done to your face?' whilst looking at me in disgust. One time he even refused to eat his dinner with me sitting opposite because my inflamed face was apparently making him lose his appetite so he left the table and then cursed me for causing him to leave his dinner and ruining his day
My Nanny also made cruel comments, she told me I would never find anyone to love me due to the state of my face, she used to tell me I had acne because I was evil, other times she would tell me I must have a terrible diet for my skin to be in that state. She would go on and on and on about it and then rubbed it in about what perfect skin she's always had.
Another random one I just thought of: this boy on the school bus said to me really accusingly and aggressively in front of about 20 other people 'you've got loads of spots and you cover them up with make up, don't you?'
Also, one of my sisters friends once randomly said to me 'you've got spots on your face'. You don't say, duh!
Girl, honestly, i would rather have acne on my face that be a bitch like them and my aunt! Honestly, these people are so angry on the inside that they always need to bring us down. They are miserable people!
Why are there soooooooo many people like this though? I have had countless people say nasty things about my skin, are there that many awful people in the world or is it me? Does make me wonder sometimes!
Oh girl, there are more a**holes in this world than good people. You are right!!! I have no idea why they are so angry. I get it: life is tough but why put down others??? I don't know about you hun, but I noticed as I get older, I encounter more and more angry people.
