If it's impossible or not is irrelevant. It's about when you get clear. If your best years of youth are destroyed by acne and you can't develop socially, professionally, sexually etc. as a healthy, normal person, then what's the point in getting clear at like 29 years old when you'll anyway have huge scars on your face and your soul as well?
Lets take your example and say your 59 with huge scars and on your sole as well. What then?
And just because you spent that many years in emotional pain, agony, judgement- you still lived. You probably have done things others have not. You have lived or attempted to live a life that frankly many do not get to have.This encompasses all the fun things you have participated in, done, milestones reached, progress you made, successes you have had, things you were apart of, the love you have felt, the feelings you have had (love, belonging to name a few) all this you take for granted.
I do not need to name all the terrible diseases in this world, pair them with a young child, and name all of the things they miss out on because they have no control, whereas someone with acne does have more control of their live. You can read multiple stories, hell even go into a hospital ICU ward, or cancer floor and see enough suffering to make your own feel insignificant. I do not mean to make your suffering seem like nothing, but really? When comparing the two and declaring how you have not developed "socially, professionally, sexually etc." you are no match.
Many die in hospitals and have not or will not be able to live any life. So whats the sense of them living? To suffer? No. Life is a priceless gift; you chose whether to suffer or enjoy life the best you can, dealing with the cards you were dealt the best you can. Finding hope when it seems lost. Children even those with the worst terminal illnesses always seem to be able to teach adults a thing or two about life because they are less negative about it all.
Even if/when you get clear your life is not wasted unless you tell yourself that everyday. That is your fault. In the mean time think of sick children- those with terminal cancers that live in hospitals daily, yet are able to find the strength to smile and be happy in the midst of death. Your life is not over; you can always develop "socially, professionally, sexually etc." because you have the chance to.
To this thread. Yes i have. The winter and early spring of 2012 i waited for the nightly train that rolls by my place 4-5 times daily. I walked my final walk around the town and then thought i percisely figured the time when it [train] would come. It was 2hrs late that night. Being late saved my life; along with the night,cold winter air that forced me to go inside after 30 minutes of waiting. yeah...
