I disagree completely with your posts, so we'll leave it there. Everyone has a different conception about happiness and normality. I have a form of acne that doesn't let me live a normal life and be happy. I don't care about kids suffering of cancer, they got unlucky same as I did. We born and we die, some sooner and some later. Quality of life > quantity. I want stuff that would me make happy, and when I don't get them and think about kids starving in Africa, I don't feel any better. This is life, we're not equal, some of us born luckier and some of us don't.
"I want stuff that would me make happy, and when I don't get them and think about kids starving in Africa, I don't feel any better"
"Stuff" like material and money do not buy happiness. Neither does looks, you are never going to be satisifed. You can want things and you can attain them you just have to put past the looks-are-everything-cannot-feel-anything-without-clear-skin attitude. You put to much focus on it therefore are setting a trap for yourself.
You do not see the value and gift of life unless you see loss and be apart of that loss. You dont feel its enormity until you are close to that person. So dying kids in africa is just words with no meaning. Therefore you cannot appreciate life nor try to make the best of it by worrying less about what you do not have much control of. Just, don't let acne control you and your drive to "get stuff" to attain whatever feelings you desire.
Easier said then done. But nobody said it was easy or that it happens right away.
I forgot to add. You do not care about kids with cancer. How you expect anyone to care for you because you have acne? It goes both ways. Would you rather have me insult you and treat you like rubbish when you come to the clinic because of your acne or would you rather me have empathy and compassion? Yeah. It goes both ways.
Doesn't mean you have to have a bleeding heart. Just means you pay them the respect they deserve as they didnt ask for it (as many of us have) because that is somebody's kid...Someone loves them no matter what. Dont take that way from them. I understand that your life, although your own experiences, its not over or as hard as you say when you compare it as i have done. You are in a position to change your outlook and live a better life by accepting your acne as being apart of you. Therefore you can find ways to help yourself both emotionally and physically to live your life.
