Struggling With Guilt...

01 September 2012 - 11:32 PM

Hello everyone,

Over the past few months I have made some mindset changes that have greatly benefited my quality of life. I have been able to make progress in dealing with some of the self-consciousness and anger that have plagued my life.

However, I have found it extremely difficult to alleviate the feelings of guilt that I, seemingly, experience everyday. Everytime I look at my reflection I see severe (from my perspective atleast) scarring. Moreover, I can't help thinking that if I was more preemptive in my treatment of acne, initially I didn't take it seriously enough, I would not have scarring to the extent that I now do. This is a terrible feeling, as there is nothing I can do. Also, these feelings have hindered my ability to sleep; I find myself wishing I could go back in time and take a more serious appoach to acne from the beggining.

Therefore, first of all, I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar? Secondly, do you have any advice to dealing with this kind of guilt?

Thanks in advance!
