Oh definitely, I believe there's a large proportion of us that really do care what others think, I wish were so easy to not let thoughts like that enter your brain. Sometimes I think about everyone in the world having acne, like say it was a 'normal' human thing to have on everyone, I wonder if people with clear skin would feel the way we do right now. A bit of a twisted logic but I find it an entertaining thought.
Fair enough. It's my logic though, in fact its not logic to me, its obvious. I literally can and do see beautiful people with acne. It's only a universal definition of we believe it to be, yeah a lot of people do find"acne" unattractive but why should we care about them? Why should we feel we need to fit in by having clear skin or a slimmer figure. For ourselves yes, but no-one else.
If someone doesn't accept me for my skin issues out other issues then that their problem.
Having a "fat acceptance" movement is far different from finding the beauty in acne, come on.
I have grew up with acne since 11 years old, so in a way my "beauty" grew on me with it and I was never regarded less for it by anyone, I have amazing friends and have had many relationships. I was never regarded as ugly out unattractive, ever. I think personality plays a huge part in an overall person but if you don't see my logic then that's just fine.
I think we all care what others think about us, otherwise we wouldn't be on this website. I'm not saying that having acne automatically makes someone unattractive. I agree that people can be beautiful in spite of their acne. But acne itself is unattractive and can only hurt your overall appearance.
It's just I know, we all know how hard it can be. My skin still is no way near perfect but I'm done with letting it control me, which it can do and does sadly do to people. Its shit that we believe so much that its unattractive and we feel less of a person for it need cause we shouldn't, there's more to a person than their skin and the more I look at people's skin in real life the more I see that acne is pretty common these days even the dreaded clogged pore skin look that I friggin' HATE on myself.
I just personally think we can all be pretty and beautiful in our own way with it, people that think your not as really shallow
