I still rely a lot on make up, but I have a very loving and supportive boyfriend who sees me without my makeup and loves me all the same. He even tells me my skin looks better without makeup (as if!). But I appreciate it nonetheless. I feel pretty lucky for never having too many family members/friends comment on my acne or "suggest" things like ProActive as though I've never tried it before. They would never say anything negative because they knew it upset me and would encourage me to try something new to help my acne.
Like you, my battle with active acne is over, but I have some scars and hyperpigmentation that is just as hard to get rid of. Still, this long journey (10 years!) has taught me to be nicer to other people. I wish I didn't need to have acne to learn this lesson, but I'm thankful for it anyway. It's made me be more considerate because I know we all have insecurities, and a lot of the time people like to pick on those to make themselves feel better. But having been on the receiving end of that for so long, I would never want to hurt someone like that.
It's nice to be reminded of all the good that has come out of it. And just in time for Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it.
