#3336336 Update On Scars; Crying & Feeling Disfigured

Posted by Carrie2013 on 26 March 2013 - 10:58 AM

I completely understand what you’re going through. Honestly, to that last detail. My photos do no justice on how severe my scarring is. So while I apologize that you’re going through this, I also wanna give you props for being brave enough to expose you’re insecurities. In my opinion, that’s the first step. Healing can begin tongue.png

 

From girl to girl, I can relate. People tell me constantly that I’m very pretty despite my scars, that my personality outshines any physical flaw, that they’re really not that bad. I’ve heard it all.  And our initial response is to think they’re lying to make us feel better, or maybe they just want us to shut up about it, but please know that you’re not alone in this. EVERYONE is struggling with a mind set that says “ I’m just not good enough” Or pretty enough,  skinny enough, tall enough, PERFECT enough. And

 

Once again, I’m so sorry that you’re having to get past this hurdle. But my advice to you is what I’m telling myself day in and day out. Play the hand you’re dealt. So what? You’re flawed. But aren’t we all? Life is happening right now and we’re obsessed over our skin and perfection and what society thinks about us. Take a stand today- “ I will love myself unconditionally.”

 

And remember you’re defined as a package made up of features. You’re not definied by your “flawed” feature alone. You are good enough wink.png

Wow, you're brave! I hope everything turns out well. The doctor managed to make the procedure sound so casual. "Ah, while you're in the neighborhood lets just cut some holes in your face and stitch em' back up" ;)

 

Nonetheless, I wish you the very best! 

 

 

And as for the OP, thanks for the heads up. I've been contemplating scar treatments for a while, but I think I'll put that to rest. The fact remains that we are unable to see what others do, and our scars will always be magnified in our eyes until we manage to shift our perception. 

 

I can tell you for one, my scars are pretty noticeable (to me anyway) but I still manage to go on a lot of dates and meet a lot of new friends. Just goes to show, us acne/ scar sufferers MUST have the best personalities once we learn to look past our own flaws and decide to be confident based on our other features. 

 

Ah, well I will remain praying for you all. And as for you GUYS out there suffering with acne scars, put it to rest! I for one, think it gives you a certain rugged, manly appeal. Pretty boys are SO overrated. rolleyes.gif And girls, rock what you got! You're confidence and grace will win em over every time. Stop being so hard on yourself. So what? We don't look like these primped up barbies with 9 times out of 10 ugly attitudes. You are beautiful and you deserve happiness just as much as the next girl.
