In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

17 October 2014 - 05:54 PM

<p>My friend sent a text and it said &quot;acne&quot; instead of &quot;can&quot; in a sentence. He then sent another text saying &quot;stupid auto correct.&quot;&nbsp;</p>
<p>Even though I know for a fact that it was auto correct, it didn't stop me from obsessing for about an hour of whether or not he was making fun of my acne. Two decades of having people blatantly make fun of and insult me because of my acne has made me so paranoid that I now think some people are making fun of me when they're not.</p>

 

Get over it.

If she really has a paranoid personality disorder, then it is absolutely useless to say stuff like that. You don't get over some personality disorders. They are part of who you are.

Women do prefer nice guys! Now maybe when they are very young its different but when they hit later 20's and 30's all that crap goes out the window! All my single women friends just want a nice guy that will treat them right and be a good husband, father etc. Looks fade so you better have something else to back it up down the road anyway.

 


Women only want nice beta male idiots once they've slept with all of the exciting men during the years they are good looking. Nice guys pay full price for a used car.

I agree with this, except I would replace "beta male idiot" with "not-so-exciting-and-good-looking-in-girls-eyes male".

In my experience dating and having acne has been more challenging than my Linear Algebra class (which is ridiculously grueling). Feeling insecure is unattractive to men. And I agree that confidence is so significant when dating. Although in my case I suffer terrible anxiety and having acne makes it more severe.

What has worked for me is being honest towards whomever I am seeing about my insecurities towards my blemishes. I don't need to tell the universe that I'm insecure. Everyone has insecurities whether it is pimples, feeling insignificant, being broke, lacking sexual experience or being unintelligent. People have problems. Unfortunately, some of our "bumps in the road" are literally visible on our face. And to be honest all of those insecurities I listed above, I deal with every day.

Fear keeps us back from being the best we can be. 

Hey, I like you :)

You can insecure if you want to. I don't mind :)

No, an overlap is not excluded. The world you live in can be the entire world. In fact, I am now part of the world you live in. It has nothing to do with ownership. I am not using the word "own" that way.

Idk though... he has over 1 million subscribers just on one of his channels, meaning he has quite the influence on many people other than myself. We are by no means "in our own world." rather we actually have established that there is power behind Elliott's word. You are definitely hinting at a point to describe him as distant or different, when in fact there's evidence proving that he is not. Let's take a look at what's truly happening here. I made a thread saying that his videos will help people, and that they've helped me, and all I'm seeing is negativity because you don't agree with him. He never said anything to harm anyone. This is primarily focused on improvement, and if you can't handle that, then don't reply. Simple as that.

I am willing to believe his intentions are good and that you get something out of what he says. That he has influence is okay. However, his influence may not be good for everyone and what he says can be wrong. He is a human being and therefore fallible. I personally feel that I am not negative, but I admit that I am sceptical. I am allowed to disagree with other people and I am allowed to post here. That is not against the rules.

What I actually meant with "stranger in his own world" is that he is not wise. He has zero knowledge about mental disorders and what he says is evidence for that.

I did not say that your world is different from his.

You said "your own world" which by definition means apart from anyone else's
