Small whitehead on my beard; otherwise clear.
I had lunch with the ex-girlfriend today. As Iâ€™ve noted in past entries, my skin issues began when my girlfriend and I broke up. While the breakout was primarily about her, I still questioned myself. Was I not charming enough, funny enough, attractive enough, etc? My vanity and insecurities led me to a flawed dermatologist who advised me to use harsh chemicals on my face leading to my issues today. But it all began with the breakup.
We hadnâ€™t seen eachother in 9 months; while most people would think this would be an awkward meeting, I needed it. The conversation was amiable but what was really important was what the conversation symbolized. My life had come full circle, making me appreciate the challenging journey I had been on and what Iâ€™ve learned from it.
Side effects: Chapped lips, slightly itchy skin, and red face.
