All It Takes Is One Rude Comment :(



I found my confidence recently. Acne was finally not a problem. I was smiling and happy and going on dates with wonderful guys. Life was good.

Then today one of my close friends saw me drinking a shake and asked why. I replied "I want to look good for the beauty pageant I'm doing next year!" He simply replied "What are you going to do about your acne? Girls with acne never win."

And in that moment, I lost my confidence. I couldn't find it anymore. I just put my head down and walked away. Ugly girls don't win. I'm ugly. This acne will never leave. He's right.

So I'm back to square one. Considering on canceling my date tomorrow and just staying in and watching TV. Better than being out with a guy who might think less of me because of my acne.

Hey, hear me please. Don't let people bring you down!! If I learned something from my experience with acne is that people will ALWAYS want to bring you down.. it's simpler with a less rival, doesn't it? Our problem is that we consider ourselves inferior to other people and it's not right. We should be stronger than them because we have passed a bad time that they haven't passed. What we need to learn is that people don't help, don't kid yourself.. When someone says to you "you have acne", just think "soon my acne will leave, your badness and your inner ugliness (and maybe also outward) won't. "

Wish you the best!

Learn to humour yourself and also people who make remarks….:) beautiful is not what one looks like but what one does, anyway… I can tell you a story. My mother never had acne but all her life she thought of herself as very ugly physically since she was a child. She decided when someone made comment about her looks that she will excel in everything else and do better than anyone and prove them that she is great even without good looks. And she did: she excelled at playing piano, she sings amazingly well, she cooks great and she made a career anyone can be jealous of. So, the challenges we face in life are there to push us not down but up. Challenge is there for us to overcome our selves, our egos, fears, doubts etc…and when we do-we bring light into this world. I wish you strength and courage to rise up to any challenge you face.:)

Acne will leave. I know because mine left. I had a face covered with pimples, big small white green yellow crusty bloody etc...I was so depressed, then I found Amoxil. Amoxil is an antibiotic rx that you can get from a dermatologist. My skin is clear now and I never thought it would be. Keep seeing a dermatologist and you will eventually find a regimen that works. There are lots of treatments available and many of them work quite well. Just don't give up.
