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.
