Hi guys! This is definitely not my first rodeo when it comes to blogging, especially when it comes to my acne but it is my first experience strictly devoted to the emotional aspect of having a skin disorder that most people grow out of by the time they're in their 30's. Acne has had a more psychological impact on my life than any other single event. It also has the dubious honor of extending over half of my life as I am 30 and I have been dealing with this in one form or the other since I was 15.
I plan to update often and to bare my soul and my skin to you all so that I can truly let go of this self hatred that I have been carrying around for so long. Another component of this blog is to record how I am letting God be in charge of how I deal with my acne. For too long, I have stressed and worried and cried over something I have ZERO control over and it has served me no purpose except to bring severe, mind crippling depression on me. Well today is a new day! I am a recent Christian who is putting my faith out there and casting my cares about acne unto him who gives my very body life. I don't expect this to make my acne go away but my hope is that it will deepen my relationship with God, allow me to finally accept the me of NOW and to love myself the way that God intended.
Would love to hear the feedback of others. Any other Christians out there?
