Week 2 (Day 8)

As another year comes to a close, I must say that this year has had its ups and downs. My ups included:

  • Becoming a Christian. This by far has been the best decision of my life. To know that there is someone that Loves me as I am and who I can rely on in my peaks and valleys is AMAZING. I am still struggling and I am trying to let go of my many vices but he has been there regardless.
  • Forming a bond with my close friends. This was the year that I really bonded with my friends. I feel as if I have opened up and allowed them in, more than I have before. I have also made great efforts to see them more often
  • Being less about me and more about others. I have finally allowed God to use me and I have started to give back in a way I had not before.


    Some of my struggles this year included:

    • My acne. It's back and accutane is not an option right now. I am back to topicals and Thank the Lord, my eczema has not flared yet. It's been rough but with God's strength, I am holding on.
    • Trying to keep on the straight and narrow. Since making a decision to become a Christian, I am struggling with my vices and it's been hard. It is especially hard when I feel depressed or my skin is acting up which is all the time.
    • My Depression. It has gotten tons better but its still in the background like a shadow. Acne makes it worse but reading my bible, praying and keeping in contact with friends and family helps me to keep moving forward even when my mind says, 'don't bother'
    • Being Lonely. This was the year of engagements...a lot of them. I haven't been in a LTR in a long time and I have put dating on hold too, not because I don't want to make a connection but because I feel so insecure about my skin. I feel like i'll forever be single and the thought scares me. I don't even know where to begin anymore.

    With that said, I am looking for 2014 to end and for 2015 to begin. I am hoping this is the year that things finally fall into place for me but who knows what the future holds. All I know is that God will get me through it. As for my acne, I can't tell if supplements or differin is helping or not. I am getting more cystic stuff that is painful, under the skin and red/purple. My diet has been horrendous so hopefully I can get back on track as soon as possible.

    Thank you all for the support and looking forward to continuing with this wonderful community in the next year.

    Peace and Love
