The other day I was thinking---

If a friend came in with a huge breakout, would any of us (my friends and I) stop being friends with him/her? No, of course not, that's ridiculous.

If the guy I like came in with a breakout, would I stop liking hi? ^Same answer.

This never really occured to me before. I won't lose any friends simply because of my acne unless they weren't really my friends/were complete assholes. Sure, maybe it doesn't help me make new friends or anything, and I'm sure if I really started letting acne affect my personality (not just my grades lol) my friends would have a harder time being around me. But for now, acne doesn't affect my real friendships.

This may be terribly obvious, but it certainly made me feel a hell of a lot better.

i believe this too. people you are already close too and have good relationships with, family, friends, girl/boyfriends, wont be bothered by an occational bad breakout, as long as it doesnt change your personality.

Of course, that's assuming you've got friends or potentials before you got acne... :boohoo:

I was thinking the same thing a while back. I was at a friend's house and went to the bathroom... which had horrifically bright lights and a squeaky-clean mirror, and I looked horrible. I was wondering why on Earth he would be friends with someone so hideous... and yeah, your train of thought followed, and I had a little revelation.
