One breakout is not the end of the world

Recommended Posts

I've been relatively clear for the last month or so. My relatives said my skin looked much better. My coworker, who is beautiful, out of the blue said I was handsome. After SIX LONG YEARS of acne, I was on top of the world.

Last week I had kind of a nasty breakout, and now my left cheek has some very noticeable red marks left over. It's decently bad.

Yesterday..I felt like absolute garbage..this was supposed to be my year where I could finally go on..I was on my knees in the middle of my room asking God why..

Today, my cheek still looks pretty bad, and I'll have to face my mom this weekend, who spent tons on derm appointments and tazorac..(i feel like i'm letting her down).

But you know what, I feel a bit better today, and I think I'll feel better tomorrow. I had a great conversation with a friend, and an insanely tough professor told me personally that I'm a smart kid.

I realize that its just a breakout, the marks will take hella long but they will fade, and its possible that i'll have more in the future.

I know its hard...trust me..I KNOW..but you are not your acne, so please, try not to let it get you down 100% of the time.

sorry for the rant anyway.
