Why do we have to go through this?

Recommended Posts


I'm 17 years old with a huge self confidence issue, due to acne. I've been suffering with it for nearly 4 years. Everyday, I look around, and see everybody, old and young, and even people my age who have acne free faces. I always say to myself "God, you're so lucky to have an acne free face."

I'm afraid to go out because of my acne, and sometimes even my own friends turn against me and make fun of it. I've even had little kids stare at my face and they seem kind of puzzled by it. I've wanted to experience the thrill of having a clear face, just like I used to back when I was younger.

I've tried what seems almost every product that to exists, however, none of it appears to be reducing it. There were times, this past year I was so frustrated with my acne, I would hide in my room and weep until either my parents or my sister would come in and try their best to help me out.

One day I even lost control of my emotions and went and punched a massive hole in the wall because I was that angry about my acne, that's when I realized that it went too far and I just wanted out. I wanted to die because of this.

Acne seems to have affected the way I am with women. When I go and talk to a girl, she usually seems to be really turned off by my acne. I feel like nothing is going right.

Why do we humans have to deal with this? What does it all come down to? The food we eat? The way we live? Is it scientific or does it eventually come down to something that cannot be explained?

It's not really much to ask to have clear skin, is it?

acne is an awful thing that almost everyone has to go through. Just hang in there. Try and stay positive. Remember, it won't be around forever. I have acne as well, although my acne used to be much worse, so I know what it's like.
