Positive Thinking Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay I believe positive thinking is what's helped me most with my acne. I think its more important than your actual regimen. Heres what I learned that is helping me battle the hardships of having acne -

1) Most of the fear and worry is all in your head - When you look in the mirror you exaggerate your acne. Most the of the time people don't even notice/care because they are too busy with their own lives and their own insecurities.

2) 'Feel the fear and do it anyway' - If you are scared of facing people that makes you feel trapped inside your house from weeks on end. Acknowledge the fear and go out anyway. You will soon realise that all the bad scenarios you make in your head most of the time never happens.

3) Look in the mirror less - If you look in the mirror and get immediately depressed about your acne. Only look at it from afar if you really need to. Like I said before everyone exaggerates their flaws.

4) Be confident, smile, and live your life - Pretty much what is says. People notice personality more than appearance. If you are depressed and upset about acne you will give off a negative vibe. If you are positive, confident and cheerful, people will be attracted to you.

5) Be humble and grateful - Remember there are people in tougher situations still carrying on with their lives whether they have diseases, deformities, poverty, loss of a loved one etc. Be grateful for the things you have in life whether it be a loving family, roof over your head, food, gf/bf etc.

I hope other people will please share the advice, quotes, videos, music etc. that have helped them overcome acne to help the many that are in need on this board. Thanks for taking your time to read this.

Nice post. I definitely agree with 3,4, and 5. 1 and 2 I've not always found to be true, especially when my acne has been at it's worst. Sometimes I've gone out in a good mood not worried about my acne, but then something happens (somebody makes a comment or people just look at your spots when you're talking) and it kind of ruins the rest of the day. It's still good to have that attitude though.

I agree with the being greatful part 100%.. We all have atleast something to be greatful for but too many times we think about we dont have instead of what we do have.. We forget our everyday accomplishments and worry about what hasnt been accomplished or still needs to be accomplished.

The most positive thing I can think of, is that... I guarantee, there will come a day when you realize you are now counting down the days instead of counting up. And when that starts happening, it changes your whole life. You start obsessing over time and relate everything to time, because you realize time is your greatest enemy in life. It supersedes everything. That's when you realize that no matter how down you feel, or inadequate, or poor... No matter how pissed you are about how things worked out, or how much you resent people for things they did... You start to realize none of that matters in the end. Because you can keep on being pissed all you want, and blame people all you want... and it isn't going to change a damn thing. That's when you realize you have to do the best you can with what you can, or everything will be a complete waste. And that is unacceptable. Because I look at life as sometimes being an enemy... If you let it take you down, then it wins. It has kicked your ass, and you lose. Are you going to let that happen? Are you going to let life kick your ass and win? Is that what you want to be known for... the guy that curled up and just let life kick your ass? After all the effort and all the work... to get this far, and then that's it... You're done? I don't think so. So rather than wait 20 years to figure that out... Just skip over that part and make the best with what you have now. If you don't, you will hate yourself later, and that will be something that you can't blame on acne or anything else. It will just be on you.

:wub: Love this song! :wub:

Click here to watch

"Beautiful" by Eminem

[intro]

Lately I've been hard to reach

I've been too long on my own

Everybody has a private world

Where they can be alone

Are you calling me

Are you trying to get through

Are you reaching out for me

I'm reaching out for you

[Verse 1]

I'm just so fucking depressed, I just can't seem to get out this slump

If I could just get over this hump,

but I need something to pull me out this dump

I took my bruises, took my lumps, fell down and I got right back up

But I need that spark to get psyched back up,

in order for me to pick the mic back up

I don't know how or why or when, I ended up in this position I'm in

I'm startin' to feel distant again, so I decided just to pick this pen

Up to try to make an attempt to vent, but I just can't admit

Or come to grips with the fact that I may be done with rap,

I need a new outlet

And I know some shits so hard to swallow,

but I just can't sit back and wallow

In my own sorrow, but I know one fact, I'll be one tough act to follow

One tough act to follow, I'll be one tough act to follow

Here today, gone tomorrow, but you'd have to walk a thousand miles

[Chorus]

In my shoes, just to see, what it's like to be me

I'll be you, let's trade shoes, just to see what it'd be like to

Feel your pain, you feel mine, go inside each others minds

Just to see, what we find, look at shit through each others eyes

But don't let them say you ain't beautiful

They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

Don't let them say you ain't beautiful

They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

[Verse 2]

I think I'm starting to lose my sense of humor

Everything's so tense and gloom, I

Almost feel like I gotta check the temperature of the room

Just as soon as I walk in, It's like all eyes on me,

so I try to avoid any eye contact

Cause if I do that it then it opens the door for conversation,

like I want that

I'm not looking for extra attention, I just wanna be just like you

Blend in with the rest of the room,

maybe just point me to the closest restroom

I don't need no fuckin' man servant,

trying to follow me around and wipe my ass

Laugh at every single joke I crack, and half of them ain't even funny,

like "Ha!

Marshall, you're so funny man, you should be a comedian, god damn!"

Unfortunately I am, I just hide behind the tears of a clown

So why don't you all sit down, listen to the tale I'm about to tell, hell

We don't gotta trade our shoes, and you ain't gotta walk no thousand miles

[Chorus]

In my shoes, just to see, what it's like to be me

I'll be you, let's trade shoes, just to see what it'd be like to

Feel your pain, you feel mine, go inside each others minds

Just to see, what we find, look at shit through each others eyes

But don't let them say you ain't beautiful

They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

Don't let them say you ain't beautiful

They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

[Verse 3]

Nobody asked for life to deal us with these bullshit hands we're dealt

We gotta take these cards ourselves, and flip them, don't expect no help

Now I could of either just sat on my ass, and pissed and moaned

Or take this situation in which I'm placed in, and get up and get my own

I was never the type of kid to wait by the door and pack his bags

Or sat on the porch and hoped and prayed for a dad to show up who never

did

I just wanted to fit in in every single place, every school I went

I dreamed of being that cool kid even if it meant acting stupid

Aunt Edna always told me, keep making that face til it gets stuck like that

Meanwhile I'm just standing there holding my tongue,

trying to talk like this!

Then I stuck my tongue on that frozen stop sign pole at eight years old

I learned my lesson then,

'cause I wasn't trying to impress my friends no more

But I already told you my whole life story, not just based on my description

Cause where you see it form where you're sitting,

is probably 110% different

I guess we would have to walk a miles in each others shoes at least

What size you wear, I wear 10's, let's see if you can fit your feet

[Chorus]

In my shoes, just to see, what it's like to be me

I'll be you, let's trade shoes, just to see what it'd be like to

Feel your pain, you feel mine, go inside each others minds

Just to see, what we find, look at shit through each others eyes

But don't let them say you ain't beautiful

They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

Don't let them say you ain't beautiful

They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

[Outro]

Lately I've been hard to reach

I've been too long on my own

Everybody has a private world

Where they can be alone

Are you calling me

Are you trying to get through

Are you reaching out for me

I'm reaching out for you

Yeah, to my babies, stay strong, dad will be home soon

And to the rest of the world... God gave you them shoes, to fit you

So put them on and wear them... be yourself man,

be proud of who you are

Even if it sounds corny...

don't ever let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful

I just find this song sick.

Another mission, the powers have called me away

Another time to carry the colors again

My motivation, an oath I've sworn to defend

To win the honor of coming back home again

No explanation will matter after we begin

Unlock the dark destroyer that's buried within

My true vocation and now my unfortunate friend

You will discover a war you're unable to win

I'll have you know

That I've become

Indestructible

Determination that is incorruptible

From the other side, a terror to behold

Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know

That their opponent had to be invincible

Take a last look around while you're alive

I'm an indestructible master of war!

Another reason, another cause for me to fight

Another fuse uncovered now, for me to light

My dedication to all that I've sworn to protect

I carry out my orders without a regret

My declaration embedded deep under my skin

A permanent reminder of how it began

No hesitation when I am commanded to strike

You need to know that you're in for the fight of your life

You will be shown

How I've become

Indestructible

Determination that is incorruptible

From the other side, a terror to behold

Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know

That their opponent had to be invincible

Take a last look around while you're alive

I'm an indestructible master of war!

I'm indestructible

Determination that is incorruptible

From the other side, a terror to behold

Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know

That their opponent had to be invincible

Take a last look around while you're alive

I am indestructible

Indestructible

Determination that is incorruptible

From the other side, a terror to behold

Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know

That their opponent had to be invincible

Take a last look around while you're alive

I'm an indestructible master of war!
