Though Im not one for a depressing post, I can't help but just feel awful now. I mean my skin was getting better a couple days ago then I looked at it again and its sweaty and clogged and repulsive. I feel like I don't wan to do anything anymore (sadly thats not an option because I have to visit family today) and I feel a little better when I'm with my friends but still... I burden my family too much because Im always complaining. Its just harder because I don't want to pick at my skin even though I see all these clogged pores. Luckily I work with horses during the summer so Ill try my best not to wear makeup there. Its weird though. I always feel like I have to wear makeup because I might meet my first bf. Infatuation. Eh what can I say. It just getting to the point where I can't look in the mirror without feeling overwhelmed. And last night my face got all pussy so I had to pop them and now Im red and swollen. Even on my lip! There was one near my lip and now it looks like I have plastic surgery. Ugh.

And of course my makeup is always darker on one eye....

Here's a picture I put of the same face with makeup. Oh I wish you viewed life through the crappy lighting that is photobooth.

It doesn't seem so bad. Try and look on the bright side and get on with things. Sometimes easier said than done of course, and it took me a very long time to figure it out. I was so wrapped up in the negative thoughts and being down about my acne, but it's just acne.

Things could always be worse and it's not like it actually stops us or physically prevents us from doing things and enjoying our lives. We allow it to do that. We allow it consume us.

You've seen things improve lately, so it's bound to be disheartening if things seem to take a step back, but at least you've seen what it can be like and you know that you can feel better about yourself. Make that your goal and focus on it. The positive approach to that starts to cancel out the negative thoughts. You can get there.
