Requesting positive vibes

I am having an extremely difficult time accepting my acne scars. I breakdown regularly about it and I need some honest feedback because I may be building it up in my head, and I want to stop robbing myself of joy. 

I have some pictures here and I am just hoping to make it through this week as with all the holiday parties I am feeling especially self-conscious.

This acne journey has stolen so much time and confidence from me that I will be seeing a counselor about it because I am not coping well. I spent over $3000 on microneedling this year and it caused an outbreak that gave me more, even deeper scars.

Your scars are a testament to how far you've come.  Acne is a beast as is many skin disorders.  Part of winning the battle is our mindset.  Allowing yourself to feel frustrated about your scars is good but then let those feelings go.  Print out a picture of your acne at your worst and place it next to a picture of your current skin.  You will see the progress and be reminded that you are much further along than you were before.

 

Merry Christmas!  Get out there and shine like a diamond!
