So, I was going though my computer and finally sorting out my loads of pictures. And you know, I've always felt terrible about my acne (surprise.). But man, if I had the skin I had a year ago. It wasn't that bad, really. Well, compared to now. Or maybe it was just the camera that didn't pick it up. Although, no camera is of the terrible quality not to display the current red mess.

These pictures sparked an envy of my own skin. Like the same sort of desire I get when looking though a magazine or when I'm out with my clear friends. It was a strange, strange feeling.

its weird....like when i look back at pictures of me from a few years ago, i do feel envy for what my skin used to look like....and also i was a few pounds thinner (before i went to college..) ...but back wen the pictures were taken, i still wasn't that happy about the way i looked...so i just think its funny how i am longing to look like something that i wasn't even that happy to look like in the first place...lol well now im confusing myself...but you get what i mean... :confused:

I always think this. Always. My skin used to be amazing.

were you happy with the way you looked?

I was, until I read this book called "Invisible Monsters" by Chuck Palahniuk.

I've never been happy with how I looked because I can't seem to accpet my imperfections. Even when I was little before skin was an issue I had problems with the way I looked. I need to stop being such a perfectionist and accept me for who I am.
