This entire world judges people by there face.

Ive noticed because my acne goes up and down.

Sometimes im clear and sometimes im not.

I go from Mild to moderate to clear back to mild all in a month. lol

Whenever Im clear everything seems easier people are nicer and give me respect.

When im not clear its the opposite.

I hate that this world has to be like this.

I think yours is a harsh assumption! No, I think that everything seems easier and people are nicer due to your increased self esteem on clear days which enables a more positive outlook of others' reactions to your skin and the rose colored glasses this feeling can cause.

It might be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Hmm I don't think your friends care but I understand that you get diffrent reactions from other people, I do the same if I see a girl who looks hot I'm gonna try and be nicer to her than someone I don't feel is attractive(not saying I won't be polite).

*sings* "Your face is your fortune,

some wise man once spoke.

My face is my fortune -

that's why I'm totally broke!

Well, my ship ain't come in,

but I grin while I bear,

cuz I've got my A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H -

I....

got no diamond, got no wealth,

I ain't go no man-

but I got my health!"

well, i wouldn't go so far as to say that people treat ME with less respect or anything now that my acne is really bad, but i definitely think people have stereotypes for people with acne, which is really too bad. for example, this one kid on my track team, who is one of my friends, but still, occasionally tells me something like "geez man, ever heard of facewash!" (jokingly), but i think this shows that a lot of people think that you're not DOING anything to get rid of your acne.

I'm getting some plastic surgery done in a month, and I'm rather curious to see if people are a little nicer and warmer to me off the bat. I'm gonna be sure to act just as I do now, but we'll see if people reactions toward me change simply based on how I look.

from my experience it's very much the case.

i judge people on how they look too so i guess i can't complain !

acne is so shit because you can never get used to how you look as it's always changing, mostly in a bad way.

I think rather than it being in how people act towards you it is probably how you act towards them and so how they percieve you back, for example if your at a clear stage you migth have more confidence and so people may percieve you differently and so act back to you accordingly :)

Personally I think look is important for first impressions and maybe in high school, but personally I think what counts the most is what is INSIDE... if you're beautiful on the inside it shines on the outside.
