Today my six year old daughter asked me, 'what's that big red thing on your cheek?!'. It just reminds me that everywhere I go without make-up, my acne is probably the first thing people notice I've had acne for so long now, that I really don't let it effect my self-esteem. I think since I'm an adult now it's easier to recognize the people that truly love and care about me regardless of my skin. I made some true friends in high school that luckily were never cruel (alteast not to my face) about my acne, but I also heard the whispers that the other kids would make. Acne is a hard thing to ignore and I know that I would never judge someone because of it, but I also know that it is the first thing I notice. Acne did some pretty devestating things to me socially growing up. I hope my kids never have to deal with that.
Well, hopefully I will stop breaking out soon and start clearing up...
