    How would it feel to have clear skin...

    Having to have acne for awhile, when i sleep at night all i think about is how it would feel to have clear skin, i thought about all the girls that am gonna talk to... walking with my heads up, be able to talk to people face to face instead of tilting in a way to hide your pimples and scars...

    sigh...

    Re: How would it feel to have clear skin...

    i know what you are saying...i often think about how many more things i could do if i didn't have acne. it's not that i can't do everything that i want to, i guess it all boils down to not feeling good enough.

    i realize this is a negative thought pattern.

    i had to go meet my sister at her workplace tonite. she asked me to visit her during her break time. i told her to meet me outside, i'd wait for her in my car.
    she works at a store in the town we grew up in. i decided that since we'd probably just sit there and talk, there was no sense in putting on makeup.
    it was dark out by the time i had to go. and as i waited i worried about someone seeing me. i was nevrous the whole time.
    i sat there and asked myself what exactly i was so afraid of happening.
    i was afraid that some would see my face and think i am ugly. and i thought, "but I KNOW i'm not ugly." and then i thought, "but they will think i am." and i had to reassure myself that even if someone thinks i'm ugly, i know that they would be wrong.
    so why do i let this fear consume me?

    basically what i'm saying, in a few too many words <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
    is that i alse wish i didn't feel the need to hide

    I know how this feels too... usually though I was cool with tons of people (since I started my bad break outs at 17).

    but I noticed thru-out the years there would be certain "pricks" who would try to humiliate me, or demoralize me because of my acne. What I do about it? Me and my boyz messed them up HAHAHAHHA....

    Sometimes its good to be trained in Martial Arts and Boxing HAHAHAH... and have friends who train with you.

    By all means I'm not trying to tell anyone to resort to violence. (please Don't Resort to VIOLENCE, it just makes situtations worse). I was a pretty dumb teenager though, and I let my emotions get the better of me.

    My only reason for this post is to show how I dealt with the "dicks" who tried to make me feel low. I made them feel much lower... floored them to the damn floor. LOL

    we will only feel inferior if we allow ourselves to.

    why give someone else that much power over our us?

    we can't control ANYTHING that happens during our life. we can only control how we respond to it.

    Re: How would it feel to have clear skin...

    looking back, what really depress me is that, i used to jugde people with acne and thought to myself, damn 50% of the school have some kind of pimple and i have a clear skin then i started to start looking at my skin everyday admire how smooth it looks and for some wierd reason started feeling it, at first 1 pimple start and then i started picking on them, then 2 before you know it, i had pimples everywhere!

    i regret it sooo much... i could have had clear skin rightnow... or maybe not, i might get it sooner or later but still there could have been a chance where i dont even have a single pimple, i dint till i start touch my face!

    i guess my point is dont touch your face!
