Low self-esteem, fear, loathing to see ourselves in the mirror, always with our heads down and our backs to the sun and the crowd, feeling like an alien or a vampire. The mood is pulled by acne and we lose the initiative over our emotions. We like to read the posts of others who have succeeded in their battles as if we have succeeded too. Fantasize about how great it would be if we could get a new face. Fantasize that our lives would be better without acne. Some people may not understand our feelings, will think we fuss, some will laugh at us ...... we have obviously tried very hard to do but still as usual, even if there is some improvement but in the end will always be beaten back to the original shape. The depressing emotions of helplessness, pain and low self-esteem are intertwined in our minds.
I want to hold your hands when you are sad, I want to gently pat your back to soothe you, I want you to be able to feel the strength of my firm company, and I want to say to you: you have worked hard, if you want to cry, just cry, don't suppress yourself. There is no need to restrain your emotions with any so-called axioms, forcing yourself to not care.
I've been in a state of depression and despair for three years in high school because of my acne. I can't even take my studies seriously because of acne, I'm overwhelmed with sadness when I grow a pimple and squeeze a pimple, I feel like the sky is falling down. At that time, I did not know what is happy, what is happiness, I was just a person, with the so-called axiom to comfort myself.
Now that I'm in college, although I have less acne, but I can say I never really let go of him, I still get sad over it, and write this to you when I get acne. I actually want to tell you that your own mindset no one can change, no matter how much doctrine you have heard, you have not really accepted it from the bottom of your heart then you can never change. In fact, now you just need to, as far as possible, not to pay too much attention to it, to divert attention.
Your low self-esteem also comes from your own ability to think about if you are very capable, very talented, acne on your impact will be minimal. So, you need to channel your energy about acne into your studies. Do more meaningful things. Read more books. Maybe you'll never really be able to let go like I did, but you have to remember that it will all pass. I'm not going to say much more than that, I've been there, I know how you feel, my inferiority complex and you will only be there. But I'm still alive and well, I'm not dead, even though I still have acne, I'm still bothered by him. If you can't change it, you shouldn't, and if you have low self-esteem, you have low self-esteem. But what you still do well is still to do well! Even in pain, still insist on doing your own thing well!
Then, I also want to share with you my current strategy: live a regular life and eat right, look in the mirror less, keep yourself busy, and keep making yourself better in other ways. Remember that everything will pass. Maybe it will all work out for the best!
Finally, I sincerely wish you all the best, to live happily and to face the eyes of others with confidence.
