Struggles With Acne.

I am an 18 year old girl who has suffered from acne since the age of 13. I’m soon going to be 19 and I’ll have acne for 6 years. Acne always felt like a burden to me. It has always made me feel like utter crap about myself. Waking up early in the morning, and looking at a face filled with spots only makes things worse. Going to university, traveling in buses, and constantly being surrounded by people made me feel like everyone judged me. I would desperately try to hide my face with my long bangs, or look down. My self-esteem was completely shattered and I felt broken. I would feel so unmotivated to get up and do anything with my life. Seeing all these people around me who looked so happy and never struggled with acne made me feel worse. I felt that I had tried everything. Using every doctor recommended prescriptions, healthy diet, drinking loads of water, and exercising. But nothing helped. I didn’t even know what it felt like to have clear skin, ever. I thought, Why me? Why did acne choose me? Why not that girl who can eat all the unhealthiest foods in the world, and not get acne? Why not that girl who bullies me? I realized as I matured, I don’t regret getting acne. It has shaped the person I am today. It has made me kinder, nice, non-judgemental, understanding and humble. It feels weird stating all these words describing me, but without getting acne, I would never have realized the importance of my body and skin. I would have never realized the importance of not judging a person. Acne has made me understand that every person is going through some hard situation, whether it is acne, a medical problem, self-acceptance issues etc. Without acne, I wouldn’t be who I am today. This blog is a message to every single person who suffers from acne, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I understand how hard it is to be confident and happy. I understand the struggle of feeling so insecure and depressed. It is a hard situation right now, but trust me it will get better. Whether you are 13 or 40, keep searching for something that will work for you. It is out there and you just have to search a little bit more. But until then, remember that from a girl who suffers from acne, I am on this journey with you. I want to let you know that you are so beautiful, strong and amazing. You deserve every piece of happiness. You have to push through difficult times and emerge strong. Don’t let acne win! You need to win and conquer every situation, because YOU CAN! Whether one person reads this blog or hundreds, I hope I can make you feel even slightly more confident, strong and happy. My goal is with this blog is to inspire and motivate others, because nothing in this world would make me happier, than making other people happy. Have a great day, and thank you for reading. Until next time,
