Acceptance is the key heard it thousands of time but I guess life taught me the hardest way possible.
I have had mild acne for the last few years. But back in January 2020 it reached its peak. There was not even a single pinch of clear skin on my face. From home remedies to expensive products I tried almost everything but nothing seemed very effective.
It felt as if everything is just about this acne. Every day waking up and making up my mind for going out used to take so much effort. I think I had this constant fear of being judged. and sometimes I just wish I could have a good conversation with people.
I realized, I was expecting others to accept me when even I was not accepting myself. So just one day I stood in front of the mirror and told myself,” You’re looking beautiful, yes you look beautiful “. From that day something changed, I felt a little light and happy and a little less bad about myself.
I still get breakouts now and then, I have acne marks, my skin is not completely healed yet. And I’m still on medication and with all the other medicines I take a pill of self-love every single day. Things are going quite well.
So stretch your body a lil every day, have a clean diet and get proper medical care, and with all that don’t forget to love yourself.
With whatever you’re struggling in life, I know it must be really difficult for you but trust me it will get better. Do some research about it, talk to someone, or just talk to yourself, if it is needed, get the proper medical attention. No matter how hard it seems today, “this is just a phase, you will get over it soon”.
