Don’t live your youth feeling insecure, nobody is above you…Having struggled with acne for over 13 years, I would say it has been a bittersweet experience.

Depression, struggle with acceptance, anxiety, and low self-esteem have been my companion for a while, a long while. But as the years roll, I’ve learned to see myself beyond my face (recognized my inner beauty, Lol!), know my worth beyond my face, and come to terms with the fact that, hey, I’m much more than a face with acne. I won’t lie to you; it’s not easy at all, no human is made of steel, and once in a while, it’s okay to drop your head and cry, release the tension…it’s good for your body; it doesn’t spell weakness.

Dealing with the baggage acne invaded face brings at a young age is never easy but remember that you have only one life to live. Are you going to spend your youth doubting your appearance and waiting for approval from people and then spend your old age regretting why you lived your youth in anxiety?? I guess not.

You are more than a face with acne! You are the one whom Christ died for, and that’s a big deal! You are to die for!!! You are the righteousness of God in Christ; whether you admit it or not, you are a very big deal. Live like it. Don’t leave your youth feeling insecure; nobody is above you…
