So, i have been on this subreddit for i believe 3 years by now, my skin is miles better then what it was, acne was what i told myself to be my biggest concern but now a days i have that under control but the scars are left behind and texture exists as well.

There are days where i look at myself and i’m happy to see the person in the mirror, those are the days i take advantage to take pictures experiment with clothes, go out, talk to friends and engage in romantic conversations. On the days i wake up and dont see what i want to see its like pounds and pounds of disappointment are thrown on me, i stare at myself almost the whole time beating myself up about it and asking why its like this when i try so hard and this probably could stem from my reason of starting skin care which was to look good for someone i liked back then which in turn led to a lot of self destructive tendency’s when i felt like i looked “undesirable”.

Two days ago i was feeling pretty happy of how i was doing and it has lasted a while but recently i had a crash that stemmed from a burning feeling from my face and when i looked at myself it was that shiny greasy but dry look and it made me feel dreadful completely to the point of not wanting to do anything and my skin just looks textured despite feeling soft and it just doesn’t make sense to me and then i think back to my mental breakdowns and i feel like i associate skin care with those more sad moments in life where it felt like a gate was preventing me to achieve what i want, it also is frustrating that i do so much for it and it still acts up.

I know i’m not the only one and i would like to ask what do you guys go through in terms of skin problems?

Tldr- Somedays i like my skin and i’m like “yay” and on the days i dont i just wanna waste away and self degrade myself despite looking the same as when i liked myself

***UPDATE***- found out my ex also found someone new and now it has triplefied lmao
