Words can hurt more than sticks and stones...

Hello everyone!
Hope all is going well for you...
Tonight, I want to clarify my thoughts a little...

I have a short conversation to share with you...actually is just a remark of an old friend of mine...We have meet this Easter after almost an year and it's the second time when she sees my new and clear face :) We started to talk about our high-school stories when she told me on a serious voice : " I was terrified when I saw your face in that evening".

This scene is replaying over and over in my mind...I cannot understand why it sounds soo bad... I heard many bad things but none of them affected me like this...
My acne and my face is still a taboo subject; I don't like to talk about it with my friends...I'm ashamed and I prefer to let it go, to forget everything....

I know that I had severe acne and I looked pretty bad but I don't want to hear " I was terrified when I saw  you" even is the ugly truth...sometimes ignorance is blessing.
This truth doesn't set me free...it sets me on fire and gives depression.
When I'm feeling bad I don't need to hear how bad I look. Shut up bitch and keep your opinions for yourself...

I realized that in this life, many friends intend to be "helpful" but with a negative result. Even if is true what they're saying choose to not be affected by the words and stay strong. Ignore them. Go away from them.

If I'd had acne today and somebody will tell me that my face is terrifying, I will chose to stop thinking at this and instead of staying home and hide from the rest of the world, I'll go out and see how many people are really terrified. F*** y'all!
