After all, you think it looks ugly when you look in the mirror. Society seems to support the idea that acne is unattractive. And ok, not trying to crush you further, but studies have shown that people do rate it as being unattractive. So that must mean that YOU are also unattractive because you have it. Assuming that as soon as a love interest saw I had spots, they would basically lose their boner on the spot. So is it really true that acne, by default, makes you unattractive? Acne is just a thing. A thing that in itself might not be particularly attractive says our current societal standards.

A thing that would be great if it would just go away. Everyone struggles with something. Acne is just something you happen to struggle with. That struggle is a small part of the beautiful essence of who you actually are. A small part of the your glorious, beautiful, messy humanness. It does not comprise of your entire being. We are very reductionist. We tend to reduce everything that we are to being a singular flaw. A singular flaw that we assume is completely valid basis for utter rejection by everyone we know and will ever meet.

Or it could be any of undesirable personality or life circumstances. This changes everything. In reality, attraction is so much more than that. Your personality, your laugh, your sense of humour, your mannerisms, the way you move, your dreams, your ambitions, the way you carry yourself, the things you have in common, etc etc.

Some of it is looks, of course, but acne does not comprise of your entire appearance either. Not to mention that attractiveness in general is so subjective, what is attractive to one person is not to another and vice versa. Whether you had acne or not, you will not be attractive to every single person out there yes, a hard truth for us perfectionists in the crowd. Perfection is not necessary for you to be loved, desired, and cared for. THEY see her beauty. You are more than acne, and your attractiveness is more than your skin.

To someone with acne it seems infathomable that others could look past it, because we see it as all that we are. But think of how you relate to others — do you choose your friends and lovers based on their entire lack of flaws? Do you choose your acquaintances based on their great skin or lack of belly fat? Everyone you love comes with some good and some bad. Have you reduced to yourself to being nothing more than your skin?
