How do you deal with the comments people make about your derma scars? I'm really insecure about them and people call them out all the time.

    This happens to me a lot too, especially when I have bad day of picking on my face. In fact, the other day my waiter accused my boyfriend of assaulting me and was worried I’d gotten hit. :( Things like this aren’t easy to deal with, but I guess I’ve learned to realize that picking is an issue that I have, and every person on this earth has their own troubles. What we struggle with may be more apparent physically than other people’s issues, but I guess just realizing that we are not alone in our troubles, and that it is okay to struggle because that is being human. Every day isn’t a step forward, but every day is a new chance to open up to yourself and accept who you are as a person, the good and the bad. ❤️ I guess realizing all of this stuff is what helps me on my bad days. As much as I don’t like to admit it, I am a very sensitive person, and I guess trying to accept who I am (even if I don’t love all of me) has been the most helpful.

    I have people all the time ask if I'm harming myself. It's hard. But thank you for writing that. I agree it's so important to accept who I am. Thank you
