What a difference 8 months can make!

I sat worrying about my spots today. My skin is breaking out and it’s like I now have spots to contend with instead of eczema (obviously eczema is still needing to be controlled). I got frustrated that I’m getting lumps,  bumps and scars. Then I reflected on last October when my face was bright red, I wasn’t sleeping and I was soooo itchy. I was upset, tearful and down.

I in fact am grateful for the spots weird as it might sound. They are a lesser evil than eczema for sure, no sleepless nights yet! I’m now mediating, feeling calmer and managing the eczema quite well (fingers crossed). I don’t have to apply moisturiser every hour either!

But my spot prone skin is also causing scar damage and a pang to my self esteem once more (I can tell bevause I wear make up whenever I step out of my house….).

I don’t think it is wrong for me to strive for better skin. But I think it is important I take time (like now) to appreciate I’m now in a better place than I have been since I was 16. It’s not perfect but it’s not the worst I’ve been at…. I will improve my skin condition to where I don’t feel the need to cover it with make up because that’s what I want for me. I want to feel confident in my own skin. A skin I feel confident about when I bare it all.

I might aim high but I won’t aim for anything less…I wouldn’t have manageable eczema if I’d given up now would I….
