I actually don’t have experience with that particular problem but I’m sure someone out there has freckles and knows how to cover them? :)
Scars and scabs on your skin don’t make you any less of a decent person. Your skin does not define you. Your disorder does not define you.
Something that many acne sufferers and compulsive skin pickers want to know is how to get rid of hyperpigmentation (rather than scars, which are actual changes in the collagen, leaving depressed or raised areas). The new US trend in skin-brightening products (more inoffensively named than in Asia…
Thank you so much for responding. Take care!
There are many reasons why people don’t just decide to end their relationships, and instead decide to cheat. Most of it is insecurity, or not being happy. The discussion about why people cheat can be a long one and has many variables, so it’s difficult to discuss in general.
But your job is not to keep someone happy. In a relationship your job is to work together to be respectful of each other and expand your relationship. You also have to work on yourself, since that the only person you can help, really. It takes work to build a relationship, and one person is not responsible for the others’ happiness.
Keeping secrets isn’t a good idea, so it may be best to be honest about your picking before you get into a serious relationship. You have to practice speaking about it and being comfortable bringing it up with a partner. If they hate you for that, then you should gladly move along to someone a lot cooler that loves you for you.
What if they suddenly hate your scars? What if they hate that you gained weight? Or have cancer? I mean if that makes someone leave you, you should be grateful that they did so. Wouldn’t you rather be with someone that loves you no matter what?
Sure, you’ll be sad and distraught if someone leaves you because of your scars, but it will just make you a stronger person in the end. You will reach out to nicer, more genuine people and exclude assholes from your life. Scars are like asshole detectors that way.
Well, the first rule of therapy is that if you are uncomfortable talking about something, it’s a good thing to talk about at therapy. Glad you’re in therapy. I encourage you to be honest and open about anything during therapy. That’s the way you can make the most progress. Good luck!
