The way I see it now, if it wasn’t for acne- I simply would not be where I am today! Seeing countless practitioners of every variety: Doctors, beauticians, dermatologists, naturopaths, acupuncturists and nutritionists and having numerous treatments including colonics, juice fasts, micro dermabrasion and countless facials, I decided to study nutrition to learn in detail how to heal acne for myself…I decided to be my own guinea pig and if one of the talented practitioners I had seen had healed me, I doubt I would have walked down this path and changed my life (for the better) completely.
The positive quotes that say things like “It’s about the journey, not the destination” and “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards” really are very profound and meaningful.
What if you looked at your acne as a blessing, something SO hard to do, I know. But what if this acne situation really is happening to you for a reason? Maybe it’s so you delve a little deeper into yourself and learn something about yourself that you wouldn’t have otherwise. Maybe it’s so you investigate different paths and eventually, when you find the right path (and you will) it will lead you to the love of your life or to a career that is going to support you and carry you through life in a way that your current career never would have. Maybe it’s a means to change your current unhealthy patterns so that you avoid serious illness later in life, whatever it is, train yourself to look at this as impermanent, necessary and search far and wide for the answer as to why this is happening. Breathe deep, relax, release the inherent stress you have surrounding the state of your skin and flip perspective as best as you can.
