  1. Most definitely ! As someone that suffers from Acne I have come a long way from not wanting to leave my house without makeup. I’ve managed to be comfortable in my own skin and realise Acne is normal. I’ve also seen conditions worse than mine so I now wear my bare, scarred and pimple filled face with no shame lol

      1. School. 8th grade i think… Buy nothing special happened… The braking point was in my last high school year when i just couldn’t deal with all the nonsense we were graded on… I guess the school system broke me

  2. Wisdom has given me the ability to say yes, but that answer was no for many decades. I like the person on the inside a lot more than I once did. I could lose 10-20 lbs but I’m happy with what I see on the outside. I stopped letting others define me and reduced the time beating myself up about things. I’m proud of my professional and more importantly personal accomplishments and relationships. Live, Love, Laugh.

  3. I’m working hard to make this happen soon. I’m usually way more critical than I should be. The answer would be sometimes I can smile because I’m healthy and sometimes no because the demons are present and strong.

    1. If you manage to overcome that and still get to the point where you can smile most of the time when you look in the mirror, it’s a very great sign that you’ll get better and better at it!

      1. Some days are easier than others. Some days, I can say “yup, you’re awesome, brokenness, flaws and all”. Other days, I criticize and question everything about myself.

      2. I think it’s somehow a good approach because that’s how we realize we’re humans and we can see what we love about ourselves and what we don’t. However, if we love and criticize the same thing, we need to have a deeper look there.

  4. There are days that I can smile, and others that I have to fake it. But often times, even when I start the day with a fake smile, it would end with a real one. I just have to try harder to find something to make me happy from the inside, rather than waiting for the things around me to be better than what they really are. It can be difficult especially with anxiety problems, but it is these small daily victories that prove that I am a survivor.

    1. Yes, that would be the best approach! Maybe you can find some things in your life for which you’re truly grateful for? Write them down and read them the first thing in the morning ans see how it goes for you 🙂

  5. Yes, I am able to smile at myself; because, I am a better version of me than I ever was. And, I have confidence that I am able to continue improving mentally, emotionally, and physically.
