Things We Do That Prevent Us From Being Happy
What a mouthful that title is, huh? But it's true - there are many common mistakes those of us who have acne tend to make, which prevent us from being happy, from truly enjoying and thriving in life. Hopefully by bringing these common mistakes to light, we can all begin to work on them in our own lives, and work toward being happier and healthier versions of ourselves.
What many of us acne sufferers fail to realize is that there are choices that we make every day, some of which seem completely unrelated to our health and happiness, that dramatically impact the way we feel mentally and physically. And oftentimes, this is fueled by our skin issues.
1. We believe we are unworthy of happiness and love
Brene Brown once said that the one thing that keeps us out of connection is the fear that we’re not worthy of connection - that's it. The one thing that stands between you and happiness - is you, and your belief that you don't deserve it.
If you want to be able to move past the fear, judgement, and uncertainty of being around people when you have acne, and move into a healthier and happier life, then you have to give yourself permission first. You have to decide that you’re worthy. And nobody can give you your own self-worth, you need that to come from within.
2. We avoid forming relationships with new people, and let old relationships die down.
