I do have very low self-esteem because of my acne. Usually, I do wear makeup. I don’t pile it on, but I always wear foundation, along with all the eye makeup. My self-esteem would, I’m sure, be much worse if I didn’t wear makeup, because I go to a school where almost everyone is rich and they walk around with their perfectly straightened hair, and perfectly made-up faces, in their perfect clothes. After I found out about this website, I’ve been trying to be more natural, the way God wants me to be. I’ve been pulling my hair up into a ponytail instead of trying to get my hair to look like one of the other girls, I’ve been trying to look more like one of God’s girls, one that he made perfect. And I’ve tried to wear less makeup, but I haven’t gotten too self-confident, because I think that I might get made fun of without it. I’ve also been wearing simple clothes. Not really dressing up. Some people would think that if you didn’t dress up, it may make you feel less confident. That’s not true! Because with my experience, I’m becoming more confident. I can hold my cross necklace and smile because I know that I am the way God wants me to be.

    1. You are so beautiful and I envy your lush hair, I have acne too and I used to be very ashamed of it, but I always remember that it does not matter to God what you look like, and that he loves me.

    2. You have beautiful eyes Alycea, and I so happy you’re becoming more confident because you will set an Godly example to other girls who felt the same as you did. God doesn’t make mistakes,and always remember The King designed you(=

    3. Hey! I used to have really bad acne, so i know how frustrating it can be. Don’t worry, that will clear up 🙂 You are beautiful just the way God made you! You’re eyes are gorgeous, by the way. Keep on looking to God; He loves you no matter what.

    4. I’m proud of you that you’re brave and proud enough to wear your cross necklace everywhere. 🙂 I just wanted to say that I’ve struggled with self esteem issues all my life so if you ever just need someone to listen, I’m here – I know sometimes it’s easier to talk to someone you’ll probably never meet because it provides a comfort of “not judging you” or whatever haha. Anyways, you’re absolutely gorgeous just the way God made you, and honestly I think your skin is perfect, it’s really pretty 🙂 don’t feel ashamed and hide it! Stay strong girl, God loves you.
