Dear Anybody,

I’m a 14 year old girl and I feel ugly. I struggle with acne, eczema, dermatitis and it just makes me feel so horrible. I look around and just see what everyone deems as ‘perfect’; I can’t help but think I’m not.

I’m slowly trying to overcome my insecurities.

I just wanted to say to anyone reading, whether you’re insecure or confident, acne or no acne, perfect or imperfect, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. And if you are like me, and you do feel like you’re ugly, just remember three important things:

1) You are beautiful

2) Society is pretty messed up, the image of ‘perfection’ distorted, we’re not here to be Barbie dolls, we’re here to be ourselves.

3) And following on from the previous point, plastic melts.
