How I Dealt With My Problem of Pimples

TEENAGE IS THE AGE WHEN CHILDREN BECOME HYPERSENSITIVE TOWARDS THEIR APPEARANCE, BEHAVIOR, FRIEND CIRCLE AND ALSO ABOUT OTHERS BEHAVIOR TOWARDS THEM. ALSO, TEENAGE PROBLEMS ARE THE MOST DIFFICULT TO SOLVE AND ARE VERY COMMON. GENERALLY, TEENAGERS HAVE TO DEAL WITH SMALL BUT COMPLICATED PROBLEMS THAT ARE A SOURCE OF PROBLEM FOR THEIR PARENTS AS WELL AS FOR THEM.

I, AS A TEENAGER ALSO DEAL WITH SIMILAR PROBLEMS. THE MOST HORRIFYING OF THEM IS MY PROBLEM OF PIMPLES. A FEW MONTHS BACK, HAVING MY FACE FULL OF PIMPLES WAS THE BIGGEST NIGHTMARE FOR ME. WHAT WILL BE THE REACTION OF MY CLASSMATES? HOW WILL I ATTEND TOMMORROWS PARTY? OH! I AM LOOKING TOO UGLY. NOW ADITI WILL LOOK BETTER THAN ME AND SO ON……… ALL THESE THOUGHTS KEPT POPPING UP IN MY MIND NOT ONLY WHEN I WAS AWAKE BUT ALSO IN MY DREAMS. I ALWAYS KEPT THINKING ABOUT VARIOUS ANTI-PIMPLE CREAMS AND MEDICINES TO MAKE MY SKIN GLOW AND LOOK JUST LIKE MY FAVOURITE ACTRESS’S.

WITH THE SUDDEN CHANGES IN MY THOUGHTS, CHANGES IN ATTITUDE WERE EASY TO SEE. I BECAME ENVIOUS OF OTHERS GLOWING SKIN AND ONCE A HAPPY-GO-LUCKY GIRL TURNED INTO A RESERVED ONE. THE CHANGE IN ME CREATED A PROBLEM FOR MY PARENTS AS WELL. THOUGH THEY WERE WELL AWARE OF THE REASON OF MY CHANGED BEHAVIOUR, THEY KEPT TELLING ME THAT THE MORE SENSITIVE I WOULD TRY TO BE, THE MORE MY PROBLEM WOULD HURT ME. AND THEY WERE ACTUALLY CORRECT. THE
MORE I TRIED TO CURE MY PIMPLES, THE MORE OF THEM GREETED ME NEXT MORNING.

I REALLY HAD BEEN TIRED OF HEARING COMMENTS AND GETTING UGLY LOOKS FROM OTHERS, AS IF THEY WERE NOT PIMPLES BUT SOMETHING FROM HELL ON MY FACE. THEN ONE DAY, WHILE I WAS BUISY THINKING ABOUT MY PIMPLES, I REMEMBERED THE LINES OF A FOMOUS SONG, “I HAVE A DREAM” BY ABBA GROUP, WHICH ARE AS FOLLOWS:

I HAVE A DREAM,
A SONG TO SING,
TO HELP ME THROUGH,
ANYTHING.
IF YOU SEE THE WONDER,
OF A FAIRY TAIL,
YOU CAN TAKE THE FUTURE,
EVEN IF YOU FAIL.
I BELIEVE IN ANGELS,
SOMETHING GOOD IN EVERYTHING I SEE,
I BELIEVE IN ANGELS,
WHEN I KNOW THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR ME.
I’LL CROSS THE STREAM,
I HAVE A DREAM……………….

I DON’T KNOW, WHAT SPIRIT OF INSPIRATION THE SONG BURRIED IN ME BUT THAT DAY ONWARDS I STARTED VEIWING MY LIFE THROUGH A DIFFERENT ANGLE. I TOOK A RESOLUTION THAT I WILL NEVER FEEL DEPPRESSED DUE TO SOME SPOTS ON MY FACE AND PAY ATTENTION TOWARDS MY STUDIES. FROM THE NEXT DAY I STARTED IGNORING THE COMMENTS AND THE UGLY LOOKS. WHENEVER THE THOUGHTS OF DEPPRESSION CROPPED UP IN MY MIND, I TRIED TO SWIPE THEM AWAY. ALL THE ANTI-ACNE CREAMS AND MEDICINES WENT INTO TRASH. THE GOOD PART OF THE WHOLE PROCESS WAS THAT, MY SENSITIVE MIND ALLOWED ME TO DO ATLEAST SOMETHING TO CURE MY PIMPLES AND I STARTED HAVING VARIOUS BRIGHT COLORED FRUITS AND DRINKING LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER.

SLOWLY, CHANGES STARTED TO BE COMMON NOT ONLY INSIDE ME BUT ALSO IN MY SURROUNDINGS. THE SPOTS ON MY FACE GRADUALLY DECREASED, MAYBE DUE TO MY POSITIVE ATTITUDE, THE COMMENTS SEIZED AND THE UGLY LOOKS WERE NO MORE IN SIGHT, MAY BE DUE TO MY IGNORANCE. MY CONFIDENCE STARTED INCREASING AND SO WERE MY MARKS. SOON I SAW MYSELF STANDING BOLDLY AMONGST THE TOP THREE STUDENTS OF MY CLASS IN THE RANK HOLDER’S BOARD.

THE CONCLUSION IS, WITH MY OWN WILL POWER, I SOUGHT A WAY OUT FROM MY MOST COMMON PROBLEM. A TEENAGER’S LIFE IS FULL OF PROBLEMS AND STRONG WILL POWER IS VERY NECESSARY FOR HIM OR HER TO CARRY ON IN LIFE. WE MUST ALWAYS LOVE THE WAY GOD HAS MADE US. ALSO, WHETHER THE PROBLEM IS EASY OR TOUGH OR OF ANY KIND, THE SOLUTION LIES BENEATH THE HEART OF THE HUMAN. AT THE END, WE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER THE SAYING OF A GREAT PHILOSPHER:

“LIFE IS NO STRAIGHT AND EASY CORRIDOR ALONG WHICH WE TRAVEL FREE AND UNHAMPERED, BUT A MAZE OF PASSAGES THROUGH WHICH WE MUST SEEK OUR WAY. IF LOST AND CONFUSED NOW AND AGAIN, WE’LL BE CHOKED IN A BLIND ALLEY.”

THANK YOU
