I really hated gatherings and photo takings when I was young. It turned me into a socially awkward person and there was always this one big reason for this dread.
In fact, I spent my weekends cooping up at home, because I didn’t want to go out. Friends would be telling me what I missed out on during the weekends when school starts on Monday - and that would make me feel worse.

It’s easy to feel ugly and trap ourselves in a cycle of harmful thought - “I shouldn’t introduce myself,” “My skin is so horrible,” “It’ll never clear up!” That’s what I thought, until on my vacation I found...
