Years Ago

My uncle who was married into the family, had a nephew who could have benefited from an acne scar removal product had it been as available 19 years ago as it is today.

I remember him well because his scars were very bad and I often wondered how much it affected his social life. I know I remember one of my cousins whispering behind his back about his acne problem and how gross it looked, so I can only imagine how hurtful strangers were to him.

I know I'm thankful I don't have acne scars, even though I can admit to the occasional crazy pimple breakout, thanks to work. I just hope for those who are suffering through those teenage and even adult hormone scars today, that you'll keep your head high no matter how bad the situation seems.
