it's a big step. emotions can overwhelm us sometimes. plus, crying can be cathartic. let the years flow.
Thank you everyone xxx
Thanks pandas x
Thank you dear lovely pandas <3
I don't want to wear makeup to the plane, it will be over 30h of travelling! But insecure about my acne... I don't know what to do :(
Have a good trip. I never notice my friends spots ... just my own :) whatever you decide remember your acne looks 10 times worse to you than to anyone else.
Thank you Sandra. I hope you're right. I wish I just had few 'normal' spots as you do as teenager, but I'm 20 already and mine is proper acne, not just few spots :( Thanks Reba.
You have a few long flights ahead of you. I'd say keeping your skin hydrated is the most important! I struggled with acne for a really long time - I've sort of stopped noticing it now as it's mostly out of my control. You'll soon forget you aren't
Wearing makeup when the travelling and fun begins! I also watched your latest video and we have the exact same eye mask, how weird is that! xxx
plus side: you're 20 and you & acne are about to embark on a great adventure.
Thank you Alice, very lovely comment. You're right. I don't want to wear makeup, so I shouldn't! Ha, that's a nice coincidence :)
Ha ha thanks Love! Thanks for the hugs everyone xxx
Good luck Claire, I really don't think anyone will care if you wear make-up on the plane or not, your comfort comes first. People will be too busy being jet-lagged and cranky! Plus it's such a long flight... Xxx
Yes, I agree. Ditch the makeup. Just stay focused on being comfortable during your travels. Like Sandra said, your acne looks a million times worse to you than to other people. Most people are too concerned about themselves to notice something like..
...that on other people. You are beautiful just the way you are! <3
You're right Binky and Manda. Thank you so much for always being there for me, much love on your way <3
And thanks Silke for the hug x
How many days left now until you leave?
I'll leave on tuesday! Thanks pandas x
It's almost time! I am so so excited for you!!
It is, eek! Thank you my sweetest Manda xxx
Yay Claire! A whole new world is opening up! xx
Thank you so much all my lovely dear caring pandas <3 Your comments really made me smile and happy. Much love to all of you xxx
but then decided to take it home with me. Why would I leave it, get your own cakes! I also got this feeling, that what if my neighbour was dead, when they carried him into the ambulance, and that's why they didn't hurry?
Couldn't get rid of the feeling, which lead to anxiety. Later got a text from mum saying he had a heart attack but should be fine now. What a relief!
Good for you. Enjoy your cake!
Aw, I wouldn't be upset about them not eating your cake. More cake for you is ALWAYS a good thing. =) What kind was it?
Thank you pandas <3 It was carrot cake Manda!
Mmm...one of my favorites & I haven't had a piece in probably over a decade! Maybe I should make one!
It is your LAST day of work today. You are finally quitting the work which makes you very unhappy. You are finally taking the first step to better life, to living your dreams. You have done SO WELL, and will be doing in the future too.
Be freaking proud of yourself for this. So what if you have puffy eyes from crying and bad sleep. So what if you have headache and feel bit unstable. It is your day! All this, that somehow seems so much to you now, is just one last challenge.
You have gone through much worse, my dear friend. You can get through this too. Just keep going.
You took the words right out of my mouth ;-)
Change is scary. You have done the right thing and things will be better now.
Good pep talk, my friend. I know you've got this! xx
Thank you so so much all you beloved pandas <3 Your support means a lot x
3 ambulances, wow that's a lot!!
It is indeed Binky :S My mom and I were scared that something happened to the little kids that also live in this house but apparently it was the old man who lives alone between the family and us. Of course I also hope that he is ok, but somehow it's
always much more heartbreaking if it's a small kid. (This is a row hourse of 3 apartments) Thanks for the hugs
Oh, it wasn't the old man, I just saw him going to work :S So it's been one of the parents of the kids :(
Thanks Manda x
