I've had mild acne too. That made me start compulsively checking my reflection in mirrors, windows ha anything. Also hate the fishing for compliments thing as well. I rarely mention it but I do sometimes slip up (I have on here!). Good luck with yours too, it sounds like you've had a tough time with it.I have suffered with this all my life, as well as my sister and younger brother. Growing up i always needed to look good and was excessive about it. Then i got into high school and i was very skinny. I played baseball and i saw a picture of myself once and cried. I started lifting weights and it has become an obsession. I hated my body, and still do. Everyone says i am extremly athletic and good looking, but honest to goodness i do not see it. People think i am fishing for compliments so i never talk about it. But i also have had mild acne througout my life and i cant even look myself in the mirror and not be disgusted. 2 years ago when i hit rock bottom i would cry everytime i looked in the mirror. Good luck with yours, just remember that we are our own worst critics.
