Eczema + Relationships ❤️💔 On hols with a bf in 2018 vs on hols with a bf in 2020. Spot the difference? Skin doesn’t lie. Your body is telling you all you need to know. We talk about medication, products and cures to chronic illnesses, both mental and physical. But we don’t talk about the impact of relationships and ‘real life’ on our health. Pay attention to how people in your life are affecting your health. In 2018 I was in the wrong relationship, I was dating a compulsive liar, he lied about EVERYTHING. Even when there was no reason to lie. A person who told me he was with me because no one else would ever put up with me, like I should be grateful for being in the presence of somebody willing to deal with me as a human being. How degrading and low. We finally sold our house a few weeks ago, and just as it was all finally ending he wrote to my employer asking they investigate me for ‘theft’ 🤔🥴😂. It was like a last ditch attempt to hurt me and my career. The last attempt of a narcissist to control and degrade another human being. Looking back - an experience I am grateful for and a huge life lesson. Human behaviour is so interesting. It’s 2020, and I am in a new relationship where I can be unapologetically myself and I am loved for it. In the presence of this person I am calm, tranquil, smiley, excited. It’s really that simple. Pay attention to how your body reacts to another person’s presence. We choose people based on a checklist of completely irrelevant factors that do not relate to happiness of any kind. We settle based on our own insecurities and it’s sad. The skin is our largest organ, it’s our vessel, protector, saviour. If we spent as much time working on the ‘real’ version of ourselves as we do perfecting the ‘social media’ version of ourselves, the ‘work’ version of ourselves, the ‘perfect mother’, ‘perfect sister’, ‘perfect girlfriend’, ‘perfect whatever’ version of ourselves, we would be a lot happier. Anyone can paint whatever picture of you they want. We can not control others thoughts and actions but we can control our reaction it them. Let it go. The best revenge is a life lived well ❤️❤️

I was the same but not as extreme but my scalp was so bad from the stress. Also eyes don’t lie. In your second picture you can see you’re genuinely happy. Go you ✨🙌🏻💕

Bless you - it’s raw and real - living with skin conditions are a daily challenge, finally referred to a skin expert (the phenomenal Dr Cooper ) after 39 years of pure suffering was a revaluation in my life - I remember sitting in the waiting room thinking these are my people !! He helped me manage my condition and although it’s still there it has much less impact on my daily life ! So I wish you continued healthy skin and congratulations on a continuing healthy relationship 💗 xx

This is exactly what I needed to read this morning. Just coming out from a toxic relationship is hard as all I want to do is go back but seeing posts like this makes me try and realise my own self worth ❤️

Sending you love and healing. I left a narcissist and lost nearly 2 stone, IBS symptoms eased, huge inflamed stomach gone, skin cleared up. It’s so truer
