The world is full of problems – swine flu, ebola outbreak, civil wars , naxalism, militancy etc. But you ask any teenager what is the biggest problem affecting his life and I am sure majority of them would answer – pimples.
Yes , you are right all of us , whether we are adults or teenagers have gone through the pains of having pimples on our face.It is one of the most irritating things to happen to anybody. Not only does it bring the physical pain but has various social & psychological affects on our minds.This is irrespective of how severe the pimples are.
Psychological Affect : Pimples mostly affect us when we are in the age group where appearing good is the most important thing for us. when we are developing our personalities.This is the time when peer pressure is too high and acceptance or getting ridiculed in a group mostly depends on your appearance.
There is loss of confidence in a person having pimples , he may struggle to have eye contact to speak to someone.
Persons suffering from it are afraid to venture confidently in public and social gatherings.
Girls can disguise their pimples by using heavy makeup but boys don’t have such option since they cannot even shave properly due to the pimples.
People having pimples are sitting ducks as far as getting taunts from peers are concerned. They seldom have any replies for such taunts. This further dents their self confidence and image.
Boys find it difficult to approach any girl and same applies for girls too. This affects making new bonds with someone whom they admire. The fear of getting rejected or ridiculed adversely affects their minds. I am not sure but their should be some study to conclude if pimples can even lead a person into depression ?.
There might be situations when a person needs to be presentable in office for a client meeting or has to appear for an interview.In cases like these it may severely affect his self confidence and he might not be able to give his best shot.
