I’m new here I hope I can help

I have a mild visible difference due to a rare syndrome that affects my facial structure as well as causing other health problems. I was bullied a lot at school and still receive nasty comments from time to time. I try to be confident and not let other people affect my confidence or mental health. I want to be more active in the visible difference community because I think I can help people from my life experience. If anyone needs advise and support please let me know.

Thank you for this lovely honest post. I believe that confidence is key to believing in yourself & if you can help someone to achieve that feeling then it is a fantastic way to boost someone’s self esteem.

I definitely find sharing experiences with others who can relate makes a big difference. On bad days I take strength from the courage of others. Makes me more determined to face the world and be positive.

Sharing is most definitely a sign of caring & actually defines us as a group I think😊
