I'm truly sorry to hear about the distress you've experienced due to eyelash pulling. It's incredibly tough to carry such a burden for so long, and it's understandable how this could have impacted your life and self-perception.

Your feelings are valid, and it's important to acknowledge the impact it has had on your self-esteem and experiences. It's never easy to carry a habit that affects self-image and relationships.
