    “Take your messed up face somewhere else!” this stranger yelled before they slammed their door on me. This is actually the harshest experience I’ve ever had that I can remember involving my port wine stain birthmark on my cheek. Not so bad, right? I think the reason I was particularly sensitive in this instance was because I was canvassing for a non profit I really put my heart into for over a year. So there were other completely non related reasons I was hurt over this person’s reaction anyways. You could say the reasons this instance affected me had nothing to do with anything only skin deep.
