This is a very different post today, I want to talk about scars.....whether they be from surgery, an accident, if you were just born with them or they were through how you were feeling.
I have gone through my whole life, lucky enough, not to have to go into hospital for any reason until recently and since my operation (which was beneficial to my life) I keep inspecting my scars. Something that is totally different about your body that you didn't technically want, but will always be there, and most of the time you had no choice over. I can't help but look at them each day and wonder how long they will be there for, will they fade? Will they be there forever? Would people see them and wonder what they are?
I am lucky that my scars are in places that not many people will see unless I am in bikini on the beach, but the more I look at them the more I feel they tell a story.
I have read many things about people trying to reduce the appearance of their scars which is totally understandable when they affect people and their confidence but I truly believe, whether the story behind them, good or bad, no one should be ashamed of their scars. scars can be a sign of strength (or a point of weakness), scars are a sign of survival and most importantly scars remind you that life is very important.
I want to ask you, my readers, if you have any scars and your feelings on them, I would be very interested to know your thoughts, I want to also say I totally understand that some people have very big scars that could effect them in a massive way, this is not a post to upset anyone but a place to share and talk about them, no one should be ashamed of their scars, no matter what the story behind them is.
