We all have visible and invisible scars. Those that are visible might be the ones that come with age, accidents, self-inflicted, or those surgeries that saved our lives. Our emotional scars are too, part of who we are. We should embrace them all.
As I look in the mirror I see the laugh-lines and sad lines that can be read as braille if you were to close your eyes and feel my face, and which I no longer feel like fighting. They are my hard-earned wrinkles. They show the battles I’ve fought. As for my emotional scars, they have made me stronger and more vulnerable at the same time, and those I welcome too.
Wear your scars as badges of honor. Every single one has made you who you are; unique.
