I hate scars! I was a little clumsy as a kid, and I have the scars to prove it. I remember one time I tripped on a rock while running, and I had to get six stitches. The next day in school all my friends kept asking me what happened. I ended up just trying to cover it up because it was weird looking and ugly.
I only told that story because I ran across a great quote last night.
“Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.” – Unknown
We all have our scars, both physical and emotional scars. Whether they’re stitches or a bad break up, scars are scars. Although our wounds may take time to heal and even scar; the beauty in our scars is that they remind us of our strength.
