Don’t be afraid of the scars of your past. Embrace them. For these scars are what sculpted you into the person you are today. They play a vital role in the shaping of your true being!
We (myself included) too often look at these scars and become shameful. As if we are supposed to be perfect. So we cover these scars up and forget about them, ultimately forgetting where we came from and what we’ve been through. STOP!
Wear these scars as a badge of honor. You don’t need to flaunt them. But don’t be ashamed. Never be ashamed of who you are or where you came from.
What one SHOULD be afraid of is the open wounds of the past. You see, we are all on this journey called life. What paths we take or detour from is all based on the choices WE ourselves make. Not because he said or she did this, that or the other… it’s how we perceive said situation and choose to handle it. As we progress through this journey, we WILL get knocked around. We will fall down and dare I say we will come out with cuts and bruises. It’s the healing of these open wounds that create the scars of our past. That tell our story and prove to us how strong we are, how far we’ve come. How capable we are of overcoming the largest even the smallest obstacles in life. I’d be lying to you if I said some of these cuts won’t be deep and some superficial.
The point I’m getting at is, we need to heal these wounds no matter how deep they are. So we can learn and become stronger better beings. Wounds left unhealed are toxic. You can bandage, cover and hide for a little while. But eventually, these wounds will bleed out and show again. Even worse, the infection in the time of letting these wounds go, just create more toxicity in your life. Ultimately leading you toward death. I’m not talking in a physical level although I believe it could become… I mean more on a emotional level, spiritual level and on a mental level.
We have to find it in ourselves to make amends with what ever the source of these wounds may be no mater how much it might hurt. How difficult it may be. So that we can heal and create that scar. The scar to be proud of, to have learned from. Not an open wound that is killing us day by day… minute by minute… second by second…
Heal those open wounds and create those scars. Let the world know you are strong. Be proud and embrace who you are!
