Our friend and sometime contributor Alva has a post today that’s worth reading. Actually, everything at Alva’s Almanac is worth reading, but this one deserves special attention. I like this part:
4. Scars are symbols of growth.
Never be ashamed of your scars. Scars are evidence that you survived and grew. Whether physical or emotional, scars were wounds once, born in times of difficulty. They show how far you’ve come. They are a rite of passage, so do not allow them to hold you hostage. You cannot make them disappear, but you can look at them differently and come to love them for what they taught you.
The other four are equally good.
