We all have scars…

We all have scars — whether physical or emotional. Our first reaction is often to hide them — to be ashamed — to attach negative feeling to them or do our best to “fix” our perceived flaws.

I recently came across this quote and thought it was worth sharing. 

“My scars remind me that I did indeed survive my deepest wounds. That in itself is an accomplishment. And they bring to mind something else, too. They remind me that the damage life has inflicted on me has, in many places, left me stronger and more resilient. What hurt me in the past has actually made me better equipped to face the present.”

Your reflection on our human nature is spot on. We do have a tendency to want to fix everything. But instead, we should find the beauty in our "flaws"- and in fact not view them as flaws, but rather as part of our unique nature.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and this quote- it is very powerful and worth sharing!

Wishing you well on your healing journey.
