    I had open heart surgery. I was only 3 years old and I had a septum dysfunction. My family and all my loved ones almost lost me forever. I almost died. What happened was my heart functioned like anyone else's. But when it came to pressure, my heart didn't pump hard enough to...

    It's On My Heart

    Not all scars are visible, some are deep inside, not showing where others may see, until they are in your heart.

    but you can't see it.

    it's always there, and every time I think it is healed, it gets ripped open again. physical scars are easy to deal with. emotional ones define who we are.

    I have scars on my arm from Self-Harming.

    I don't hate them. Yeah, I wish I had less, but I wouldn't trade them. In fact, I think they're pretty ways of reminding me that I overcame the pain. I fought the depression and I won. They remind me not to cut again and remind me that I have a bright future. 4 and a half...

    Scars

    We all have scars, inside and out. We have freckles from sun exposure, emotional trigger points, broken bones, and broken hearts. However our scars manifest, we need not feel ashamed but beautiful. Alexander Foss Tiny Buddha

    I have one in my arm

    and many small scars that I got because of a serious car accident. To be honest I'm happy I'm still alive from that, and I don't want to get rid of these scars because they remind me of this second chance in life

    Proud Of My Scar

    I decided, many years ago, that I'd make my wreck a cool thing. This was tricky since I was hit by a drunk driver and it wasn't my fault (except if you listened to all of my older Christian relatives-"What was she doing out so late?").After some years of people looking down on...

    I have a 4 inch scar on my right knee from

    when I was younger and competed in high jump. During an event, I went for my jump and missed, the bamboo pole hit my knee and snapped, while lodging in the side of my knee. over the years it has gotten smaller and lighter in skin tone.

    So, when I was about 4 years old,

    I went to preschool. We had this little playground thing and I was trying to get up to the top to slide and this kid was easing with a toy tractor on the slide. He rolled it up the slide and BAM! It hit me right where the middle of my glasses cover it up.

    for 2 years now and nobody has noticed. I'm happy about it so nobody will worry but I think to myself. Wow. Nobody cares to look or ask of I am okay. But anyway I cut because I am bullied a lot about my face and because I'm bisexual and because of my thighs (thunder thighs) but...

    I have scars! Plural.

    Several .... and all from my breast cancer. One is from my port and two are on my breasts from my mastectomies. But they are beautiful because they are evidence that I fought breast cancer and won! :) (Okay I didn't always feel this way but it is how I'm feeling today.)

    At 20 years old I made a bad decision.

    I stayed up all night and then in the morning decided it was a good idea to drive down state. I was seeking something, to fill a void in my life. Unfortunately, it wasn't what I needed or wanted. I drove home, but on the way there I lost track. I remember the flight to the...
