    I have a scar between my breasts

    where a piece of hot slag went into my leathers, shirt, and stuck in my bra. I have many others but that's the first one in my head when I think scar.

    I have scars whether they be emotional scars

    or physical. Every scar I have tells a story. I hate my physical scars they make me feel less beautiful. But every scar I have tells a story of heartbreak and sorrow. I am ashamed of some of my scars but I look at them now and am proud because I'm stronger now. Even my...

    Actually I have many.

    1 on my left cheek. 1 on my right wrist. Right knee and right shin. All of them have a story and are part of me and my experiences.

    When I was small child,

    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...

    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

    It's just above my right eyebrow.

    When I was 5 I tripped at school and gashed my head on the sharp corner of a table. I made such a huge, screaming, crying fuss in A&E that they decided not to stich it up but just put butterfly plasters on it. It's a much bigger scar because of that.

    many of them. some accidental,

    some (many) deliberate. old and new....careless stupidity caused or to deflect pain. a few from necessity...a large one on my spine from surgery. even more scars are inside. stupid actions ...careless and unthinking. shattered heart and soul.

    Scars are reminders of your life- A timeline- A

    map. I love reading everyone's stories. Many of our scars come with pain and tears--- but when you get to share them with others, it almost becomes a life lesson for everyone. It's weird how a simple imperfection that could've happened years ago, holds such a strong memory.

    Basically my roommate decided it would be a good idea to put her just used blazing hot hair straightener on my desk chair while I was laying on my bed. so context is that I've had about 4 hours of sleep and just woke up from a 10 minute power nap and was about to continue to do...

    I have quite a few scars from,

    shall we say, undesirable experiences. But I have a few medical scars as well. Scars are good though, it shows us we've come out of a battle. x

    I have been cutting myself

    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.)

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

    Somewhere. It's isn't on my wrist.

    It isn't on my knee. Nowhere on conflicted skin, curled and ugly, shifting and raised with grooves fitted from a dirty razor. Some scars cannot be seen. Yet those scars unseen, receive the same treatment. We hide them. Physical scars are hidden by the sleeve. Mine are held by a...

    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...

    because it shows that I have fought something and conquered it. For me all of my scars are from surgeries. I have 5 scars all made in the same month. The biggest scar is on my back from scoliosis surgery. I thought that would be my only scar. Well, I had complications and I...

    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...

    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...
