    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...

    but anyway, yes i have a scar. I was two years old when my mother dropped me and my older brother off at my grandmothers house before she went to work. Before she brought us over, she warned my aunt who would be going over my grandmothers house too, not to bring her rottweiler...

    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.

    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 was in the hospital

    for 6 months and had 3 surgeries, when I was pregnant with my second child. It all started one afternoon, with an ache on my left side. I stretched, shoved pillows all around, but nothing helped. It soon became pain and fever, and shortly after projectile vomiting. My guy...

    I've got 2 scars, to be precise,

    one at the back of my head, when I was young (3 or 4) I was messing around a swivel chair, like children of that age normally do, and decided to lean back on it, before discovering this thing called physics and going whack on the freezer behind me. The second being from a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    When I was two years old,

    my family saw a lump along my right collarbone. Within a few months, this lump "grew" clear across my chest. My parents feared an aggressive cancer. Surgery was scheduled and the lump was removed. It was a cyst within a cyst. Doctors weren't certain of the cause, but did have me...

    I have three scars in total.

    One was because I was bit by a dog. Another one was because I was using an apple cutter and accidentally cut my thumb. The last one was because I was holding a glass of water and it slipped out my hands, dropped to the floor and a piece of glass cut my foot. If I have others...

    Two actually. though one cannot be seen.

    The "invisible" scar is not one upon my heart or soul, though those do exist to be sure. No, in deference to the spirit of this group, I speak only of the physical variety. In this case a scar so minute that it cannot be seen by the naked eye. Ironic in that it resides upon...

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