    I showed my boyfriend my scars,

    he's the first person besides myself that has seen them. He told me that since then he feels closer than ever to me and that he's proud of me. He told me even with them I'm beautiful and perfect in his eyes. Made me cry for some reason.

    Most of my scars are emotional,

    I used to hate what I went through.

    Bullying, more bullying.... hyperventilating all the time etc. and I've been bruised with words that hurt me. I consider those my scars but I'm proud of it now. I'm happy
