i have been struggling with self harm for over 10 years now and i have so many scars from my wrists to my shoulders and there are a good handful that are some pretty decent sized keloid scars. im black so im more likely to get them. honestly it's highly embarrassing for me, i am always covered up but dont like people hugging me or rubbing their arm up my clothed arm because they'll be able to feel the scars through my clothes.

i dont wear too tight shirts either cuz they'll show raised up even under my long sleeve shirts. it's very hard for me to deal with honestly. i try not to let my scars define me but it's hard when we live in a society that presents one image of acceptable beauty and if we have any flaws then theres something wrong with us or we aren't beautiful.
