Scars tell a story.All the scars you have be it physical scars or mental scars/emotional scars.Accepting them is the way to go,you heal by accepting those scars,you move on by accepting them.They always make sure that they remind you of what you have been through,by so doing you better yourself to an extend that whenever you think or look at them you embrace them.
The two types of scars that l would like to focus on are;
These are scars we have on our bodies.Some of these scars are because of our carelessness.l have this scar which l had when l was 15 years old.I burnt myself with cooking oil and all the confidence l had with my legs vanished.l started wearing trousers all the time until a day came when l said to myself enough.I asked myself until when?l started wearing skirts and dresses until l developed the confidence l had before l burnt my leg.The other physical scars are those which a person get from toxic relationships.We have a lot of women who are living with abusive men because of kids or because the woman love the man a lot but is it worth it?A lot of women will only realise they are in toxic relationships when its too late.
Almost everyone has an emotional scar somewhere somehow.We all have been through some rough phases in life where we question God,where we question our faith.lmagine trying one thing for 4 years and always getting bthe same result.A lot of men and women are going through some emotional pain not only from romantic relationships but from fake friends,broken families/extended families, unloyal business partners,the list goes on and on.The bible tells us to control our tongue.The tongue has the power to destroy someone.The words that come out of our mouths maybe very hard for the person next to us to swallow.Some of you are still holding on to the negative things you were told while you were a child.Some of the words were said in a fit of rage yet they still affect is even now.
Create a better lining
Everything you have been through or are going through doesnt make your life ugly.You are not broken beyond repair.Rather pick yourself up, dust yourself off and focus on who you want to become and who you have always wanted to become.You can wear your scars proudly as a badge of honor so that one day you will proudly say,”look at what l have been through,it has made me who lam today and l can overcome anything life throws at me.”Lets paint our broken pieces with gold and make life beautiful.Turn something ugly into something beautiful.Embrace the scars.Turn your pain,hurt, betrayal into your super power.
