Life scars – a symbol of strength. Never be ashamed of the scars left by life. The scar meant that the pain was gone and the wound is healed. It means you have overcome the pain, learned the lesson, become stronger and improved.
The scar is a tattoo of triumph. Do not become hostage to your scars. Don’t let them make you live in fear. You cannot force scars to disappear, but you can change how you look at them. You can treat your scars as a sign of strength.
Jalal al-Din Rumi once said, “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” There is nothing fairer than these words. Out of suffering arose the strongest souls, the most influential people in this great world have scars.
