Scars

“The thing is, we all have imperfections and scars — both physical and emotional; either visible or easily hidden — and for better or worse, they can often be reminders of our past. Sometimes, they’re a reminder of what needed to be excised; other times, they represent healing or a major life change. Often, our scars can’t be seen at all, and sometimes those affect us and those we love the most. Regardless of what came before, however, scar tissue represents a healing process, and that they’re often Photoshopped is tragic, because the places we’ve put ourselves back together are often the most textured and beautiful of all.”
