Question Is it weird? - March 9th 2014, 01:47 AM

Is It weird that I don't want the scars to go away anymore? Like I feel that they will always be there no matter what so why try to get them to go away? They are a part of my story, my past, of me.

I don't think this is weird at all! Everyone has a different view of their scars. Some people try and hide them or feel ashamed, but some people accept their scars and have moved on from them. A lot of them have the same reasoning as you do, they're a part of your story. You don't have to want them to go away.

I agree with Dez..and I feel the same way you do..

Waiting is a sign of true love and patience,anyone can say "I love you" But not everyone can wait and prove it's true.

Some say it's painful to wait for someone,Some say it's painful to forget someone,But the worst pain comes when you don't know whether to wait or forget.

I agree with what was said above. Everyone feels a certain way about their scars, everyone has their story and however you want to feel about them is definitely okay!

This isn't weird at all. I know there are people that have accepted their scars and have moved on from them. I know I am conflicted about my scars. There is a part of me that doesn't want them and then there is a part of me that likes having them and sees them as a part of my story. In the end the way you view your scars is up to you and there is nothing weird about it.

agreed with the said above Personally, I hate wearing short sleeves and stuff because They show and I'm extremely embarrassed by them. But when they are fading away in like a month or so.. I want to cut them all over again.. It's weird. I have seen people who don't even care about them... So it really depends on the person in general. I'm just stating my opinion on my scars

Feel free to PM/VM me anytime
