We All Have Scars

Some old. Some new. Some just above the surface and some deep within. Most fade and few stay as a reminder of the pain. And some reopen…

I sit and drink my morning coffee. Watching droplets of rain trickle down my window pane. And I can’t help but notice a scar on my right arm. Having no recollection of how and when it got there and what caused it.

Sure- the scar on my arm will probably be gone in a day or two, without any evidence of its’ stay. But what about the scars that are not visible?

We can get scars through people, experiences and life in general. Weather from a breakup or losing a job or losing someone dear to us. Sure there isn’t physical evidence, but it’s there. So I guess my question to you is: do our emotional scars really ever heal? 

It’s difficult to determine, really. We might find that the scar is fully healed. But we may also find days where they reopen. Either by thinking of the person who has done its wrong or regretting a moment where we could have done something differently. Although not physically visible, our emotional scars are just as, if not more, sensitive and fragile.

The thing about emotional scars is that we never really know if they are gone or not. So how do we heal our emotional scars? We take the pain. And with time, they will fade. Never to be forgotten, but set as a reminder of what we have gone through.

Emotional scars can bring us pain. But maybe with time, we will learn to embrace them.

“Scars remind us where we’ve been. They don’t have to dictate where we’re going.”
