Scars and family. 

I have loads of scars, most all self inflicted injuries. But I don’t feel comfortable enough to wear a short sleeve top in front of my family. I wish I did sometimes. I have younger sisters and I’m worried what they would think. I’m worried it may give them ideas. I hardly wear short sleeves any more and if I do I wear a jumper over it. I wish I didn’t have to. Sometimes I see my scars as my battle wounds and other times I wish I didn’t have them. It’s very difficult. One day I hope they will have faded enough for me to wear short sleeves and not worry about them.

  1. I understand how you are feeling. You have to remind yourself that even though those scars are self-inflicted, they are nothing to be ashamed of. Pain comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some people self-harm, some take drugs or drink alcohol. But it is never something to beat yourself up about. Take your time, wear short sleeves when you feel that you are ready. You are important. Always remember that! Have a lovely Wednesday. 😀 ❤
