Living with scars...

“Wounds heal. Scars fade.

Awful memories can be overwritten with better ones if given the chance. 
The little imperfections of our psyches become overshadowed by the people whose love we cherish because they cherish us despite our faults; physical, emotional, spiritual, or otherwise. This thing we call the human condition with all its bittersweet blind corners and senseless humor evolves from within ourselves and not because of some pre-ordained reverie we desire to cast in the constellations.
All in all it is what makes life worth living.”
~ August Clearwing

“Scars are not injuries, Tanner Sack.
A scar is a healing.
After injury, a scar is what makes you whole.”
 ~China Miéville

“Some people see scars, and it is wounding they remember. 
To me they are proof of the fact that there is healing.”
~ Linda Hogan

“Sometimes it's the scars that remind you that you survived. 
Sometimes the scars tell you that you have healed.”
~ Asley D Wallis

“Scars are but evidence of life," Coquette said.
"Evidence of choices to be learned from...
evidence of wounds...
wounds inflicted of mistakes...
wounds we choose to allow the healing of. 
We likewise choose to see them, that we may not make the same mistakes again.”
~ Marcia Lynn McClure

“Scars show us where we have been, they do not dictate where we are going.”
~ David Rossi
