Scars As Trophies

Hi my favorite readers!
Here is another excerpt from my upcoming book…
Obviously, scars can be the result of quite a few things. This article talks about the physical appearance of scars upon one’s body. These may have occurred due to surgeries, medical procedures, life’s experiences, or other such occurrences.

It has recently come to my attention that scars are considered yet another area of imperfection, according to the cosmetic industry. This industry has gone way too far this time, in my opinion. We are being led to believe that scars are something to be ashamed of. Scars are being promoted as taking away from our natural beauty, according to this powerful industry.

Recently, there have been television commercials about products capable of “hiding” or “eliminating” scars. Then, the ad shows a person explaining the dramatic effects that this 1/4-1/2” scar has upon them. The totally debilitating scar is the main concern of one’s existence, according to this ad. Spare me and cry me a river. Get real.

Or, go to the store and peruse the shelves filled with products claiming cosmetic improvements to one’s appearance. Again, spare me. It’s bad enough that the cosmetic field has us convinced that our natural state is improper, but to try to convince us that scars are a sign of deficiency? Come on….And to think that some people will be convinced of this. 🙁

Scars are a sign that one has encountered a battle and lived to talk about it. My total knee replacement scar is about 10” long. My philosophy? Add it to the collection. The outside of my thigh has another 10” scar that is 30 years old. It’s a beaut. 🙂

Scars are not something to be ashamed of, or hidden from view. Weather permitting, I wear shorts and my scars show. If someone doesn’t like seeing them, they don’t have to look.

Moral of story: Be proud of your scars and treat them like a trophy. Show them off when you can. Talk about them in a comfortable manner with others. Share the experience that they are a result of. Not everyone can regale your tales like you can. 🙂

Be free to say to whoever will listen… “Want to see my scar?” Do it with enthusiasm and proudness. Then, show it off while gazing fondly at it. (You may get some strange looks when you do this, though. 🙂 )

Some scars are a sign of stupidity or error on one’s part. An example of this is using power tools incorrectly, or improper use of fireworks. Now, I would think those scars would need a little more story embellishment. Some scars are a result of surgery or sports event participation and are professionally obtained signs of conquer. These life signs are to be proudly shown!

Scars are a sign of survival. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The only alternative to survival is death. You choose.

End of my “soap opera speech” for the day. 🙂
