I wanted to wear a shirt and shorts at the beach, wanted to cover the marks of a skin condition I used to have. Mom said they didn't even show much, but I felt uncomfortable. Nearby a woman stood up in her bikini, she had a long vertical scar right in the middle of her chest, she was happy, she didn't hesitate, she was enjoying her time. I felt ridiculous worrying about stuff like that, how many persons wish to be right at the beach? how many persons wish they could tell the story of their scars? Scars aren't a bad thing, something to cover up. Scars show you survived whatever you went through.
