Default What do you think about your scars?

I kind of like mine, but at the same time I hate them. I hate how they were self inflicted because I couldn't handle my emotions and just needed an escape but I like them because they remind me of what ie been through. They kind of give me hope

I used to be very very self concious about them all, to the point where I'd do anything to hide them and everything. But, after awhile I just accepted that they're just apart of my body and that's it. I mean, it took me a hell of a long time to finally actually fully accept that I had scars but, I'm not ashamed of them. I like to think of them sometimes as reminders that shit isn't so bad, I did what I did but I came through to the other side. It's also quite relaxing, for me personally anyway, when I look at them. I don't hate that they're there.

the ones on my arms don't bother me because i can literally only see them in a certain light and at a certain angle and most of them you can't even see anymore but the ones on my legs are deep as hell and apart from the ones that are obviously visible now (fresh cuts or w/e) they're extremely noticeable and they look disgusting so i guess i hate them?? and the recent ones make me paranoid wearing skirts and stuff because they're so visible and stuff

Luckily my scars were from a thin sharp blade and the cuts were very fine, so they healed without much scarring. The idea of having the scars scared the hell out of me after I did it.
It's like a permanent reminder of how broken you are. I wouldn't be able to live with them.

I am embarrassed by mine, I don't cover them up any more because this is me and people need to accept that. I just wish I hadn't of damaged my body so badly and hope it doesn't impact on my future career. They show me what i've overcome in my life so i don't hate them anymore

I have them all up and down my arms and everyone in my school (especially the middle schoolers, its 6-12) looks at them. It's very depressing for me :/

Also where I live it is too hot in the summer months to cover them so I don't

My scars are there, and they'll most likely be there for a while, so I've just come to accept it. I have and still do use products to get them to be less noticeable, but that's because I just don't like answering questions about them. I use to hate them and be obsessive over getting them to fade but now it's just like whatever, it is what it is.

I love mine. As I've said many a time I think they're the most beautiful part of my body. Saying that however I feel uncomfortable as fuck if other people see them. I'm happy with them being on my body (which they probably will be for a long time to come seeing as my scars don't seem to fade), just very self conscious of other people seeing them.

I thought I knew how I felt about them until today: which was the first time i wore a two piece bathing suit out in public. Maybe it was because the full "wrath" of my damage was exposed but i felt so naked. I've been able to wear shorts to school and not feel ashamed or anything but today was different. It was like i was looking at them for the first time. I felt scared. I forced myself not to panic. I felt like everyone would think I was crazy. Come to think of it; the last time I wore shorts my dad saw my scars and asked me flat out if i was crazy. It didn't affect me then, but maybe seeing my body through his eyes rattled me a bit. I feel embarrassed all over again. How do you stop? How do you love yourself even though you did those acts out of hate? I don't want to be defined by them.

For me, I hate them 100%. There's no love because of what I've been through or anything. It's just 100% pure hate for them.

I have some scars on my upper arms. I cut where short sleeve shirt sleeves cover them up. I don't cut anymore, so the scars are there, no more are going to be there.
I kinda like my scars, but my mom doesn't. When she and my dad found out they began finding ways to remove scars.
So yeah. :p I kinda do like them, but they might be gone soon.

My scars are all over my thighs and well.. I find them beautiful. They are not something I enjoy (even the thought of) showing public though.

Don't like them. I wish I could think of them as a badge of honor or as a reminder that I have recovered like some people do, but no matter how hard I try I can't get into that mindset.
I just don't like them.

It's an ugly reminder of how I've failed myself in the past. I hate them.

I hate them so much. Everytime I look at them, the feelings of how weak I was and my past flood back into my head. People notice them at clubs and parties and they stare at them, and others make jokes about it, presuming it's my cat because I apparently clearly don't look like the kind of person that would self-injure. I wish they would just go. I've tried using moisturisers and bio-oil but of course, the only remedy is time, resulting in a semi-permanent mark on my skin.

Well... I don't really think about them. I used to all the time, even putting makeup over them to hide them (which was ridiculous, since I only cut my thighs and don't wear shorts)... I used to be embarrassed. But now, I don't care.
