Scars That Tell A Beautiful Story
You might be saying are you for real, the scars don’t tell a beautiful story at all, all they show is the pain I have been through, all the unfair things that have happened to me. They are a vivid reminder of the mistakes, abuse, trauma and things that I would do anything to forget. I hear you, and Trauma and Abuse are real and need to be dealt with in time in a safe environment. Maybe it is even something that you are ready to look at and want to have some counselling to help you work through it. But what if that pain and hurt, those scars and memories, could become a story of how you overcame adversity, trauma, abuse and mistakes and how you used it to grow and become a blessing to someone else. Sure, you would not go back and pick to do it again and even so, we cannot undo our past, but we can choose what we do moving forward. Will we live in bitterness and anger, hurt and resentment, or will we learn and discover how to grow, forgive, let go, move forward and blossom?
If you need help, please reach out to us at Inspired & Equipped and never put someone down for what has happened in the past, but also remember there is always HOPE for the future.
