When I stop and think about it, the inner and invisible scars we all have are the ones that often hurt the most. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t have some form of a physical scar. It is almost impossible surviving your childhood without any physical scars. For some of us physical scars are a reminder of a horrific event in our life. For others the physical scars are memories of years of abuse. Often times our inner scars come from ourselves. At least for me I can say I have spent many years beating myself up, criticizing myself, putting labels on myself, holding myself to higher standards that are impossible to reach and putting blame on myself that doesn’t belong to me. Everyone has a unique relationship with their own scars invisible and seen. Healing looks different for everyone and we should learn to never compare our healing journey with anyone else’s. Once we learn how to embrace all our scars we can heal. God does not see us as broken or wounded but rather He sees us as beautiful and mended despite our scars.
