“People have scars, in all sorts of unexpected places… like secret roadmaps of their personal histories, diagrams of all their old wounds. Most of our wounds heal, leaving nothing behind but a scar. But some of them don’t. Some wounds we carry with us for some time. And though the cut’s long gone, the pain still lingers.” - Grey’s Anatomy
… the scar continues to remind us of a past best forgotten, and the pain.. the pain will linger for as long as one allows it to.
Personally, the physical scars are not that important to me. It’s usually the emotional ones that are hard to ignore. Like hurt from people you trust and love and who you expect would hold you up and respect your life’s decision – these and more. They will continue to remind me that there is only the Lord who will remain faithful to me in all His promises.
