A scar is a permanent reminder of something that happened,
and that can be internal as well as external.
If you could eradicate the external scars, or at least reduce them, it would reduce
the internal ones too. If the research being done can help us understand
and reduce scarring, that’s something brilliant to aim for.
I also think it’s important not to be identified by your scars.
It isn’t easy, and perhaps because mine have been a part of my life from an
early age it’s made it slightly easier. But even though I know people look at me,
that would never make me hide away.
It’s important to look at the world face on.
