Daily Prompt: Scars

My scars have definitely made me stronger. They remind of what I lost and what I gained. They’re not visible scars. They’re not emotional scars. They are scars that I’ve put on myself. They’re the expectations I’ve set for myself. They’re scars from my own failures. They’re scars that remind me how far I still have to go. They’re scars that remind me how far I have already gotten. They’re scars that give me the strength to keep going. They’re scars. They hurt from time to time. They bring back all the terrible memories. They bring back all the wonderful people that stood by me as the scars healed. They’re scars. They’re my scars.
