As Haruki Murakami said when people open their hearts, they get better.

Rightly said, joy, when shared, unravels and pain, when shared dwindles.

However, sometimes healing isn’t an option. Healing changes us in such a way that we can never be the same again. Every wound we go through takes a toll on us, whether body or soul.

Time doesn’t heal. It merely diminishes, eventually leaving a scar. Scars have the power to remind us that the past actually happened. The past was real. Scars signify the hurdles we’ve been through. No medicine can erase the scars that stains our souls from the wounds we’ve been through.

These scars are an opening into the most beautiful part of our souls.

Some people see scars,


Wounds, they remember.

To all of us,

It should be proof of the fact,

That there is healing.

Scars aren’t ugly. Scars are to be seen as a sign of beauty. Scars do not mark the dead or the dying. A scar means, you survived.

Scars are tattoos with better stories.
