Scars and soul

My scars will be here forever, but I won’t let them affect me. 
They are a part of my beauty, my soul. 
Sometimes I resent them.
 But they remind me of the fear I have faced and overcome in the years I have lived. 
At times I wonder what life would be like, if my path had been different… 
But then I know I wouldn’t be who I am today. 
You can love me for my face, for my features, but that is not love at all. 
I’d rather you love me for my soul and the things I have done and will do in this life.
 A heart can be cold, but mine never is.
And I hope it never will be.

    Everything we experience, good or bad, does make us the people we are. You are showing your inner strength. You can win any battle!

    yes, the way I feel too. A mirror image of me here. Thank you! Good luck! Love, Susan
