I came across this post 🙂

What do you answer when people ask you what your scars are from? I came across this list here, I was laughing through it. Don’t worry about it. Because of me, they now have a warning label… “Oh, these?” *embarrassed face* “I know they look horrible, but the sex was INCREDIBLE!” …. The voices told me to do it…. I was walking into town and the aliens came down and started to battle with me…..

How do you respond when people ask you about your scars?

  1. Most of my scars have faded. But when I was younger, I had a couple on my arm from cutting. I’d make up stories because I was embarrassed by what I thought was my weakness. Now that I’m older, I share my weaknesses more in hopes that my stories might help others see they’re not alone. Even though my scars are not as visible these days, I wear them proudly because they are a reminder that I’m a survivor.

    1. Loved this! Thanks for sharing it…
      I can relate to the absent mindedness. When I was in school we were once told a story about a ‘great man’ who was so lost in his intellectual thoughts that he bumped into a lamp-post and apologised to the lamp-post. I couldn’t see what was so major about that. For I’d do that all the time. Apologise to inanimate objects because I didn’t realise that what I’d bumped into when thinking wasn’t a person.

  2. People ask crazy things sometimes – no inhibitions. I have a chicken pox scar in the middle of my forehead – it doesn’t seem that big now and it’s faded … when I had chicken pox as a kid, my mom said “don’t pick that chicken pox scab – you’ll have a scar in the middle of your forehead your entire life” … I didn’t pick it, it fell off and she said “but I told you ….”

    1. Annoying that you still have the scar then…. people have asked me about the scars I have from acne, and I’m like I didn’t pick them. I don’t pick them at all. They leave scars anyways. It can be funny. The only people who it’s okay for them to ask is kids – who are innocent – and the elderly.

      1. I SO agree with you Eliza – people have no manners anymore – you are right. I did not pick that chicken pox scab and likely rolled over on my forehead during the night and knocked it off. My mom said “I told you it would leave a scar in the middle of your forehead!” People are nosy and sometimes just without any class.

    1. I love how you own your reality. There are some people I’d do that with – those who wouldn’t make an issue of it or change their relationship with me. If they’re friends of course they wouldn’t, but if they’re strangers or workmates…
