The circumstances of human nature and existence has made it quite inevitable for us to face various challenges and sustain injuries in some of them. The discomfort such unpleasant incidents created gives rise to search for solutions. Sometimes, the palliative measures are tailored to eradicate traces of the problem encountered. Even with how advisable it is to subscribe to such remedies, it is important to bear in mind that cases which decline same approach is not something to kill your precious self over or the end of the world. Such repulsive experiences could serve as a source of motivation for you as a woman and others, too, opportune to hear your lessons-filled story. Your scars are part of your past but they do not necessarily define who you are today. It is the objective of this discourse to take a fresh look at the implications of having a scar while beckoning on women to adopt this perception.
In a singles’ conference in July last year, a middle-aged woman shared her life-experience wherein she got raped by hoodlums when she was much younger and the acute pain it flooded her life with. She remained devastated years down the line and carried a knife in her handbag wherever she went in order to avoid being so vulnerable like on that forgettable day. But her life changed when she changed how she saw that scar and refused to be kept down by it. Even after revealing such experience to her husband on the day he proposed, they still got married and blessed with a beautiful daughter. The bottom line is that she was not ashamed of her scar, used it to inspire those present, and the power of perception. Her psychological and emotional fortunes improved when she began to see the experience differently. Often, the problem is not always the problem; the way we see the problem is the problem. Borrow a leaf from that woman. Thus, never be ashamed of the scars that life has left you with. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed, you endured the pain, and love has healed you.
Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill once said “Success is moving from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” This means that as a woman desirous to transcend societal fetters, you must not lose the keenness to make your mark and a difference in the midst of setbacks and challenges. Sometimes, hurdles surface to test how much you want to see your big dreams actualized; they tend to give way when you keep on believing you can still make it to the finish line, persevere, and use scars therefrom as stepping stones. Persistence wears out resistance! However, being strong doesn’t mean you’ll never get hurt. It means even when you get hurt, you’ll never let it defeat you.
Conclusively, scars are often signs that one has engaged in a battle. Like that woman discussed earlier, you must not get ashamed of those scars and aftermath of bad experiences. The key to containing such is seeing them as the ladder to your vision, and realizing your dreams is maintaining a strong zeal.
