youve grown up a lot

you think so? i’ve definitely come a long way, i think. it used to be “all i want is to be normal” and now it’s more of “i’m not normal and i never will be and that’s fine”

i'm sorry if this is too invasive and you definitely don't have to answer but as someone with scars myself i'm just curious, if there was a way to get rid of them, would you?

nooo this isn’t too invasive at all, but i really appreciate you checking with me, first! 

no, i wouldn’t get rid of them. i used to want to really badly, but i’ve reached a point in my life where i just either don’t care about my scars or am happy that i have them when they allow me to connect with someone on a personal level. having visible scars means people are more likely to talk to me about self harm issues because they know i’m someone who understands. being able to be a safety net in a world of uncertainties for some people is a fantastic thing and i wouldn’t trade it for anything. 

i think my scars are beautiful. i think the way that they change colour in different temperatures is beautiful. i think they add something interesting to an otherwise unremarkable stretch of skin. to be clear, the fact that i hurt myself isn’t what was beautiful - the fact that i OVERCAME it is. 

i am covered in scars. i have scars on my arms, neck, breasts, stomach, thighs, and calves from where i intentionally hurt myself. i am forever marred for the rest of my life. i will never, EVER be normal

and that’s fucking okay. that’s fine. it’s okay to have a body that you once tried to destroy. it’s okay to have a body that’s mottled and discoloured. you don’t have to hide the white skin on your arms from where you hurt yourself again and again. you don’t have to cover your breasts in front of your partner to hide the scars there. you don’t have to wear long shorts to hide the angry red lines you have on your thighs.

i hurt myself A LOT and i will have these marks for the rest of my life and that’s FINE. i don’t have to cover my scars and i shouldn’t be expected to. they’re from a part of my life that was painful and said but it’s one that taught me a lot and helped me grow. it’s easier for me to be happy these days because i can look at my scars and remember how fucking sad i was.

do not let anyone ever make you think you have to conceal your scars to be happy. find someone who doesn’t love you despite your scars, but instead loves them as a part of you.

i’m extremely uncomfortable with representations of characters with scars that only involve them being happy with themselves once they hide their scars and go back to “normal”

like i understand that’s how some people cope but i find it an extremely harmful narrative because it implies in those with scars an inability to grow or learn? it suggests that there is nothing to be learned from the painful experiences they endured and that all they can do is pretend to be “normal”. and that hurts me on a personal level because it’s the same shit people have put on me for years. suggesting creams and gels and surgeries that could make me look “normal” again.

the importance that society invests into making people with scars “just like everyone else” instead of into getting everyone else to recognize those with scars as people is so frustrating.

"i only wear velcro shoes and i’m a lesbian" is my new tagline

How short are you that you need to stand on your toes to talk to a cow?

Looks like we got ourselves a city slicker

How freaking talk are your cows? My cousins own a dairy farm and the cows are about chest height.

You sure talk a lot of shit for someone whose cousin has short cows

okay since some of you are too thick to come to this conclusion on your own, i’m here to tell you that there are ways to misuse the “anonymous” option
