I appreciate you sharing this with all of us Fallyn. As for me, I think sometimes when I am out in public and I choose to wear sleeveless tops I feel rejected by others who stare at my old self-harm scars. Some do it with out knowing they do it, and others just stare, hard, not knowing the effect it could potentially have on someone. When things like this happen, I try my best to realize how far I have come and that there is nothing I can do about my scars except maybe continue to cover them up with tattoos. Nevertheless, they are a part of my journey of recovery, and I am being strong in choosing to expose my raw truth to the world around me whether they are able to handle it or not.
