It’s very cliché to describe people by their flaws and the scars on their body. A lot of people would find it offensive if they’re described by certain parts of their body. Most people with these scars got that from various operations and that can shape our fashion, mannerism, and the confidence level that comes with a scar.

This is the saddest part of it all as it’s hard for anyone to accept their flaws let alone seen with one. But as an artist, I’ve come to understand that flaws are just an expression of beauty but in a reverse direction and because of this, people take several actions to hide their flaws/scars.

Lots of people struggle with their scars, they pretend it doesn’t exist by trying to cover it up with clothing, make-up, facial hair and all sorts but at the end of the day, most people would love to open up more about their flaws because it shows that they’re human and have gone through a rough and tumble life at some point.

Some of our loved ones don’t even care about these scars because they have a personal experience they can relate to and are willing to share in ours too. A friend who works at a beauty centre in a private office space in London said that we all have aspects of our physical appearance that we wish could be improved. In order to do that, we need to let go of whatever it is that’s making us scared. He says it’s a common internal battle as even attractive people fight it too. They feel embarrassed about their certain features.

So, it’s best to expose that feature of yours that makes you insecure and let go of the shame in it. That’s the only way to let that flaw expose the beauty in you. Talk to more people about your scars and don’t let anyone talk you down because of them. These flaws sometimes become the most important element in our lives as they suggest our story and experience, we’ve been through.
