Nobody who has braved and fought a battle comes away unscarred, even those who are victorious and especially those who have fallen. But our scars are not a mark of shame but a mark of strength, whether victorious or fallen. They symbolise the strength we have within and the strength we have to come. We heal from our wounds as long as we don’t keep reopening them. Keep your scars as a reminder, not a burden.
We are all capable of change. We are all able to move on, move past, and move forward. We are all able to let go of the darkness. We are all able to heal ourselves with love. We are all able to fly even if we’ve forgotten how to. We are all able to find energy within to keep pushing on. We are all able to take what we deserve. We are all able to be courageous enough to plunge into uncharted waters. We are all the warriors and heroes of our own lives. Don’t wait around for somebody else to take your place. Choose to be them.
