Most of our strength lies in our scars. Every time I look down at my scars, I am reminded of how brave, strong, courageous, and beautiful I am. My scars don’t make me look like what I’ve been through. It only shows me that I’m human and life happens to us whether we are prepared for it or not. I believe most horrific situations that happen to us, shapes our lives. My scars teach me daily never to take anything or anyone for granted.
My scars are part of my story. I live each day to the fullest, with no regret. I know what it feels like to live a day short. My scars remind me of what it feels like to confident in your skin. My scars don’t define me, my strength does. Most importantly scars, my strengths, makes me beautiful inside and outside.
Nobody is perfect. Each of us has our scars, weaknesses, but we also have our strengths. Let us not be fooled to believe that our scars and weaknesses define us any more than our strengths do. Our strengths are that part of ourselves in which we have indeed succeeded to sharpen, to remain concentrating, to overcome challenges, and to maximize our potential.
Too often we make the mistake of characterizing ourselves by our weaknesses. When we do that, many things go wrong:
First, we create a false narrative about who we really are, which leads us towards sadness and misery.
Secondly, we become confused and displaced. Without real clarity about ourselves, we won’t be able to create a truthful vision of who we can be, nor can we make constructive decisions about how to get there.
Thirdly, we lack happen tools, and the necessary faith in ourselves, that help us endure the challenges of the self-improvement journey, and achieve the progress we are aiming for.
Everything you do during and after this crisis must be with a strong focus on becoming a better version of yourself in your career, health, businesses, family life, relationships, friendships, faith, and society.
