my favorite scars are the stretch-marks on my breasts. when I was younger I became very suddenly aware of how rarely they’re shown in media, and spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out ways to hide them. that seems so silly to me now - this sort of scarring is so incredibly common!
It’s not only common but I find the uniqueness so beautiful. I’m glad you’ve realized how nice stretch marks can be and accepted your own. It’s important for us all to realize what the media shows us is in no way an accurate representation of real life. And lucky for us we have online communities like this one so that we can share and show each other what normal really is. Thanks so much for sharing your submission with us.
