Turn Your Wounds Into Wisdom by Sharing Our Stories | Market to real people | Scoop.it

I selected this beautiful, piece  written by Ann Tran and 2omorrowknight

because it is indeed very wise and inspirational.

 

**This is the kind of article that I love to post because it may change someone's life and move them in a postive direction.

We all have scars. Some are small and others more prominent. Some fade and are forgotten while others persist as vivid reminders of past trauma.

 

**Everyone makes a choice how to grow and move forward in the wake of their wounds.

 

Here are a few highlights:

 

**The moment we become aware of our imperfections from society's viewpoint, those imperfections become scars.

 

**Ironically, we can choose to make these imperfections our perfection. We decide how we deal with the negative words from society and those around us -- whether to allow them to destroy or to empower us.

 

**By sharing our stories, we just might have the opportunity to help heal the scar of one person out there -- maybe even more. If we help one person heal from a scar, then what other amazing things are we capable of accomplishing?
