The hardest thing about having scars is that people do see them, they do also come to the same conclusions about them as it is becoming an increasingly common occurrence (with both negative reactions and stereotypes unfortunately). In these situations I found that there are only two options, firstly is to hide them, use concealer, makeup, bracelets, long sleeves (This is more then often looked past then others think), the second is just to leave it and come to an understanding that these are what you have for the time being, and hopefully they will not be there in the future. The people around you will not always understand but you can for yourself and eventually understand why they are there and move past it. I’m not saying wear them proudly but more so accept that they are once a apart of your life and not always going to be. Try to remove the shame factor and self-consciousness as it will just push you further down that hole. But for now perhaps just try to see what as a person you can do for yourself, look at what you really feel about them and how you want things to change. Hopefully you can talk about it to people who have been in the same position. I myself have, and your more then welcome to discuss it here.
