Embracing scars and learning to live with them

Scars can be a painful reminder of a traumatic event, injury, or even self-harm. It’s natural to want to cover or minimize them, both for aesthetic reasons and to avoid curious or hurtful questions from others.

There are many ways people cover scars, both physically and emotionally. Some people use clothing or accessories to hide scars, such as long sleeves, scarves, or makeup. Others may choose to get tattoos or piercings over the scars, either as a way to camouflage them or to reclaim their bodies.

Emotionally, people may hide their scars by avoiding situations or people that might trigger negative feelings or memories. They may put on a brave face or pretend that everything is fine, even when they’re struggling inside.

While covering scars can be a coping mechanism, it’s important to address the underlying issues that caused them. This may involve seeking therapy, connecting with support groups or loved ones, or practicing self-care to manage stress and anxiety.

It’s also essential to remember that scars are a natural and normal part of life. They don’t define us, and they don’t have to limit us. By embracing our scars and learning to live with them, we can turn our pain into strength and resilience.


Caving back into my own world

Sometimes life can become overwhelming, and the pressures of daily routine can make you yearn for an escape. For me, that escape is my own world, a place where I can retreat and forget the worries of the day.

At times, it can be difficult to resist the temptation to withdraw and disengage from reality. The lure of my own world, where everything is easy and familiar, is strong. But, deep down, I know that returning to the real world is critical to success and happiness.

The real world can be harsh and challenging, but it is also a place where growth and progress occur. Engaging with others, confronting obstacles, and taking on new experiences provide opportunities to learn and develop.

However, that doesn’t mean that my own world has no value. It serves as a refuge for me, allowing me to recharge and regroup. It’s a place where I can be alone with my thoughts or engage in my hobbies, without any outside distractions.

It’s all about finding a balance between my own world and the real world. As much as I value being alone with my thoughts, I understand the importance of engaging with others and facing life’s challenges head-on.

So, whenever I feel the temptation to retreat into my own world, I remind myself that there is a world of opportunities waiting for me out there, and that confronting them head-on is the best way to grow and succeed.

The Power of Self-Acceptance: How to Embrace Your True Self

Self-acceptance is a vital aspect of a healthy and fulfilling life. When you embrace who you genuinely are, including your flaws and imperfections, you will feel a sense of self-love and understanding that can help to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing.

Here are some practical tips to help you embrace your true self:

1. Practice self-compassion

It’s easy to be hard on yourself, but it’s essential to give yourself grace and compassion when things don’t go as planned. When you practice self-compassion, you are more likely to accept your mistakes and see them as opportunities for growth.

2. Identify your values

Identifying your values can be a powerful way to embrace your authentic self. Define what’s important to you, and align your life with your values as much as possible.

3. Embrace your uniqueness

Everyone is different and has lived unique experiences. Celebrate your uniqueness and embrace it as something that sets you apart from others. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to life, and your differences are what make you special.

4. Recognize and challenge negative self-talk

Negative self-talk can be damaging to your self-esteem, making it difficult to embrace your true self. When that little voice in your head starts to criticize and judge, question whether those thoughts are true or if there is another perspective.

5. Set realistic expectations

Setting unrealistic expectations can lead to disappointment and a sense of failure. Embracing who you genuinely are means acknowledging your limitations and setting realistic goals that honor them.

In conclusion, self-acceptance is an ongoing journey and takes practice. Embracing your true self may not always be easy, but it’s worthwhile for your mental and emotional wellbeing. Remember that you are unique and wonderful just the way you are, and you deserve to love yourself for it.

Back To Blogging

Allow me to re-introduce myself……….

Hi, my name is Kenny, I’m 26 and I live in the UK. I’ve been on a general social media hiatus for about 3 weeks now due to wanting to find my own personal inspiration and to just make sure my mental health is in the right place.

My absence from this space in the past 3 weeks has been so refreshing. I enjoy blogging, however, I genuinely loved the peace and quietness I got from the break as well.

During this break, I was able to find myself and figured out that I actually genuinely love writing. I really missed it and couldn’t wait to get back to it. For me, Writing is a better outlet for processing deeper thoughts, feelings, and realisations. Which is probably one of the reasons why I came to miss it soo much.

Life right now, feels perfect, beautiful and warm. It just feels like God heard my prayers and is not only gradually blessing me with everything I desire, but he is giving me clarity on what I want out of life and how I want my year to look like.

I am looking forward to spending more time writing and sharing more beautiful contents with my lovely readers. Welcome back!

Below are the social media platform where you can also find me.
