I have scars on my arm that I try to cover up, because they’re really unattractive. I don’t feel comfortable wearing short-sleeved shirts, because they’ll show. But, in the summer I want to go to the beach and wear a bathing suit. It’s hard to always worry about hiding the scars and have to think about what I’m going to wear based around them. I really wish I could just get rid of them once and for all.
There are home remedies out there for lessening/getting rid of scars, but the real issue here is your discomfort. I think scars are awesome and true story tellers—they show how strong you are and should serve as a reminder of your strength. Don’t let them hold you back and prevent you from doing the things you love. Embrace your scars, wear whatever you want, and enjoy life! You’re assuming that people think your scars are “unattractive,” but there is no evidence for this misbelief. Employ more positive thinking instead.
