Scars: A Portrait of Life

Here is a powerful essay by an extraordinary woman. For any woman who lives with a scarred body, this essay is a must-read.
I’ve been revisiting my issues around my own scars, what they mean to me, what they say about me, how can I see them as beautiful since I have no choice but to live with them because they will never fade away. After reading Dana’s essay, I think I can now embrace them.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I know have an incision scar from my port and two from my recent surgery. I’m thinking of covering them up with tattoos, but they aren’t as bad as I thought they would be. I think I just like the excuse as a way to get more tattoos.
