I’m featuring the fourth and final instalment with James Bay. In exploring the themes of love, loss, desire, and sacrifice for my current book, his lyrics hit the mark. They fit the characters I’m writing, some of whom are scarred, both literally and metaphorically.
Visible scars, and especially invisible ones, are evidence of trauma. We cannot know from a person’s scars whether one has conquered an event or become overwhelmed by it.
Scars don’t give any details. For that, we need to dig deeper.
I think scars are a good thing. I have visible and invisible ones myself, as I’m sure everyone does.
They may reveal our fragility, but they also prove our resilience.
Scars remind us we are all imperfect beings.
Have a good week, and feel free to share about your scars, 😉
