Move on without going backward.
Anyone who has lived life’s various stages will have many scars, age spots, warts and wrinkles that are visible and maybe even annoying.
I just had surgery for a melanoma on my forehead, bigger than most, and it left a V-shaped scar about 2 inches by 3 inches. It doesn’t look pretty, but it’s better than letting the cancer spread.
And many of you also have invisible scars from hurts (physical or emotional) from your past. Sometimes you feel you are scarred from emotional or physical abuse, something in your past you are embarrassed by or ashamed of.
