But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are…
And you don’t have to change a thing
The world can change its heart…
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful…
I am flawed. I am scarred. I have not come out of life unscathed. I am not all sunshine and rainbows, smiles and laughter. I’m just… not.
… and that’s ok.
The people I’ve met that are all sunshine and rainbows, laughter and fairytales… those people are covering up a deeper, darker being. Desperately keeping that side of themselves hidden from the world. And whether that darker being is truly a bad person, or is simply a scarred version of the good-intentioned person they’d like to appear to be – I don’t know. Mileage may vary, individual-depending, I suppose.
However one thing I will tell you, based on my experience of being a flawed, scarred individual? We are just like you. We’re just more… open… about those things that ail us. Those things that have hurt us and left us just a little bit less. We are open about the struggle that we make every day to just be that much more normal. That much more happy.
That much less able to be hurt by the same person again.
So don’t treat me, and people like me, like we’re freaks, just because we’re a little bit more open than you about those things that terrify us and have left us wounded and wary of you.
That just gives us more reason to be more wary.
