Allright, I thought about this last night as I was talking to one of my friends. He has a scar about 1" long above his right eyebrow and he absolutely hates it. He smears every imagineable kind of scar fading treatment on it and goes so far as to put makeup on it at times to hide it. He considers nothing about it good and is afraid of people noticing it. I have one that's about 3/4" long that goes from just below my left nostril almost all the way to my lip. However, I consider scarring as "character marks" and consider each one a reminder of a story or a reminder of what not to do. I almost look forward to the summer when my face takes color except for the line across my lip. (and another by my right eye, but I have to get REALLY dark for it to show up) So, do you consider scarring on the face, hands, and lower arms stories and marks of character or do you try to cover yours up?
