Scars are reminders
Reminders not always of pain
But even when pain, not always bad pain
Not all scars are physical
Not all scars are private
Some things that were not scars become scars later
Our social media accounts are the scrapbooks of our lives
You have memories with so and so from 2 years ago
What will you do with these reminders
Just because you’re holding a knife
Doesn’t mean you have to cut or bleed
You could make a sandwich
You could do something positive
Just because you can open up old wounds
Doesn’t mean that you should
Sometimes old wounds are there for you to learn from so that you don’t make new ones

How does that make you feel?
