What a scar can teach us

A couple weeks ago, I noticed a scar on my right hand.

I had no idea how it got there. I’m sure we’ve all had that happen at some point. You get a little scratch and you don’t know what caused it. But I feel like they don’t usually last so long. I can still faintly see the outline of this scar.

It made me think about the struggles we have in life, the emotional wounds we receive. We might not always know what caused those scars as well, but we still have to deal with them.
