We all bear scars, mine just happen to be more visible than most.Rebekah Mikaelson in The Vampire Diaries
Life gives you enough scars, you don't need to manifacture your own.Andy Biersack (Singer)
Having the same scars brings people together.Alexander Herzen
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.Rumi
It's just that... I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is.Life, Failures & Mistakes, BeginningSarah Dessen in The Truth About Forever
Broken hearts healed. Maybe the cracks were always there, like thin scars, but they healed. People lived and worked, laughed and ate, walked and talked with those cracks.
For many, even the scars healed and they loved again.
Doesn't matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, Trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point: All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward, it's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.BeginningAlex Karev in Grey's Anatomy, Season 5
