Hey all, I am going to start with a side note on this post…because the back story is important to leading you where I am going with this! Lets start here, with the definition of strength:
the quality or state of being physically strong.
the capacity of an object or substance to withstand great force or pressure.
Opposite of strength is weakness, puniness, frailty.
Now when you think of strength what do you think of animal wise…most will say a Tiger they are fierce and rule the lands they live on. Without a doubt one of the strongest animal God created.
Now what do most women call their stretch marks…Tiger marks, why…well they look like tire markings or even tiger scratches right!?!
Did you know that over 80% of ALL women have stretch marks and that is not limited to just women! I know men who have them too! This means that MORE OF us have them then NOT…there is even a Victoria secret model who has them which means as perfect as we think they are they are real women too…Almost all of us do, because we ware real living humans!
Stretch marks come from many things, rapid growth as you are growing in your youth, weight changes, hormonal changes and most of all pregnancy. Wait so if you just exist you can have a stretch mark…YUP!
One of the things I talk about most with women is stretch marks, they don’t know if they should have a shoot they are not perfect they have stretch marks, or asking if I can remove them….Here is my answer, yes I can remove them…BUT I would rather soften them for you because ladies you earned them…you grew strong, you grew emotionally, you might have even grown a human! Hell ya! Thoes are all things to celebrate!
Men usually celebrate this, they wear their scares with pride and as badges of honor. We have been taught to hide them that they are not something anyone wants to see…but I do, and your sisters do too, you are you and each and every part of you is beautiful.
