I don’t regret the painful times; I bare my scars as if they were medals. – Paolo Coelho
The stars above may be nothing but replicas of the sun that scorched our skins. But from far away the stars look like some kind of magical fairy dust shining down from heaven.
Things tend to look perfect when they’re far away and out of reach. This is also true when it comes to painful times. Looking back, everything may appear to be clearer than they were when they happened. Memories have a way of making things appear brighter and better than the present. It’s really amazing what time and distance could do to our perceptions. When you have given it enough time, from a distant even the ugliest of scars could glitter like diamonds.
