I like the comparison you make to scars. What if the scar has healed and is no longer visible or affecting you in any way. Do you think that women need to talk about it or bring it up with a spouse? Or is it okay to keep it a "secret" scar if it doesn't impact the relationship in any way?

I believe if the scar is truly healed and not affecting (hurting) you or anyone else, it can be left alone. Proverbs 2:10-11 says "When wisdom enters your heart and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretiion will preserve you, understanding will keep you. The wisdom of God will guide your discretion or exposure given the circumstance. Note sometimes I've shared an old wound with someone not because it hurt, but because I sensed my overcoming it would help bring healing to another.Quoting Ms LoveLetter:

Sheila, you hit the nail on the head. I believe that there are many folks with scars or wounds. Most of us try to heal or anesthetize ourselves, instead of going to the Great Physician, with food, alcohol, drugs, sex, shopping, etc. I agree with Debra, you need to love yourself and also, trust/give it to God. God Bless.

I personally don't have any scars. I have things in my past that I'm not particularly proud of but I have dealt with it and moved on. If God can forgive me, then I can forgive myself. To hold secrets and guilt and shame, is destructive. You have to learn to love yourself into your healing.

Thank you for sharing practical, biblical solutions to addressing secret scars, Sheila. I'm over 40 years old and I am just discovering my own secret scars and their impact on my life. Most important, I am learning that in HIM, full recovery and restoration is possible.
