Buzzfeed's recent photo series called 12 People Talk About Their Scars, Birthmarks, Skin Conditions, And More features a collection of stunning images that get straight to the heart of the matter.
“It hurts when I read people saying things like, ‘I love all my flaws, even my freckles,’" says model Amada. "I don’t find my freckles to be a flaw."
Jennifer, who had open-heart surgery as a child, said: "I always knew the scar was there, but I wasn’t ready for other people to see it. ... Putting [this top] on and looking in the mirror today, I got kind of emotional."
