Do self harm scars put you off?

I used to self harm a few years ago and now I have ugly scars all the way from my wrist to the top of my shoulder on both arms. I hate them so much. I'm so uncomfortable wearing short sleeve shirts in public. When I do wear one everyone always stares at my arms. I feel like people avoid talking to me once they see my arms because they think I'm still doing it.

  • Me personally, no. It just shows they've been or are still going through a tough time. I actually try my best to go out of my way and be friendly with them because they need it.

  • Yes. It's a sign of weakness and a lack of mental fortitude and perseverance.

  • No it's not a turn off. I've got plenty of my own, just not on my arms
