If you had stretch marks from your growing years, you probably know that stretch marks may fade but never completely leave you. Your post conception stretch marks too may or may not fade away. Chances are you would have tried using a lot of expensive creams, lotions and oils that promise to get rid of them and they did not fade away. Most of them do not work and if you have not tried using any, please do not waste your time.
It can be frustrating to listen to all those stories from moms who have gotten rid of their stretch marks when your stretch marks are still fresh and very noticeable. What makes it even worse is when people ask you why you have them, why you aren’t trying to get rid of them or how you can hide them.
But it is high time you realise what a wonderful thing your stretch marks symbolize and why you should own them. Stretch marks are not to be looked upon as something to hide or be ashamed of. It is not to be thought of as an imperfection. Your stretch marks are a sign of something truly wonderful and you shouldn’t have to hide them.
There is a story behind every scar on your body and your pregnancy stretch marks have the biggest, most wonderful story ever. Instead of seeing stretch marks as an actual imperfection, look at them as tigress stripes. You are a fierce tigress who endured all that pain to deliver your baby. Your scars from war, the marks that will forever remind you of your struggle and how it was all worth it in the end.
Stretch marks are a sign of your strength. You don’t have to worry about fitting into the society’s standards of beauty. Just wear them as a symbol of pride. They symbolize you having given birth to a new life and you should be proud of it. There will be at least one person who will be grateful for your stretch marks - your baby for letting him/her come into this world.
