PaintedByCocoa presents #PrettyNScarred – empowering women to be their best selves despite adverse circumstances ๐Ÿ’•

During my second year of university I had a bowl of boiling hot water thrown at my face at the cost of a false rumour that went spreading around the campus. I trusted this person, I thought they were my friend but little did I know they were secretly plotting to harm me.

When your light is bright some people will not understand. They will do everything in their power to hold you back. The experience took a toll on me, I became very insecure and disheartened with the way I looked believing that I would be scarred for life. I stopped going out, didn’t interact with much friends or anyone new, all because I didnโ€™t know how to trust. I started to believe someone wanted to dim my light.

My university experience made me realise that not everyone is who they say they are and that you must trust that little voice in your head that tells you to steer away from things. Talking to my closest friends and family really encouraged me, hearing their prayers motivated me. I was no longer going to hide away and stop being the bubbly outgoing person I was known to be. It took a lot of courage, I had to face a lot of stares, a lot of questions, I held onto my friends words and prayers. I encouraged myself and finally believed that I had something great inside me and that it needed to be shared with the world.

What you are going through or have gone through are merely obstacles. The path isn’t always going to be easy but don’t let that deter you from where you’re going. My name is Terena and I am #PrettyNScarred

PrettyNscarred serves as a platform to help inspire, uplift and give women the courage to strive and push for whatever dreams their hearts desire. #PrettyNScarred is targeted at women who have had a life changing event that has in some way helped shape where they are today.
