Hey, guess what? You don't have to hide with God - He sees everything, anyways, no matter how many layers of clothes you have on. So don't be ashamed, but show off your victory and your choice to fight against sin Smile

I agree with all of you....

Lizzie...I wish I could hide too...it's a horrible thing though...

But God can see through layers of clothes, and it only matters what God thinks! Right?

I used to cover up ALL the time, like most people who struggle with SI do. But, considering I lived in the south, five minutes from the beach, it was more difficult and tricky. Swimsuits, shorts, tanks, you name it. I was walking around in a hoodie and jeans in 100 degree weather.

When I turned 18 (I'm 20), I decided I was so tired of hiding. It was a hard adjustment... so I started with armwarmers. I bought a black pair, a brown pair, and a rainbow pair. This way, I was able to wear short sleeves, but still be covered. Eventually... I came to terms with it, and slowly took the armwarmers off. First, only around close friends. The first day of my senior year of high school I decided to wear short-sleeves. It was EXTREMELY hard, but I left my hoodie at home, so I couldn't chicken out. Yes, I got a lot of stares and questions... but this is what I learned...

If I constantly covered up... I was still letting SI control me. I was still walking in shame. I was saying that that was still me. But, once I started wearing short sleeves... not only was I so much cooler... but I wasn't letting SI dictate and control my life anymore. I was able to go to the beach with my friends and simply have fun. Also, once I started wearing short sleeves and shorts, it was a great incentive NOT to hurt myself. If I all of a sudden started covering up again, people would notice. I realized over time, that when I cover up, I tend to think about doing it more, verses when I wear short sleeves.

It's 100 degrees today... I'm wearing a tank and shorts, and am covered in scars. Some 10 years old, some five years old, some five months old. But, that's not me anymore. Yes, people still stare and ask questions... but I know who I am in Christ. By HIS wounds we are healed, not our own. He bled so I wouldn't have to. He died for me. Why live my life in shame and guilt by covering up? I am a new creation in Christ. Out with the old... in with the new!


I realize this was quite a ramble, and I'm sorry.

But, perhaps you can look at Summer as a good thing? Slowly uncover yourself, and not only will you feel amazingly free... but it would be great incentive not to walk back in those issues.

Oh, and another thing. After reading this post and replying... I thought of one more thing pertaining to this. There's a song called "Hide" by Joy Williams that is AMAZING! I thought I would share it with you (ya'll), since it is about hiding physically, and emotionally.

To anyone who hides behind a smile
To anyone who holds their pain inside
To anyone who thinks they're not good enough
To anyone who feels unworthy of love
To anyone who ever closed the door
Closed their eyes and locked themselves away

You don't have to hide
You don't have to hide anymore
You don't have to face this on your own
You don't have to hide anymore

So come out, come out, come out wherever you are
To anyone who's tryin' to cover up their scars
To anyone who's ever made a big mistake
We've all been there, so don't be ashamed
Come out, come out and join the rest of us
You've been alone for way too long

And if you feel like no one understands
Come to the One with scars on His hands
'Cause He knows where you are, where you've been
His scars will heal you if you let Him
