scarred people are beautiful.


oh my peklat!! til today i hear it, “pahingi naman ng barya, o?” yeah, yeah. malakas lang talaga mang-alaska ang mga pinoy! hehe.



let me introduce you to my two scars.

yung una, yung mas light na nasa kaliwa, i got during my grade school girl scout days. we were playing patintero on the street while waiting to go on our christmas caroling project. masyado atang malakas ang pag-taya sa akin ng kasama ko! i fell, it hurt, but just like the trooper that i am, i got up, dusted off my green uniform, and was off to our caroling. by the time we got to the third house, my leg suddenly felt itchy. yun pala. tumutulo na yung dugo from my wound! as in umaagos! i was sent home ahead.

yung pangalawa, yung mas dark na nasa kanan, i got just a few months ago. walking five steps from the gate of my workplace to where my car was parked, out of nowhere, all of a sudden, unexpectedly, natisod ako. yung parang binatukan ako mula sa likod, tumilapon paharap, sumubsob sa kalye, at ayun, tumama ang tuhod ko sa semento. totoo pala yung sa mga sitcom, yung pag nadadapa, tumatalbog?

so.. how do my scars make me beautiful?

actually, these scars don’t. sa totoo lang, physically, yuck siya. i’m such a big fan of girls i see na talagang mala-manika ang legs. huwooow talaga! salamat na lang sa mga produkto tulad ng sally hansen spray, those times that i need to wear a short dress, nairaraos ko naman. or those other times on the beach or when in shorts, pakapalan na lang ng mukha. hehe.



but it did help me a lot on my long quest to be comfortable with myself. of course mas madaling sabihin na “i’m comfortable in my own skin” kapag flawless ka. but for me, having all these scars growing up helped me have this attitude na, “hey, nagkaroon ako ng childhood! history ko yan! at bawat peklat, may kwento yan.” of course i wish that i could freely flaunt my legs, sino ba naming girl ang ayaw nun, diba? but hey, i’ve come to terms with the fact na isa yun sa imperfections ko, i have to learn how to deal with it, at hindi ko naman ikasasama bilang tao at kristiyano na may peklat ako diba. :p

but scarred people are beautiful.. right?

i am a proud member of search-in circle 70 ng la salle zobel! those who went to any la salle school are familiar with this, but to those who aren’t, search-in is basically a retreat that junior high school students can attend, where they learn more about themselves, their social responsibility, and the LoRd.

i remember this beautiful story titled “scarred people are beautiful”. wala man akong access sa files ng search-in, with the help of my sister aissa (SI C55) and our good friend ian (SI C70), we were able to put together the story so i can share it with you. here goes.




once upon a time, there was this big piece of rock living peacefully on a mountaintop. one day, he gets transported somewhere far, far away. all of a sudden, he receives multiple blows around his body. he gets hurt once, twice, more times. he’s hurt bad. he doesn’t know why he’s being beaten, but it goes on and on. one day, it suddenly all stops. everything becomes peaceful just like it was before. after some time, he notices that people start to look at him, they stop and stare, and he’s wondering why. one day, there were two workers walking by, and they were carrying a big mirror. the rock saw his reflection, and saw, he was now a beautiful statue.


sometimes, or oftentimes, we are filled with uncertainty of why we feel the pain that we feel. in the end, all these blows that we receive, mold us to become beautiful beings.

ang say ni GoD sa mga scars na ito?

one of my favorite passages in the bible is james 1: 2-4. i like reading it those times that i feel down and depressed..

“consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

It is so nice to know that there is a famous and fabulous TV personality who is not ashamed to share her faith with people. Ate Bianca, you really make Christians like you proud and inspired because of the simple things that you do to encourage people and learn about the SAVIOR.

The story that you mentioned is as wonderful, heartwarming, and inspiring as the soul that the Lord has bless you. Sana maibigay na rin yung kapartner ng soul na iyan, but I guess He's still wrapping that special gift for you.

Dahil sa story, naalala ko tuloy yung "Break Me" song ni Mr. Gary Valenciano, another Christian that serves as an inspiration and a blessing to me:

Make me and take me
Can you find me in this world
I've chosen and never let me go
Hold me and mold me
And if there's no other way
To make me whole
Go ahead and break me
Then remake me
Hold it on i won't give up
Coz i know you wont give up
On me

Many thanks!
Be A Blessing!

the story you just told , hmmm...it really "rocks". galing :)hopefully one day, i'll be able to use it as example when i give talk to our community.thanks for sharing.

diana said...

hi ate bianca. ako din may peklat, pero keri na lang. hehe:)

i agree din sa sinabi mo na pag nadapa ka, tumatalbog. nadapa ako sa gateway para akong tumalbog. nakakahiya. :)

keep it up! nakakainspire yung mga sinusulat mo sa blog mo. :)

kaRen_myxmatch said...

From peklat to being confident to loving the Lord. this is really an uplifting post Bianca :-)
(buti gumaling na yung sugat mo that you got few months ago, that was weeks or days before PDA's big night ata hehe)


There are really times when you do not feel beautiful and confident about yourself... ang dami din kasing bothering things sa paligid natin. But hey, we have to have scars,failures, get down at times, feel depressed for us to APPRECIATE life's blessings more. and be molded as a complete and fulfilled person...

hmmm... FEEL FREE TO LOVE YOURSELF ayt? :)

travel_gypsy said...

three months ago...i quit my job, packed my bags and flew to the unknown. all i knew was that i was doing something that my heart has been screaming for me to do for the longest time - live and work in europe.

i had nothing to my name...all i had was my dream and deep faith that my savior will just take care of me. those three months were the happiest, most exciting, saddest, loneliest and proudest moment of my life. and true enough, god has just been so good to me. never leaving my side throughout the journey.

i may not know you personally but i have been an avid fan of your blog. and though there would be times that could be challenging and not so positive, i know that you can go through them. your posts reflect your strength and deep faith...and with these things, you'd surely make it.

thank you so much for touching my life in more ways than one. your thoughts and stories are a great source of inspiration and encouragement.

and if things will go as planned, and i find myself lonely and low in hamburg...i will definitely remind myself that all those things are essential to my path on becoming a beautiful "statue".

take care and continue living and being passionate with life!!!

Ryan Salvanera said...

A classmate once wrote those very same words “scarred people are beautiful” in my scrapbook (haha! I actually owned one before and still have it stashed somwhere).

Come to think of it, she might have gotten that term from the search-in retreat bucase she was also a Lasallian, that is, before she jumped over the fence ;).

Cheers!

jane said...

wow!!! bukod sa inspiring yung last post mo eh nakakatuwa kang magsulat. as in malaman.

wuhoo!you made me proud again lola bianca...your such a true person!

ako rin..maraming peklat!so,ako rin..IM FREYTI!hihi

pbb_adik said...

Very well said Bianca! You are a real source of encouragement and inspiration!

In this age of cosmetics and beauty science wonders, how can we tell who and what is real? Only few people are brave enough to expose their true self. Sa peklat pa lang nagkakasubukan na, e sa ugali pa kaya?

You're rare specie... especially among celebrities. Sana dumami pa ang lahi mo! Tita Ofel must be really proud of you...

nicely said...

i also have two scars, one is on the left knee and the other on the right. masakit nung fresh pa, nakayod ba naman ng pako nung ngtataguan kami, at ung isa sa natalisod din ako habang nagpipiko.

pero you're right, biancz. history natin ito. these scars only prove that we had a happy childhood.

way to go!

janie wanie said...

you know what scars are for?

it's a reminder that all wounds could be healed.. though scars stay forever and maybe, taint our lives, it tells us that we can surpass everything. the more scars you have, the better person you become.

she said...

oh! one of my favorite bible verses. :)

meron din akong isang faint na scar on my right knee. madami ako sa siko. pero hindi siya ganu halata not unless titigan mo. hihi.

and yes, totoo yung sa mga sitcom na tumatalbog kapag nadadapa. i, for once, experienced that. well, almost. buti na lang, na-regain ko ang balance ko pero kahit na hindi ako tuluyang plumakda sa harap ng maraming tao (pagbaba ko ng jeep, naglalakad ako, kagagaling ko lang ng school at pauwi na, and i thought of dropping by sa grocery to buy some chichas), grabe! tumalbog pa din ako. yun nga lang, patalon. haha. parang ang labo!! basta, yun na yun. =))

parang diamond, they have to go through fire to attain that glowing shine. but don't you worry, the one holding you in the fire is our Big Boss up there. we're still in good hands. :)

it's really nice to know and i am really blessed by those people who is not ashamed to share thier faith with others.

keep on doing it bianca. God smiles. :)

just wana share lang ang life verse ko. i am comforted by this verse whenever i feel down.

2 cor. 12:9
"My grace is sufficient for you for My power is made perfect in your weaknesses."

God bless you. :)

richard said...

wow! just stumbled here... what a surprise! hehhehe..

I, honestly, am shocked to know that you have scars in your legs. I thought that almost all celebrities have flawless skin. And now, after reading your entry, I feel more comfortable with myself! Thank you, Bianca! :)

You're my inspiration, idol! :)

echo said...

hello bianca,
I have something to share with you. I know it doesnt really fit the theme of "personal scars" but Ive noticed a trend here on your Blog in regards to personal trials,afflictions and growth...and most of all God.

Hopefully you like this It is really worth reading:

Malachi 3:3 says: "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver."

This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this
statement meant about the character and nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get
back to the group at their next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch
him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest
beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver.

As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and
let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold
the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to
burn away all the impurities

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought
again about the verse that says: "He sits as a refiner and purifier of
silver."

She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front
of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined.

The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver,
but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the
fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be
destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, "How do
you know when the silver is fully refined?"

He smiled at her and answered, "Oh, that's easy -- when I see my image in
it"

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has his eye
on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.

Godbless
Echo.

and that story that you tp;d was really beautiful and inspiring. :)

mavic said...

This is my first time to visit your blog and what a surprise that your post was all about SCARS...i can relate! Last year i had a bad case of allergy after taking just a tablet of an allupurinol drug... it ended up that it was STEVENS JOHNSON syndrome! I dont know if you have any idea of that...but it left parts of my face with spots and scars on my arms, back and legs.....just because of a single pill.... as if i have "pasa" (hematomas) and scars for life..but it really is hard to hide it..esp the ones under my chin, cheeks and arms.

Thank God that at least I was able to survive it in just 2weeks. I heard other cases ended up into blindness or even death! I just think na at least ako mouthsores and rashes that turned into peklat lang...nothing serious like blindness or death...

It has been a year now and just like you...there are times that i needed to hide it...i never wore make up before but now i really think that concealers are really heaven sent!hehehe ==>(bo-ing of Benefit and secret camouflage of Laura Mercier and the Sally Hansen that you use are the best for me!)

Finally...Good news...My scars are all starting to disappear now....after trying so many producs and med procedures that did nothing...i have been using La Mer Concentrate and Body Serum for almost 2mos now...its working for me....it's all starting to lighten now...i discovered it thru searching online for possible scar treatments...Its quite expensive but i think its better than just buying concealers forever! I bought mine online its cheaper but they have it here in rustans makati.

The Cracked Pot is a nice story. We often view our imperfections negatively but in God's eyes, they serve a purpose...

The Cracked Pot

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on the end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots was perfectly made and never leaked. The other pot had a crack in it and by the time the water bearer reached his master's house it had leaked much of it's water and was only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his master's house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you." "Why?" asked the bearer. "What are you ashamed of?" "I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master's house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don't get full value from your efforts," the pot said.

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, "As we return to the master's house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path."

Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path, and this cheered it some. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again the pot apologized to the bearer for its failure.

The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you've watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master's table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house."

Each of us has our own unique flaws. We're all cracked pots. But if we will allow it, God will use our flaws to grace his table. In God's great economy, nothing goes to waste. Don't be afraid of your flaws. Acknowledge them, and you too can be the cause of beauty. Know that in our weakness we find our strength.

Ria Hazel said...

I was inspired by the quote that you posted. I am actually healing scars inside my heart right now. And to think that no matter how you try to forgive, the memories and the hurtful things this person gave you would often times make you remember the pain.

I have an invisible scar, but that made me firm in passing judgements and dealing with people. And hopefully, God could erase it slowly. :D

Thanks for the meaningful post. :D

hay bianca,akala ko ako lang namroblema sa peklat ko.kahit pala tulad mong celebrity eh may ganyan din pala.
nway,i got my peklay when i was still in my elementary,as in napaso talga ako sa may binti.simula nun,super hiya akong nagsoshorts.actually lagi akong nakapants or nakatokong para matakpan ung scar ko na kasinlaki ng piso pag lumalabas,kahit na gustong gusto kong magsuot ngdress na above the knee,di ko talga kaya.
hanap din ako ng spray na yan,sana makakita ako.
eto siguro ung pinakaikinahihiya ko physically,but then wala na rin akong magagawa kundi tanggapin,huhuhu!
though now,ung husband ko love na love pa rin ako despite of this peklat,hehe.meron na rin akong two kids kaya ngaun super ingat ako sa kanila kasi ayaw kong maranasan nila ung nangyari sa akin.
nice to read your blog talga,nakakainspire!
keep up the good work!God bless!!

So.... I know what to do on my friend's wedding..sally hansen spray....ang sagot. Thanks Bianca for sharing your little secret.

ekang said...

hi, bianca. grabe. gusto ko lang sabihing you wrote exactly how i'm feeling. sobrang maharot kasi akong bata noon, totomboy-tomboy pa, kaya naman sobrang dami kong peklat sa paa. e maputi pa naman ako kaya halatang-halata. tapos na-appendectomy ako last year kaya may mahaba at matabang scar ako ngayon sa tiyan. pati nga sa ulo meron e. x-shaped pa. hehehe. kaya salamat dun sa mga produts na sinabi mo. yun lang. :D

pam said...

Hi Bianca! Waaaah! Favorite ko magpatintero sa Zobel! Sa malapit sa gate 1! hehehe.

I'm happy to see your blog. Yung mommy ko parating tuwang-tuwa pagnakikita ka sa TV. Papababain pa talaga ako parati para manuod.
"Pam, yung classmate mo o..."
"Sikat na sikat na talaga sya!"
"Ay! Gustung-gusto ko yan!"
"Ang daldal ni Bianca."
"Ow... Hindi ko alam na Pinoy Big Brother pala siya"
I think she met your family in a real estate thing years ago so natutuwa sya pag-naaalala nya yun at nakikita ka nya on TV.

Sige! Good luck in your career and congratulations! Will pa-autograph when I see you one day. Heheh :-)

hi bianca! im 16 and i really look up to you because you choose to empower yourself with all the things that make so many Filipinos so insecure... like being morena. or bottom-heavy (i read this in the Seventeen mag issue where you were the cover Ü). or ma-peklat. I am all those things, and sometimes, my insecurities stop me from doing what I want. Thank you for being such a role model. I hope that someday I can be as confident as you are.

hi u'r so pretty in ur pics...(";)
well regarding sa scars issue.....eh i also have it but i'm proud to say na kaya ako nagkaron nun is because i really enjoyed my childhood days and sometimes because of "di sinasadyang katangahan ko rin"...hehehe well anyways we have to accept our flaws as an indispensable part of ourselves. Holliwood celebrities are beautiful simply because they believe they are, no matter what other people say!...right?!
So the bottomline here...Some of them are just like you, me and anybody else, they're not flaw-free but they carry themselves as if they were anyway. They're not perfect but they're still beautiful.
Eh diba in God's eyes naman we're all fair in everything and syempre lahat tau PERFECT para sa kanya.

thanks ate bianca for making this imperfect world seems to be not totally 100% perfect but ALMOST perfect.( i called you "ATE" because u'r older than me...)

hi bianca!

i have a scar, too. i got it because of an ankle injury way back in hs. i also feel insecure that i cant flaunt my legs anymore. kasi it's hard to cover it up. malaki kasi eh.

but now i've learned to love my scar. i cant do anything abt it na din naman. nanjan na siya and forever na siguro siya jan (unless i get a laser or something. hehehe!) =P my friend once said, "wag ka mainsecure coz 'your scar is beautiful'" and nagulat lang ako na it's similar dun sa line na nakalagay sa entry mo =P

let's love our scars! =P hahahaha! i love your blog! good thing your not on blog leave anymore! =D God bless!

“consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”


-iv also encountered this passage sa devotion ni Oswald Chamber "MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST". do you have one? i suggest you get one.=)

Hi ate bianca. Na-inspired din ako sa story mo. Ako i really have scars sa legs and arms caused by Fleas actually, even now college meron pa din akong mga scars, and the feeling na pag naglalakad ka, titingin sila sa braso ko kasi napaka-visible ng mga scars ko, and ang dark pa, recently lang nagiging down ako sa sarili ako kasi feeling ko ang kadiri ko tignan. Kaya I dont usually wear shorts and skirts kasi super nahihiya nga ako sa skin ko, plus ang dark pa ng skin ko kaya ang pangit tlaga tgnan. Then nakita ko tong blog mo, mejo nawala yung pagiging down ko sa self ko.

God will really help us sa mga struggles na fine-face natin, we should pray to him consistently lang :)
