For many of us who have grown human beings in our bodies, stretch marks are the ultimate reminder of that experience. Of course you don’t need to have been pregnant to have stretch marks either. Many of us have those lovely little silver marks on the insides or outsides of our thighs, on our breasts or around our stomachs after growth spurts when we were younger.
Most of us have a love/hate relationship with our stretch marks. We see them as ‘flaws’ on our skin and wish them away constantly.
Allison Kimmey has fully embraced her stretch marks and when her daughter asked her about them, her response was something we can all learn from.
Do you embrace your stretch marks?
