i have several scars on my body,but the one on my leg really impress me most.i was made 6 years ago,when i was in my middle school life.it happened before school's sports meeting,i entered for the 100m race. i practiced myself the day before the sports meeting.i was so eager to get a wonder result,so i practiced very hard.at that time,we didn't have plastic track,but just sandy one with lots of little stones.this is the cause of the trouble.i accidentally stumbled by a stones,and slipped a long distance,having my leg cut by a sharp stone...of course,i have to stay in bed in stead of racing on a track.i was really depressed then,i did all but to attend the race but i even couldn't show up on the track.my mother sat beside me all the day and tried to comfort me.she said,"process is more important than the result.we have seen your diligent practicing,it's enough.we are so pride of u.i am sure u can have a satisfied result next year..." yeah,now the scar is still on my leg and i think it will stay there for ever.the scar and also my mother's words"process is more important than the result"

i dont have any scars on my body because i took very good care of my body. i think that results are more important than process most of the time but for your case, i can make an exception. you tried your hardest to train for the 100m race and i respect that. it doesnt matter if you couldnt attend the race because your spirit was in the right place.

wow.you are so lucky!i think should become a pilot.you know,pilots are usually not allowed to have scars.bleed would infiltrate from the scars if they fly. and thank you for your appreciation of my hard work and spirit. in addition,i think it's impossible to definite which is more important,results or process.it just depends.

I have scars but they are just from the chicken pox so that is boring But i have a friend that has a scar under her left eye and she got it when she was 6 years old She was running around her backyard and she slipped in some dog poop and hit the picnic table! I think that is a funny story

i have one on my forehead. it is near the bridge of the hairline. its not too noticeable but it will never go away. i got it when i was like less than five. i was playing around the house and following my mom around when i had tripped and fell over something. i fell right into the corner of the wall which cause me to cut open my forehead a little less than an inch. i had to get stitches and i had a scar ever since. strangely, even though i had this experience, i recall multiple times where i ran into the wall even at an older age. you think i would learn after the first time huh? lol it was a good thing though i didnt break open my skull or hit my eye or anything because i wouldnt want brain damage or a missing eye or anytihng.
