Now, I'm really proud. To me, the fact that I have scars is a sign I've gone through something. For many of us in our 20s and 30s, having a positive or even neutral body image can be difficult enough, but experiencing something like what Rachael did — a fire that initially scarred 20 percent of her body, then another 20 percent as doctors took skin from uninjured parts of her body to help her heal — it can feel like the goalpost is ever-changing.

That constant loop of re-acceptance can wear on a person. I miss having skin that I didn't have to baby and worry about. It could've been so much worse.
Ultimately, for her, it boils down to perspective and having a realistic mindset.www.marmor-glanz.de/images/447/1218-handy-hacken-wlan.php

For her, coming to terms with her scars is also about controlling the narrative, which she does partially through social media. Then, she went to therapy.

I feel like beauty in the modeling industry should not be based on flawlessness because then that's setting up really high standards for the normal woman out there, as well as for myself. So I've learned to embrace it on my day-to-day life. I usually don't even wear makeup. Not the dolled up, flawless model.

Risks and repercussions are never fully weighed. People leap and almost always land on rocky ground.

No one is blameless, but villains are difficult to single out-everyone seemingly bears responsibility for his or her desires and for the outcome of difficult choices so often made hopefully and naively.
