Scarred Women on Skid Row
February 18, 2013
For several years, I have worked on skid row in downtown Los Angeles with woman that are addicted, abused or have severe mental health issues. I never cease to be amazed at the amount of physical scarring some of these women have. It effects not only their self esteem, but it effects their thinking, their interaction with others and of course, their self image which creates other issues. But I have also noticed that these women want to be beautiful. They will come into the center to eat and interact with other women, dressed in the stangest garb or mixture of clothing some with sequins, enbroidery, beads and nothing of course matches. Their interaction is limited to those of us that they trust and I have always tried to be supportive, ocmplementary without lying, to make suggestions to improve their view and value of themselves.
