Scraped my cars bumper, I’m so sad

I was driving today when I needed to pull over. When I pulled over something in the road made a loud bang underneath my car, I checked my car and the underneath of my bumper is scraped, I can also see a little bit of the edge is scraped.

Should it be very hard to get this repaired?

Is it just a scratch in the bumper's paintwork (assuming it's painted), or is it actually cracked?

You can buy materials to fill and cover up bumper scratches, or replace the whole thing. However scratches are a bit of an inevitability for a car and sometimes you just have to live with this and not let it worry you

Then, as @Zarek says, you can just repair it yourself (perhaps with some touch-up paint) or just ignore it.

If you pay someone to get it professionally resprayed it'll only get scratched again the next day anyway!
