Scabs On My Knees

There is difference between scabs and callouses.

Callouses are like wearing a medal of honor to show continuous work.

Scabs show my inability to let it heal, my unwillingness to give up the pain and my pleasure in picking away at the sore and my enjoyment in the new pain.

Learning to live a healthy life is a circle of becoming aware of when I am picking at the scabs as opposed to building up the callouses.

I had so many scabs from falling down over and over, they never got a chance to heal. Now when I feel like an open wound I know it's time to protect and soothe myself. Self-punishment comes in many forms, we need to find self-fulfillment that is everlasting. PS you rock! -
