On the mend.

Why are we afraid to bleed?
Because it's a visual declaration to us that in some way, we have been hurt.
Something is not right.
Something is out of place, out of order.
We only see blood when something is wrong. 
Blood is a sign of pain, 
a sign of damage, 
an open wound; a hurt we are feeling.
What I've realized lately is that a scar, or a scab means the opposite; 
it means we are on the mend. 
Something is reforming.
Something is healing.
It is a declaration of transformation, and improvement.
Next time you wake up, to see that your face has broken out;
jump for joy; because what this means, is that
we are on the mend.
