Remember when we used to write and mail letters and it took days or months to reach its destination, and then we had to wait even more days or months to receive an answer? I remember. Even though I am almost not old enough to have experienced that for long, I still sent some letters before the new communication models came along. I do not remember, at this time, hearing so much about anxiety, stress, depression. The time it took for a letter to arrive was expected without stress. Anxiety, depression, and stress were very little known words. But today? Who has never heard of these?
You and I are composite beings made up of our physical body, mental abilities, spirituality, beliefs, experiences, emotions, hereditary and cultivated habits. This all makes you, YOU!
Have you ever had a bad fall resulting in bruising, sprain, cut, or a broken bone? Did you notice that after the injury you were very careful to protect that place? It is natural to not want to be hurt again, especially in the same place. Even when the wound has healed, you will still be careful to not repeat the injury.
