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.
