Thought of the Day

The difference between treating a physical vs. an emotional wound is that one heals faster when it’s covered and the other doesn’t

There’s a common misconception that it’s better to leave wounds exposed to let them air out–dry up and heal. Forget the bandaid.

But…WRONG.

Covering up wounds and keeping them moist, not dry, is what actually promotes healing. However, the opposite rule applies to emotional wounds. While covering up physical wounds promotes faster healing, doing the same with emotional ones only causes them to fester. Instead, it’s best to air out the emotional wounds. Don’t cover them up or avoid them. Face them. Lift them up in prayer. Talk about them with those you can trust, and talk about them with yourself through self-reflection. Because that is how those kinds of wounds heal best.
