You probably know by now that if you keep picking on your wounds it would take longer for them to heal. This is also true with figurative wounds. You need to acknowledge their presence, feel their pain, apply some balm or antiseptic, and then move on. The critical part is when they're about to heal, you have to keep yourself from touching them and sometimes risk opening them again. Scars are fine, scars are great. Because they are markers you can be proud of. But don't pick at old wounds, they're the worst kind of wounds to pay attention to.
