Musings: On Pain Begetting Pain, On Healing Begetting Healing

Just because we may be doing our best, doesn’t mean that we don’t shake shrapnel from our skin now and again which may embed itself in the flesh of those nearest to us. Shedding pain doesn’t make us villains, but the more pain that we try to shove out of ourselves by force, the more pain we are likely to cause, both in re-opening our own wounds and in creating new injuries for others. Even those of us with zero malicious intent can be very harmful.
