Heal the wound

Only recently I’ve started growing finger nails. I have long fingers, so I think it looks good. But the problem starts when I scratch, scractttch any small blisters in my skin and make it worse. So to prevent myself from harming my skin, I do either of the following. One. I pretend, and make a conscious effort not to think about it. Two. I apply some medicine on the blistered skin to heal.

But at times, both things don’t work out, and I end up scratching and peeling the skin off. I guess, that’s what most of us do, to make a bad situation worse. We either THINK or TALK about the situation, which is like putting a tooth pick on a wound and digging it, so the wound/hurt is fresh in our minds.

Still wanna dig? or let it heal?

"whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Sometimes letting the wound to heal will do. But some times we have to do something about it. For example a broken relationship, something should be done soon. The longer its broken, the harder to heal. Am i making sense? :)

I do agree. Those were my step 1 ( leave untouched -give time to heal itself )& 2 ( apply medicine - do the necessary to heal it)

the third one is the dangerous, but most used- We dwell on the problem and lament about it. No good ever comes out of it, except the bad becomes worse.
