When you cut too deep, you need a bandage. It will stop the bleeding.
But a bandage is a temporary treatment and you don’t need it.
You need something that will last forever.
A bandage can stop the bleeding but it won’t stop all those thoughts. It won’t stop your suffering. It will heal your cuts but won’t heal you.
I don’t need a bandage. My blood can keep pouring, I know I’ll be recovered only when I don’t have another reason to cut ever again.
