band-aid.

Home, Thoughts

Band-aids are meant to make everything better, to keep the wound safe until it heals. Band-aids are great for physical damage like a cut or a scrape but what about emotional damage. People are emotionally wounded everyday and there is no simple solution like a band-aid to make to make them feel better.

A cut can heal in a matter of days but how long does it take for someone to overcome the loss of a loved one. The world seems to treat physical health as a more serious matter than mental health. As humans we shame those who have mental health issues and hide our own out of fear of judgement. To be healthy, one must take care of their body and mind and we should be treating both these situations as equals.
