Sometimes things feel wonderful just like a newly painted nail. And then shit happens.
Polish wears off slowly. If you are going to cover it with a coat of new color over the old one and not ready to clean the old trace and get a closure, you my friend will face a hard time scrubbing your nail until you bleed.
So face it. When you find things are falling apart, get your shit together, clean it and start afresh. Don't hide things forever because in the end when you finally decide to go clean, you will be forced to deal the past mistakes all over again
What we resist will persist..
