Resistance is real. Maybe we resist new foods, ideas, or anything that feels like change. In today’s article, we’ll discuss what resistance is, how to recognize it within ourself, and ways to use it as a stepping stone to self-care.

They don’t cover or heal us, and they leave us open to further injury and infection.
