sometimes painful⠀ to pull the thorns from⠀ inside your bony cage⠀ and interrupt⠀ white space
Another one on the border of "climbing related" and "personal." If climbing is some form of personal expression for you, then you probably wrestle with this idea as well. Putting aside things like fear, ego, and fixation can be like pulling thorns from inside your skeleton, but when you can push through your comfort zone, amazing things can happen. Maybe you'll do or say something you need to without fear of interruption, get on a route that you may not have previously considered, or just have fun without worrying about falling or sending.
