There are inner things you are wrestling with.
These are counterproductive ideas. They are somehow untrue, or harm you in some way.
You take them in and accept them, as part of your day to day goings on.
They have become part of you, yet when you recognize them for what they are, they get thrust back into you by friends as somehow part of what you are.
These internal scorpions are related to either your physical health, or the health of your most intimate relationships.
You need to identify them, and stop consuming them as something wholesome, like pizza.
Once you do, you will feel clean. Relieved. Freed.
