I have heard this saying all of my life and have found myself telling myself this in order to get through many things. To many, this saying is true; however, in my now older opinion this saying can’t be further from the truth.
It is my opinion that your wounds will never be fully healed. Life truly makes sure of that. Sometimes, life takes every opportunity to throw salt in the wound opening it back up.
Don’t get me wrong, time does help to diminish the sting of the wound, but the scar will always remain as a reminder. The wound might even still be tender and sore because it isn’t completely healed on the inside. We will always be reminded of our wounds and although they may sting less, they still cause some pain and discomfort. How could we ever forget?!
We are human and we can’t always control what our minds go back to. There are things that trigger those memories. It could be a date, a smell, something someone says, looking at tv, etc. Again, how could we ever forget?!
This has nothing to do with forgiveness. This is solely about the fact that we will never forget. No matter how we try to cover it up or camouflage it, our wounds and scars will always be there. We can never forget.
While you are waiting for time to heal your wounds, lick them for as long as you like!!!! Take as much time as you need for the sting to diminish. It will diminish over time, but it will never fully go away! The wounds and scars are a part of you and your lessons learned make you the person you are today!
I must say you are an amazing person, so I thank God for your healing wounds!!! I’m thankful that they aren’t open wounds anymore and you are in your healing process. They may never go away and you may always have a scar, but now you have a story to tell to help someone else who is going through. Thank you for being vulnerable enough to share your wounds and scars. Time might not heal your wounds, but your story just might heal some broken hearts and save some souls. To God be all glory!
I thank God for using my wounds and scars to help others! Time is diminishing the sting, but the memory has empowered and enabled me to help people who have just been wounded as well as those trying to cope with their scars.
Time may not heal all wounds, but it sure has matured me into the woman I am today. I now know how to handle my wounds so I can pass my experiences on!!!
