Time heals all wounds
Although I have heard this said many times in the past and even believed it off and on over the years, I now believe it can be true.
The key to all healing is my opinion is time and of course more importantly forgiveness.
Forgiveness for others and forgiveness for yourself.
My mom passed away exactly a year ago today. To be truthful at the time of her death I was still reeling from more devastating issues in my life and found it hard to even deal with her death. 4 months later my mom in law passed away and again I was still dealing with earlier devastating issues so again found it hard to deal with her death and grieve the loss of both my mother and mother in law. I wondered if I would ever heal from all the hurt that I had to go through in the past 18 months. Well, happily today I can say YES I do believe time helps us heal from the hurt of the past.
Living life one day at a time and having a spiritual life is not the only important but the only way this would be possible.
With time, I think we can learn to understand more about ourselves and how to handle these difficult situations.
Forgiveness is the key to healing but as time goes on, it is time that helps ease the pain.
When you can tell the story and it doesn’t bring up any pain you know it is healed.
Right here, right now I will reflect on the past 18 months with gratitude and know that with time and forgiveness I am healing, one day at a time.
