Time doesn't heal ALL.


They say time heals all wounds?.

Define heal? Is that the same as what it was before? Untouched and unharmed? Are there scars, or do they fade with time? If the same wound is hacked at over and over in the same spot, does time still heal all?

Let me burst that bubble and let the water shimmer around feet.

Time heals nothing. It hardens, it strengthens, it teaches. Who gave time the ultimate power of healing? Of all things wounds. Time only teased my wounds. Opened them to have thdm close again. Seasoned them with salt whenever  they dried. That’s what time does. Vintictive  and sly, we can’t stop him. He slips through our fingers like a thief through the valley.

It goes on. Time goes on, and things can’t be changed, words can’t be unspoken, actions can’t be undone. Cruel as he is, time goes on. It doesn’t heal, it teaches to accept. When we don’t listen, he’ll toy with you. And you’ll expect him to heal all wounds, that time himself reopened. You have to accept that your wound is there, recognise why it’s there, and let the scars sink deep.

No mercy, he doesn’t even give us the chance to go back. Regret is what he gifts us instead of a chance to redo a mistake. Time heals all they say.

Time heals nothing. Years pass, and I watch the seasons change before me. I grow older, and my mind grows stronger. My hearts grows harder, and my tears run slower. Yet I’m not healed.

It is free, it is priceless, you can own it, and spend it at your own cause. Once it is lost, it can NEVER be given back. But it doesn’t heal.

I am not healed.

Love, Always,

Spread The Love

    Innocently scrolling through my reader…then this, honesty. Time doesn’t heal anything, it only allows us to put things in some sort of perspective. I’ve had this on mind lately. This is beautiful. Thank you for writing this.

    You’re right. Time does not heal all wounds.

    And they say that whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

    I’m not sure about that one, either.

    What do we learn from our wounds? How can we heal a broken heart? How do we go on, without becoming bitter?

    I don’t know the answers to these questions. I just try to keep on surviving somehow, and most days I don’t know how I’m going to get through that day. I pull my hat down in hopes it will hide the tears. Most days I don’t go out, and when I do, it’s only to buy food, necessities. Sometimes I don’t eat because I can’t face the ordeal of going out.

    And of course here in the States there’s pig meat everywhere, makes me sick. It’s like a symbol of the piggish mentality. Why should that affect me so deeply?

    I hear your pain, and I want you to know that this Jewish woman loves you from afar, and sends you healing prayers from my heart.

    I don’t think time, by itself heals. Time gives us distance. It allows us to look at the cause of our pain, and change our perspective. 8 years out of a long abusive marriage, my life is wonderful now. It took time and patience, a lot of work on myself, and forgiveness. I learned that holding on to pain and anger is like taking poison and thinking the other guy is gonna die. I discovered that as long as I was angry, or hurt, by him, he still controlled me. So I forgave him, and took back my power. Only time and distance got me to a place where I could do that. I hope you can get past your pain, and discover what you will do with the rest of your one and precious life.

    A wound is different from a scar. A wound is raw, painful and needing care to make it heal. I am talking literally wounds on our skin. And of course there are wounds of our emotion and heart. I beg to disagree that time does heal wounds depending on the treatment given to the wound. If a wound is not treated with the right drugs,antiseptic and so on,it can degenerate to a life threatening wound. But if the right treatment is applied Time does heal wounds. It does this by taking away that sharp pain, the bitterness, the fear. Scars are a reminder of wounds that once was but our scars should not stop us from moving on to enjoy the best of our lives that still lay ahead. Time gives us new hopes, new friends, new love, new achievements and successes in our stories. Time also helps us to help other wounded persons we meet along the way. Time is not suppose to make us forget that we ever had the pain but to remember that the pain no longer needs to sting. That is a choice… We all have our wounds but time can be a big healer as we get the right treatment, let go and move on. I can’t claim to know your pain, but i can tell you that i have had a share of my own pains and it is always the not letting go that makes it hard. If a situation or someone wants to keep opening the wound on your scar then you can do something about it. Say No, Stop it and move on. What has worked for me majorly is my FAITH. I can always take my pains, wounds to my heavenly father who knows how to best Heal me.
