They say time heals all wounds. Is that really true? For me, I don’t think so. However, I’ve never been hurt like this.
Today, I reached out to an old friend who I also dated and friend requested him on Facebook. It was the only avenue I could reach out to him as I don’t have his e-mail address, phone number, or a location as to where he is living at the moment.
Through past romantic relationships and friendships that had its’ expiration date, I really do wonder if time does heal all wounds. In the past, it would hurt for a few months then anger would set it then you let go of what you thought was supposed to happen to embrace the life God planned out for you. However, this time around the hurt isn’t going away, but the anger want away a long time ago. My heart is literally broken into two pieces and nothing can put them back together. I ask and pray to God daily asking for strength and help to heal my broken heart. Yet, the only pray he answered was the strength part. I guess the healing isn’t supposed to happen at the very moment.
Is He helping me somehow because He knows the ex will be coming back into my life soon? Is He helping me by being an inspiration to someone else that I don’t know or is He preparing me for something bigger and/or better that will happen to me? I don’t know, but I wish I did know! What bigger/better thing could it be, if anything at all?
Time heals the acute pain of the wound that was caused to your heart, but to really heal from the wound is to do what counselors call ‘inner work’. When we are by ourselves as individuals we take time to work on ourselves in areas of our life that we know need to be worked on. I’m currently working on my bedtime schedule by going to bed before 10pm and waking up by 7am. I am also on working on going to the gym 5 to 6 days a week. If I can’t go to the gym, then I take a 30 minute walk outside. I’m also working on my career. I’m studying for the NCE, so I can be a certified counselor by Spring 2016. Also, having two part time counseling jobs where I can get the work experience is great too! This way by Summer 2016 I can start applying for full time gigs in the counseling field. Hopefully, with benefits too!
Doing this has helped my heart heal somewhat. Doing this combined with courage and honesty not only to yourself, but to others will help tremendously in the long run! I’m still trying to figure out how the courage and honesty will help me. I’m guessing by being honest to yourself and figuring out what you need to work on in terms of your behavior/personality…? Who knows!?
To answer the question, ‘does time heal all wounds?’ I think, yes. However, it will never be on your schedule, but on God’s schedule. He created you, He knows your past, present, and future, He knows what actions you will take, and any dark secrets, worries, or hurt that is hidden away in that closet filled with the rest of the skeletons. Once God is ready to heal your heart completely, He will. After He is finished with you, you’ll become a beautiful piece of art, a one of a kind piece of artwork and you’ll be radiant from head to toe!
