It is nice to believe that time heals all wounds, especially at times of grief, loss or disappointment. However, at the very moment of experiencing grief, loss or disappointment, those comforting words may be heard as sounding almost callous and insensitive, whether or not the intent is there. Because at our time of grief or loss or disappointment, we feel as though our broken hearts will never heal.

TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS

By Al Garcia

It is nice to believe that time heals all wounds, especially at times of grief, loss or disappointment.  However, at the very moment of experiencing grief, loss or disappointment, those comforting words may be heard as sounding almost callous and insensitive, whether or not the intent is there.  Because at our time of grief or loss or disappointment, we feel as though our broken hearts will never heal.

However, we must understand that the saying “Time heals all wounds,” is said to comfort and to reassure.  It is said to acknowledge that sorrow is indeed a long and arduous journey of the body and the mind, and that discovering simple truths about ourselves over time, may bring some comfort along the way to acceptance of our loss. 

You may be crying today.  You may even be lashing out and recoiling in fear and even some distress.  For even if expected, the pain of actual loss shocks and bewilders us all.  And like those of us who have experienced the awfulness and loneliness of losing someone near and dear, it is sometimes difficult to acknowledge or admit to anyone how much it hurts inside, and how much we need to hear words of solace and feel a human touch. 

One must remember through these times, that just as there is time to mourn and grief and hurt, there will also be a time to heal and mend our broken hearts.  We must give time a chance to help ease the pain.  We must give time a chance to search and find the memories that were made and left behind.

Time heals all wounds, including a broken heart.  Just give it time.
