Do you think that time heals all wounds? Why or why not?
Too subjective. Depends on the wound. Depends on the person.
Personally, I wish it were that simple, but I’m too busy holding grudges and adding people to my shit-list (those whom I would take great delight in their total and utter downfall). However, that list isn’t as long as people would perceive it to be, there’s really only a handful of key people on there.
I would love for time to be able to heal my wounds, but when the wounds are so deep and so scarring, how can you just ignore that and let it go? I know that it’s unhealthy to hold on to the past, but those permanent scars are what test us and make us who we are – whether it results in us being stronger or weaker, depending on how we handle the issue.
For me personally, no, time certainly doesn’t heal old wounds because I just can’t seem to let go. I want to be able to, and in some cases I’ve really tried to, but there’s just something inside me, inside my crazy random brain that just won’t let it happen. It’s kind of like a progress bar… I’ll try my hardest to let go, and get to about 95%, and then there’s still that last 5% remaining and my brain goes HA! HA! JUST KIDDING!! YOU’RE NOT FORGETTING ANYTHING!! EVER!! and I’m like SHUT UP BRAIN!!
And of course there are some wounds that are just so deep, they simply never heal. They might get filled with scar-tissue, but they’re always there.
