The loss

The idea that time heals all wounds is often given to people who are going through a difficult time in an effort to make them feel better. Behind it is an assumption and expectation that given enough time, the pain of a hurtful experience will fade away. Unfortunately, that’s just not the case. If time were the cure-all for emotional pain, then everyone who has ever experienced emotional distress would eventually heal.

That’s why “let time heal your wounds” and phrases like it are a well-intentioned piece of advice, but might actually be the worst advice for anyone trying to heal from their emotional pain and regain their happiness. For some people, time may bring a sense of closure and help them to heal. But for others, time can actually bring up fresh wounds and old memories that continue to cause pain.

To heal from our emotional wounds, we first need to acknowledge that time is not the solution. Emotional healing is a much more complex and involved process that requires more than just the passage of time. Wounds that are deeply rooted in our emotions, such as the loss of a loved one or a hurtful relationship experience, can’t be healed just by the passage of time.

Instead, we need to put active effort into healing ourselves, which may involve seeking therapy, practicing self-care, simply talking to people we love, and/or finding healthy ways to cope with our emotions. Overcoming emotional pain takes time and effort, and a whole lot of strength and resilience.

We also need to stop ignoring or suppressing our emotional wounds, which can lead to ongoing feelings of hurt, anger, and anxiety, and even contribute to us developing even more severe mental or physical health issues.

In that sense, it helps to identify and confront the source of our pain. This may involve exploring our past experiences, traumas, and unresolved issues, and acknowledging and processing the emotions associated with them.

Sure, time can make our wounds less raw, but it’s not the cure for emotional pain. It’s important to be patient with yourself, seek help if you need it, and remember that it’s absolutely okay if you don’t feel better immediately. Healing is a journey, not a destination.
