Time Heals All Wounds?

30 January 2013

“It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” - Rose Kennedy

This is certainly true for me. The chapter leader of my support group told me that the 3rd year is considered by some to be the hardest. For me, the numbness and bargaining had worn of by this time. I had begun to be aware that some of my relationships were most likely irreparable. My original personality still has not returned but there's something in its place that I appreciate. I'm less worried about making other people happy and more concerned with my closest relationships. I spend less time socializing and more time in closeness - especially with my grandsons who live close by.
