From every wound there is a scar, and every scar tells a story.
A story that says:
Healing takes time
Wounds don’t heal the way you want them to, they heal the way they need to.
It takes time for wounds to fade into scars. It takes time for the process of healing to take place.
Give yourself that time. Give time time. Give yourself that grace. Be gentle with your wounds. Be gentle with your heart. Be gentle with yourself.
We deserve to heal because we are supposed to move through our pain, our tragedies, our challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives.
The gift of wounds
By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds – the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.
