“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
Over time to we try to convince ourselves that everything is alright. The pain or damage will always be there, yet the way deal with it is up to the individual. You will always have that memory, but in some cases your mind hides it from yourself. If when an individual experiences a traumatic experience, sometimes the mind hides that event or details about the event. In some cases time slows done and you remember every little detail. The brain remembers certain things, and it is still unclear exactly how the memory works. Nonetheless, it will never be the same. The individual may grow or become frightened depending on the event.
This quote reminds me of surgery. Individuals get surgery for a variety of reasons, but mainly to improve their life. When you get surgery it provides you with more opportunities in life, which can be related to adversity. The healing process takes time, but you will go back to the point to where you feel ‘normal’. The scar will remain their for years and will never truly disappear, yet you needed that surgery to make your life better. Overall, that surgery may have helped you acquire a new ability or made everyday life easier. You had to wait and deal with the ‘healing process’ allowed your life to become bearable again.
