“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 ~
I think there is a reason the pain never completely disappears.
It’s there to remind us of the poor choice or experience.
It reminds us that there is good and bad, happy and sad, joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain…
Those moments can guide us to a happier life if we remain teachable and humble.
Or they will alert us to the fact that we’ve traveled the same path before and found unhappiness, pain and sorrow.
How we choose to react and respond to the pain is entirely our choice.
