Some healing leaves scars. It’s up to us whether we want to pick at them and keep re-opening the wound. We must make the decision who is the boss. Our mind? Our spirit? Our feelings? You can tell your feelings to ‘shut up’ you know. It might take 20, 50, 1,000 times but they will shut up when you make your mind up that feelings are not your boss. ~ Elaine Wiebe
Sick and tired of people saying “Get Over it”, “Move on”, “Put it Behind You” etc. I know they mean well, but they have no idea how much she hurt me. I will heal and love again, in my own time and with the right person. Live in Hope and God’s Grace. ~ Ed Skinner
When people say those things to you, they haven’t been where you are, gone through what you did. It’s their own discomfort they are experiencing and thinking about. They are trying in their own way to help, but those are the things at the top of the list of wrong things to say. Sometimes just being with you and not saying anything is more helpful. You will heal in your own time. ~ Cheryl Bibby
Sometimes it takes years. You never get over it. You just learn to live with it.
You shouldn’t start a relationship when you aren’t fully healed because you only end up hurting the other person. ~ Sarah Pitman
