"Time Heals all wounds"

Post by Donald Williams on Thu Jul 30, 2009 5:30 pm

I was told these exact words on a myriad of occasions throughout the last year, I never really believed it then, and with deeper thought upon the matter I realized I will never believe those words.


I think the better phrase would be, "Time buries all wounds" because there are a wide variety of issues and experiences I've had in the past that can come unraveled with painful events in the present. Issues never resolved remain incomplete even if it is indeed buried deep down inside.


On somber days I often find the pain of events that happened years ago can rise up within me. Even though this issue was buried, it's still remains an unresolved and painful issue to this day.


I talked to my mother about this yesterday and she had a similar opinion on the matter. When my mine delved into the issue today, I realized I would love to see what the opinions on this subject are from the fine people of this forum.

Ah, what an interesting topic.

First of all, I never like to use the word "all." That said, I'm not sure if time necessarily "heals," perhaps "buries" is more accurate.

Some wounds simply were never as deep as we made them to be, so given weeks or years, their pains are alleviated as we mature.

I think the phrase should be time heals some wounds, worsens others.

It heals some..maybe the relevance of the wound to everyday life.


But never erases it.

All terms and phrases are subjective. You can look at it how ever you want, word it how ever you wish, and interpret it how ever you want to interpret it.

My interpretation of this phrase is that time can cause some wounds to scar, meaning that eventually they lose relevance and eventually you're going to forget it's even there. Time can also warp our perception of how we view these wounds, for better or worse. I do believe that time, given its natural course, can "heal" SOME wounds to a CERTAIN degree.
