Capture Your Grief Day 3: Myth

“Time Heals All Wounds”

No it doesn’t.  Today’s topic for the Capture Your Grief project is “myth.”  This is one of the all-time false myths about grief.  It has been two years, six months, and twenty-eight days.   Time marches on and there is nothing you can do about it.  It’s unfair.  My wounds are not healed.  I still miss and hurt for my baby girl.  I am not over it.  I never will be.  Time does not heal all wounds, it only puts more distance between you and your loss.  The pain does weaken over time and it does gets easier to deal with and live with.  But all it takes is a bad day, a memory, and it all comes flooding back.  If it were up to me I would say, “Time does not heal all wounds, it puts a band-aid on it.”
