One of the hardest things that you can do is heal from any trauma and pain. This requires a lot of self-reflection, acceptance of what happened, and having to relive the pain. This is what you avoid when you are taking up bad habits. In some cases, addiction can be the result of avoiding pain (as well as genetics).
But not everyone is ready to heal from any past trauma and pain at a certain time. Some may never be ready to heal. Are you ready? The fact that you are reading this is indicative that you are at the very least looking into it. Healing is also a very long process that can potentially take a lifetime. This does not mean you would not be able to move forward at all while you are still healing. You most definitely can, but it will be something you would have to work on for life.
5 Healing Quotes That Can Make A Difference
Here are 5 healing quotes to live by that can make a difference.
1. “The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it…”
― Nicholas Sparks, At First Sight
This quote basically tells you that the very first feeling you experienced when you had your heart broken is what you need to revisit in order to start your healing process. It is easy to run away from, but in order to heal, you need to delve into it which will not be comfortable.
2. “They say time heals all wounds, but that presumes the source of the grief is finite”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince
Do you agree that time really heals wounds? Yes and no. In time, you begin to compartmentalize the pain you felt when the heartbreaking thing happened to you that caused you to grieve. However, over time, you learn to live with it even though the pain is still with you. But once you are dealing with a reminder such as many holidays, or encountering a situation that reminds you of the pain you had endured, it feels just a raw as when it happened.
3. “Hearts are breakable,” Isabelle said. “And I think even when you heal, you’re never what you were before”.”
― Cassandra Clare, City of Fallen Angels
Do you think there is truth to this quote? Absolutely. After going through a painful life-altering experience, you will never be the same even if you have learned to live with it and move forward. You are living a new normal.
4. “Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
― David Richo
This quote basically says to you that the pain you endure opens up parts of you that you never thought you had. That can involve compassion, empathy, and spirituality.
5. “The question is not how to get cured, but how to live.”
― Joseph Conrad
This quote basically tells you that again, you may never be the same after enduring such pain and grief. Part of healing is finding a new normal which is what this brings out.
