Time heals almost everything, give time the time it needs!
All to often we expect to bounce back from hardships way too quickly. We do not allow ourselves enough time to heal. Many of us are too critical and way to quick to judge, especially when we look at ourselves.
Instead of looking at hardships in ones life being unfair. Rather look at it as a lesson. A lesson is something we learn from. Everything we learn from improves us. We grow and from this growth we experience a happier version of ourselves!
Time heals almost everything
Time is the great healer and I have experienced this for myself, more than once. In fact, many times in my life.
Often we need to live into the change. Just as a caterpillar goes through the process from cocoon to butterfly! We need to first understand what has taken place. When emotions are involved, this clouds reason. Emotions need to settle and you need to clear you mind from emotional distractions. Very similar to clouds clearing from the sky to allow the sun to shine through, just like this meme. 🙂
So the period of dealing with our emotions, understanding and processing is like that of the butterfly cocoon analogy. This takes time, it cannot be sped up! If we do not understand what is taking place or bottle down our emotions, it only takes longer. This type of lesson can take a lifetime for some.
In other situations, we just need enough time to go by in our lives for hurtful memories to be replaced by newer, happier memories. And that alone, only time can do.
So, in closing. Allow yourself the time that you need in order to heal, to grow, to experience the lessons and be grateful for the outcome. A better version of yourself, from caterpillar to butterfly!
P.S. Keep in mind that others might have this same opinion of you, so stay humble. For those that have been truly hurt by others, then own this meme!
