“But I’ve realized healing doesn’t happen overnight.”
After years — a lifetime — I wonder if I’ll ever see my scars heal over. I wonder if time is my answer. I wonder if it’s even a possibility. If these wounds in my soul will ever find a reprieve from the pain. But I’ve realized healing doesn’t happen overnight.
Two steps forward. One step back. One day at a time. Slowly. With care. And one day, I’ll realize I’m not so broken any more.
