Many of us have heard the saying, “time heals all wounds.”
Do you have wounds that have not healed over time? It is a myth that time alone will take care of grief. Many are waiting a very long time to find happiness again.
You are not alone.
The fact is time is not enough to complete the grieving process. There are specific steps that are required for your heart to recover from tragedy and loss so you can find happiness again.
Some people go through some of the steps of grief recovery over time, but rarely do people go through all of the steps for significant losses in their lives. When grief is incomplete it restricts energy and hinders us from living the abundant, joyful life we long for.
I invite you to read more about how the stages of grief we take for granted, are more of a myth than a reality. The stages model can actually hinder your recovery.
Time alone does not heal wounds of the heart. These stages of grief models suggest that if you just wait long enough, you will move through all the stages until you are healed. This leads to months and years of unnecessary heartache and disappointment.
