Do You Believe That Time Heals All Wounds?

Not really, I mean if you lose an arm it's not like it's going to grow back.

My wife just got sent on a deployment to iraq, we have a 16 month old baby girl, and she just informed me she likes someone else who she is deploying with so were basically seperated right now. Dont think I will ever truley heal from this wound, but I will learn to cope. Life is a mystery, we can truely never know what will happen next. I just hope I get to live mine long enough and full enough, if I can wounds wont matter much...

oh yes definitely... but of course if the wound is too deep, there's the scar that wouldn't go away right?

I believe time plays a role in healing wounds, but also it all depends on how well your able to cope with it. For example, if a loved one dies, some ppl may never heal no matter how much time passes, but if your able to cope with it, and can stay focused and look ahead, than it sure helps. Don't dwell on things too long.

Time may heal the wounds but it doesn't make everything be back like how it was before.=)

If I get my penis amputated by some deranged fellow human.

Would I be able to jerk it off once again? D:

It's not that time is able to heal the wound, but it gives you time to think about the situation
in those moments you calm down and are able to analyze the situation

If it's a bad wound or memory you'll find ways to cope with it as time flows by

Coping - The psychological definition of coping is the process of managing taxing circumstances, expending effort to solve personal and interpersonal problems, and seeking to master, minimize, reduce or tolerate stress or conflict. Weiten, W., & Lloyd, M. A. (2006) Psychology Applied to Modern Life.

That definition, compared to the auther's original question which was:



Leads me to my previous statement! But let me clarify: No amount of coping will ever heal the wounds of losing someone precious, no matter how much time passes.... Yes you can continue living with the pain - but thats only because you're forced to do so, and so coping becomes a necessity to living - No matter how much time passes, the pain will remain!

lol, i like it!!! ^-^ says exactly wat i want it to say. You sure did your research. ^-^
My point was that coping can always come in handy. I never said the pain won't disappear.
btw, you are not forced to live with the pain, you have a choice.
Many infact, you can commit suicide as you see fit, forget about it and repress the situation feelings and so forth.
Take out your misery on something else, displacement and so forth.
In a way coping is a defense mechanisim. You can look that up if you like. ^-^

Only if you let it, otherwise you can still hold some of that grudge/guilt.

Nah no need, only looked it up because I was unsure of what the word exactly meant ;)

But still, suicide is not an option! Understand that death solves nothing...
Repression of feelings will ultimately either lead to your own demise (be that death or jail), or lead to a break-down!

That coupled together with the fact that both suicide and repression of feelings will in fact lead to you forgetting that precious someone - and that is almost worse then death - for it is the duty of those loved ones who are still alive, to be a living witness of those who are dead. For if they do not do so, in the end it would be as if said loved one never even existed.... And that is wrong!

But yes, you are right that there is still a choice.... although the majority of these choices are wrong they are indeed there!

But as Charles Kingsley once said:


Charles Kingsley:

There are two freedoms - the false, where a man is free to do what he likes; the true, where he is free to do what he ought.


Which in my opinion leads me to believe that there in fact is only one true, viable, right choice in this matter! The rest are merely diversions...
