Time doesn't heal as much as awareness does. I remember dating a guy that had been divorced for 10 years and yet he carried so much anger and hurt. I thought he would have been healed by now with the 10 years of processing but what I learned as we grew close– he just became less aware of how much he protected the narrative in his hurt. The lack of awareness hindered his healing. That's so easy to do. When we live in a narrative and become less aware of our ownership in our hurt, we become stunted in our healing. May we know that even with the pain of our awareness that we are worth loving.
