Have you heard the phrase, “Time heals all wounds.” Some people believe this phrase is a catchall for grief‚ that in time, the anger, depression, guilt, or regret will just go away.
This is simply not true. The point here is that not all wounds are meant to heal with time.
It hurts to lose someone we love. That loss shapes and defines who we are, and it never really goes away. Instead, we carry it with us as we move forward into the next chapter of our lives, and what helps us heal is what we do with our time after they’ve passed.
Whether it is finishing a project your loved one was working on or volunteering at their favorite charity, there are ways to fill up your time that can help you cope.
