Take Your Time To Heal


“Wounds don’t heal the way you want them to, they heal the way they need to. It takes time for wounds to fade into scars. It takes time for the process of healing to take place.
Give yourself that time. Give yourself that grace. Be gentle with your wounds. Be gentle with your heart. You deserve to heal. You have a right to know peace in your skin.”
Dele Olanubi

Last night while I was laying in bed, it burdened me that it is taking me so long to heal from a heartbreak that began 3 years ago. Sometimes I need to remind myself to be kind to heart, to have grace for myself and my journey of healing. Never mind if people tell you, ‘Let it go,’ or if they ask, ‘Shouldn’t you be over this by now?’ I don’t believe that your healing runs on people’s schedules. It may take you 3 months, or it may take you 3 years – and that’s all more than okay. Give yourself the time to grieve, let your heart be tender and learn to slowly but surely say goodbye – no matter how long it may take you.
