Febulous Day 14

14. Time really heals all wounds.

Time varies, and is not the same for everyone. Take your time and feel your feels.

I remember when my Ex admitted to cheating on me with his Ex. I remember hating him, and being hurt for the first time. But I couldn’t shake him. I couldn’t get over him. I kept answering his calls, having conversations like it was normal. I remember my best friend telling me, “When you’re ready to let go you will, not because of what I think or anyone else, when you’re ready you will let go..”

I didn’t understand what she meant. I thought I would never get over him or it. That I’ll always revert back to him.

Lesson

Time really does heal wounds. Eventually you are able to just…let it go. Some may take a few days, weeks, or even years. But you will be fine. You need to embrace all your feels. What do I mean by that? You need to go through and accept the stages of grief: DABDA (How I remembered it for Psych class)

  1. Denial — It can’t be true!
  2. Anger — How fcking dare you!
  3. Bargaining — Is it because I did this? Maybe..
  4. Depression — I’m unlovable, no wonder it happened.
  5. Acceptance — Fck that ish!

It may not be within a relationship context but in anything. Time would heal you. You can and will survive this moment. As long as you wake up you have the chance to start over.
