These days, looking at something from a few years back brings a notion. Don’t we wish we could have told ourselves then… That everything would work out? That our hearts would mend? Feelings would fade and whatever problem seemed to cloud our every day, would eventually pass and the sun would one day shine again.
Today, we still have problems. School assignments, boyfriends, family or work. Whatever it is, we’ve all been there. All these problems scare us each day and we spend countless hours worrying over them, when in reality –several days, weeks or years from now it will be a washed out memory. So the point is. Everything will pass. It always does. At the time, it feels like there is no way you could possibly ever be happy again, and that there is nothing to look forward to but time really is the healer and time really does mend our problems.
When you next collapse on your bed in a wave of tears, or walk into the doors of school or work, wishing you could fall into a deep hole and never resurface, remind yourself that the emotion that you feel is only temporary. Even at your lowest point when giving up seems like the only realistic option, just remember. Everything passes, including time.
