In the harsh landscape of pain, we often find ourselves lost, with the world spinning around us in disorienting circles. It's like a storm that rages within, threatening to tear us apart, to shatter the fragile mosaic of our existence. Yet, amid this maelstrom, there's a constant, a friend that never leaves - time. Time, the ceaseless tick-tock that patiently weaves the threads of healing into our lives. It stands beside us, quietly, day by day, whispering reassurances that it will get easier, that it will hurt less. It's not a quick fix, nor a magic wand. It's the soft lullaby that sings us through the dark nights and brings us towards the dawn. Time, in its infinite wisdom, becomes the balm for our wounds, the restorer of our broken pieces, guiding us gently into the arms of a future where we're stronger than before.
LETTER TO A FRIEND WHO IS GOING THROUGH A ROUGH TIME:
In the silent spaces between words, I feel the depth of your pain and it saddens me to see you hurting. I wish I could offer you a remedy, a balm, an antidote to ease your suffering instantly. But life has taught me, and so many before us, that there's a gentle healer who works in quiet whispers - and that is time.
Pain is tough, indeed, yet time is the friend that helps us bear it, day by day, until it hurts less. Like a patient gardener, it helps us grow through what we go through, nurturing us through each sunrise and sunset. I cannot promise immediate relief, my dear friend, but I can assure you that, with time, the weight you carry will lighten.
I'm here for you, in the tick-tock of time, through the storm and the calm that follows. Together, we will face each new day until they're brighter than the last.
With all my love,
