Crying over your wounds will not heal them any faster. Time needs your help. It’s screaming for you to forgive yourself, whether it takes days, months, or even years of dragging your feet through quicksand, all the way through to acceptance. To closure. To remembering that you don’t have to justify to anyone how you got here. If anything, all they need to know is that you’re still standing, and you don’t plan on falling down any time soon.
