If there is one thing everyone struggles with, it's patience. When we want something, we want it now. We don't want to hear the phrase, "Only time will tell..." or "Let time run its course". If there is something we want, we want it with us right at that moment. But as I have gotten older, I realized with time, everything works out.
Patience is really the key to success.
It's funny how we talk about time as if it is a real, and tangible thing, but it's actually a made up thing. Time is human-made, however, it impacts our lives so much. The sun comes up, then goes down, then the moon comes up, then goes down, and the cycle repeats itself again.
With this pattern, we are forced, in a way, to move on from the present day to start the next day. I have learned that each new day is really a new day. As this repetition happens, often without us noticing due to our busy days, we unknowingly give ourselves time to heal. It may come unexpectedly or intentionally, but healing really does come with time.
The hardest feeling to get over is a broken heart.
Broken hearts come in all shapes and sizes, but my heart was recently broken by a 'thing' with someone that didn't work out. Thinking back now, it was honestly no-biggie, but that's because my healing came with time. Broken hearts can fully be recovered with time, although it may seem impossible at the time, as time passes, hearts heal. Minds heal. Bodies heal.
Being healed does not mean you forgot about what broke your heart though. Full recovery is possible even if you keep a memory of that situation or person. But a memory is just a memory.
If you are going through something, be patient and let time heal. Patience is the key to everything. You may want it now, but there might be something better later.
