Stop Telling People Time Heals All Wounds

My mother died at 40 years old, back when I was 18. One thing I heard the most was that “time heals all wounds.” It didn’t sit well with me then, or when I heard it again when my brother-in-law, father, and grandfather also passed away.

When my baby niece left this earth at five days old, I heard it again. However, this time I fought the urge to tell my sister that “time heals all wounds.” Yet, it just seems like a blanket phrase that those of us wanting to help our loved ones often say.

While I don’t feel the same as I did the day each of those people died, I wouldn’t say that time has healed me. Should you stop telling people that time heals all wounds?
