So many people keep telling me I need time to heal from my recent breakup. Why? Who says I need time to heal? I think about cancer and spontaneous remission. Sometimes the body just stops the cancer in its tracks. How does it do this? And why doesn't that happen with everyone?
Perhaps our ideas of healing and the time needed for it come from our beliefs around wounds. What if we didn't see ourselves as broken, hurt or otherwise in need of repair, what would happen then? Would the wounds cease to exist? Do they only arise in our own consciousness?
As I have questioned the beliefs around the religion given to me by my parents, I now question every belief, every opinion, every piece of advice given to me by others. So if you're one of the people who's given me advice lately and I've scoffed, don't take it personally. It has nothing to do with you. Unless, of course, it does.
