Forgetting about our mistakes and our wounds isn't enough to make them disappear.
.. The wounds of the past and the scars of the present don't disfigure me in your eyes - because you know the price I pay for loving you..
Our deepest wounds surround our greatest gifts.
Time heals even the deepest wounds.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will always hurt me. Bones mend and become actually stronger in the very place they were broken and where they have knitted up; mental wounds can grind and ooze for decades and be re-opened by the quietest whisper.
