Geoffrey Chaucer’s poem, Troilus and Criseyde, written in the 1380s contains the phrase: “As tyme hem hurt, a tyme doth hem cure.”
Time heals all wounds! Or so say many over and over again. Certainly time helps women forget the excruciating pain of childbirth. You live it and then at some point consider having another. The exact feeling of pain a dulled memory.
Yet time doesn’t readily heal all wounds. Some somewhat seal to only open up again and fester. Ooze out grief, hate, and tears. Other wounds you freeze up and store away to only it thaw out.
