Give Time Time

Have you ever thought about the "truth value" of cliches?

I have to believe that a saying that has stood the test of time must have had some value or it wouldn't have survived.

So why don't we give them the honor they deserve? Maybe because, as one saying goes, "Familiarity breeds contempt." Maybe what we have to do is look at old sayings with new eyes.

Think about this one: "Time heals all wounds."

Believe me, I have been in some bad places in my life. I won't bore you with my sad story, but suffice to say I have suffered physical, emotional, social, and financial breakdowns at various times in my life (and, once, several of those simultaneously).

And now here I am, healthy, happy, well-loved, and secure.

To what do I attribute my success?

Time.

Everything changes; the Wheel of Fortune goes around. And, in time, chances are whatever is causing distress will pass, and the wounds will heal.

Just hang on. Give time time.

You'll be happier (in time).
