You’re Deserving

“Wounds don’t heal the way you want them to, they heal the way they need to. It takes time for wounds to fade into scars. It takes time for the process of healing to take place. Give yourself that time. Give yourself that grace. Be gentle with your wounds. Be gentle with your heart. You deserve to heal.”
– Dele Olanubi

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got while I was healing, was from a sorority sister. She wrote me a card and said, “give yourself the gift of time to heal in the way you need.” To this day, that piece of advice is one I give to others going through their own struggle. Everyone will think they know when you should “be better” and put the pieces back together. BUT your process is no one’s business, it’s yours to mold and rise up from in whatever capacity you choose. As you heal, you will learn that the journey takes unexpected turns you could have never foreseen, so allow time to charter its own course. Don’t force what is not ready to come to fruition. Don’t stress because things aren’t changing fast enough. Take off the pressure and be gentle, because as the quote says, you deserve to heal.
