In life, we all go through some hard and painful events. Many times we look at these events and think that the pain is the hard part. I tend to disagree with that. Here is why I say that.
Although there may a great deal of hurt and pain associated with these events, both physically and emotionally, I think that the hardest part is actually the healing. Don’t get me wrong, the pain can also be quite hard and difficult to get through. There is no denying that at all. It can be anything from the loss or death of a friend, loved one, family member, physical injury, mental or emotional trauma, or a host of any other things.
In my opinion, however, the healing is the hardest part. That is the part that has you learning to live with, and dealing with, the pain. The part of learning how to cope and move on, even though you may never truly forget or be the same. The part of having to live with, in many cases, a life changing event and the effects it may have on your life moving forward. That is the hard part. Pain is temporary, but the healing from it can last long after the pain is actually gone. Some scars and healing may even last a lifetime. Healing is truly the hardest part by far in my opinion.
