It creates space for it, but it doesn't erase how those emotions were created. So the pain lingers. Lingers until it doesn't. I know I'm just reframing a brilliant quote, I just can't get over how much the writing speaks to me.
Through my experiences, I've learned that although hurt can feel relieved when it's recognized with words, words don't heal it. Validation gives weight to your emotions.
"I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded; not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night.” -Khaled Hosseini I love this quote from The Kite Runner.
