No. 447 / Give yourself some time.
Time heals all wounds, but it doesn’t erase the scars. Time heals all wounds, but it doesn’t eradicate the pain. Time heals all wounds, but, still, you’ve been wounded. But, in time, you teach yourself to see that living with a wound is evidence that you are alive. In time, you teach yourself to face that life, undistracted by the pain. In time, you teach yourself to recognize the scar as just a place you won’t be hurt again. It’s not that you are healed by time, but that, in time, you learn to heal yourself.

GFDA is the bearer of messages from your own heart. What we say is nothing new, we simply put things in a way that you can’t ignore.
From truth, purpose; from purpose, fulfillment. The truth is that this life is a struggle, it’s a contest. Your purpose is to use up every bit of your potential participating in life. You are called to face a challenge. Accept it with dignity. From contending—perhaps to be injured, certain to be hurt—you will find a respect for yourself that can be attained nowhere else. From enduring the struggle, you will learn the true value of compassion and a proper use of your power.
These things cannot be given, they must be earned. We offer you this, and nothing more: the light of old wisdom to guide your steps, and the fruits of our experience to nourish you on your journey.
Happiness isn’t a reward. Strength isn’t gained without effort. Love isn’t something you get from someone else. Life is made bearable in the bearing of it. The meaning of life reveals itself when you stop looking for it and start living with sincerity. Fulfillment will come at last when you have given all that you have.
We want that for you.
