It Turns Out Time Doesn’t Heal All Wounds

It Turns Out Time Doesn’t Heal All Wounds


If you’re going through a break up right now you probably won’t want to read this.  But then again, go ahead because it’s good advice.

A new study out of Arizona State University found that time doesn’t actually heal all wounds.

  • The researchers found that people can stay depressed for several years or longer after something terrible happens, especially if they just try to distract themselves and live a “normal” life.
  • That can even be dangerous and mess you up to the point where you don’t bounce back and you lose your ability to feel compassion for other people too.
  • The best way for people to move on is to really focus on dealing with what happened, either with a therapist or even just by themselves, and work on things like thinking realistically about the future, regulating their emotions, and being productive.
