Time Does not Equal Healing
I planned to write an article on Gabrielle Union’s visit to LSU, but after going over the notes I had taken, the only statement of her’s I was inspired by was, “Time does not equal healing.” That really hit home for me because we’ve been told our entire lives, time heals all, time heals all, but it doesn’t, not alone at least. You have to make a conscious effort to heal and you have to make a conscious effort to change. So many people base their life of off the concept of time, planning their business ventures, graduation, and even marriage on their age. Don’t wait until you’re 23, 24 etc to act on what it is you already know you want to do. Let go of the false security that tells you you’ll be ready by a certain age and begin working towards it now. Everyday make a conscious effort to do one thing better than you did yesterday. If you’ve gone through a really hurtful break up or lost someone really special to you, don’t think you should be healed based off of a non existent time frame. You are entitled to feel as you do. Instead of longing for the day that you feel completely healed or longing for the day that you get that dreams job, focus on the work you’re putting in now. Live each day as if you are the person you hope to be. What habits do the person you hope to be exude? Whatever they are start to act in those habits. Dress as if you are the teacher you hope to be, conduct networking meetings as you would if you were already in that place of power. Walk in the strength, confidence, and security of the girl who is no longer broken hearted. Whatever you do, don’t wait on time alone to change your situation.
