The American actor, Mehcad Brooks, once said, “Time heals everything. Time corrects everything. Time is the solution to every problem, I believe.” But, are those statements true? Does time really heal and correct everything? It would be nice if it did but, unfortunately, those statements do not seem to be accurate in some situations.
Through the years, I have talked to many women who have experienced one or multiple abortions some 30, 40, even 50 years ago, and still find themselves struggling with the decision they made decades ago! They tell me stories about their lives, how they pushed aside the difficult feelings associated with the abortions and tried to go on with their lives. Most thought time would heal. But, later on, those feelings resurfaced in different ways and they found themselves angry, bitter, depressed, and struggling to cope. In their pain, some turned to substances to suppress it, some to pursuing different relationships hoping for fulfillment instead of emptiness, and some practiced self-harm and found themselves in a deep depression.
So, how do you change course and heal from the trauma abortion caused in your life, even decades later? Well, it can help to reach out to others who can provide a safe, welcoming, and compassionate environment for you. A place where you can work through the difficult feelings and experience resolution and healing.
