“The Scars Remain Tender”

The scars remain tender. Never, ever healed, but only lightly scabbed over. Time does not heal all wounds, but only allows us to adapt, if we can, to a life that is forever altered. Some wounds are like physical disabilities that will never heal, but can only be compensated for, adapted to.
Neil Peart

Is there a way in which you have changed since the death of you loved one that feels like a disability?  How have you adapted?

    I am dealing with the suicide of one of my best friends a few days ago. I appreciate the honesty of this post – time doesn’t necessarily “heal” makes sense to me. I’m not sure how I will adapt, but this gives me hope that I can.
