We often hear that Time heals all wounds. It's a misconception, in my view. Some wounds can be very deep and way beyond any healing process. Most of the wounds, given enough time, turn into scars. And the pain lessens, but it never goes away. Somewhere deep inside, we must feel it, still alive and afresh! Never walk away from your innermost feelings, no matter how painful those may be; because that's the reality of life we must accept and manage effectively. Good luck, my friend!
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

We often say"Forgive and Forget." That's the correct sequence IMHO. If you want to forget someone or some unpleasant event, you must first forgive. Forgiveness is the precursor to Forgetting. If you don't forgive, you'll never forget, and that someone or that unpleasant event will stay with you, carved inside your heart and deep in your mind. Like a magma chamber of a volcano, you will then embody the hot burning lava of hate and volcanic ashes of bad memories. So to move on with life, you ought to learn to forgive, first and foremost, even the worst people round you. The stream of life would then flow smoothly and seamlessly - onwards and upwards.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

We only seem to learn from Life that Life doesn't matter so much as it seemed to do -- it's not so burningly important, after all, what happens.

– D. H. Lawrence

– Charles Kingsley
