Time and care.

The phrase “time heals all wounds” isn’t totally true.  It should be “time and care heal all wounds.”

An uncared-for wound left to heal on its own never heals correctly.  Scars remain.  There are misalignments in the healing process.  And when that happens, a wound you thought was closed can start hurting you again, and without warning.  At best, its just an irritation.  At worst, it reopens altogether.  Somewhere in between, it festers and spreads to infect previously unaffected areas.

Given time and care, a wound will heal properly.  The proper attention will make certain everything is where it needs to be during the healing process.  Given time and care, a wound will leave no scars and its presence will be undetectable.  There will be proper closure.

Take care of your wounds, folks.
