Time cools, time clarifies; no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours.
Mark Twain US humorist, novelist, short story author, & wit (1835 - 1910)
Time is a productive friend or a wasteful enemy, however we choose to implement it. I lost years, yet now I view with joy every moment I have left instead of regretting all that I can never recall.
Time and space are close cousins; the one grants the other to all who agree to let nature take its course and every emotion have its due. Space protects us from further wounding, while time heals whatever we do not continue to pick at. Natural law can rule here, or we can try to control it. We cannot hope to succeed, but humans are stubborn animals.
Fix what can be reached from where you are then let time handle the rest. Do not feed agony, let it die a natural death of starvation. We are not meant to linger overlong in a hopeless state or we just become an extension of it. Remember that time will not stand still while you struggle to decide which way to jump to get off the track you stand on. It will blow its whistle then barrel over you like a runaway train. Jump on board and ride while you still possess a ticket.
