    As wise man once said, "Time rights many wrongs... Time is a great healer. Time and tide wait for none, time once lost cannot be recalled."

    no, not usually.

    My father thinks it is, though. That's probably his favorite saying because he thinks it means that he never has to apologize!

    Do you think time is a great healer? No. It's effects take too long, depending on the individual's perspective/perception and understanding(wisdom).

    I think it helps you forget somewhat, but you can can always have wounds that can reopen

    Time will heal, but only when used wisely. like anything you have to actually make an effort to heal. too many people hide from their problems. If you hide it will always haunt you later.

    By working to solve the problem, and learning how to heal yourself, time is a great benefactor.  if you break a bone, and don't set  it, then yes it will heal, but it will heal crooked, and will limit your growth. it will cause you more problems later on.

    emotions are the same. once you set them properly, then time will allow them to heal, but if you leave it, and just ignore the base problem, you will still have problems later on.

    Well, if you pick your wounds every day with a stick,remembering what your mother told you 25 years ago after you dropped your ice cream on her favourite carpet, you are not going to heal. Sometimes you just need to forgive and forget and go on with your life, in order to keep healthy balance and sanity.

      ....but, if someone's mother socked him in the nose for the ice-cream incident and broke his nose; it's not always that easy for him to look in the mirror, see a face that was once prettier before the nose was broken, and forget how much he misses that face.  Or, every time he puts his glasses on, and they're falling off because he's got a weird nose shape, it isn't always that easy to forget either.

      Sometimes, if the reason for something like anger is "big enough", forgiving and forgetting just seems too passive; and for some people, keeping sanity requires knowing they have fight, rather than feeling like they just accept something and move on along, never getting the justice, acknowledgment of the deed, or apology they want/need.

      For some people, the only thing they have to keep that sanity and balance is knowing they have that fight, rather than feel like they sold their soul in search of some artificial peace that isn't going to come from feeling one has sold his soul, and forgiven and forgotten something that he deeply feels should NEVER be forgiven or forgotten.  Forgiving and forgetting works great with the small stuff in life, but once someone has met up with the kind of stuff that shouldn't be forgiven or forgotten, the picture changes.
