    Which is harder to heal? A Broken Heart? or a Wounded Soul?

    Most definitely a wounded soul. A broken heart heals with time, a wounded soul needs more than time to heal...it needs fulfillment and mending.

    My experiences tell me a wounded soul is far more difficult to heal than a wounded heart.

    The heart is a blood pumping muscle.  It is vital.  So are the kidneys,and the lungs......the heart can not grasp air, nor filter toxins..........these things are not the function of the vital heart.

    I am all about the  "soul"........when, I read a book, I will not put it down, until I am finished reading it.  When I sew a skirt, I will not put the material down  until I can wear it.

    When I cook, I will not eat until every other person has been fed to their fill.........

    When I work, I will endure 12-15 hour days, so that my staff can have their needed ( and deserved ) rest, time at home.

    The " soul".............it IS the essence of us.

    Many times, various peoples, various situtations and circumstances, have injured my heart, weakened my position.....caused me to take a second look.........abused children, underfed animals, injustice(s) across the globe, they all heart my heart............still, I have faith in the tomorrow.......I still get  up and go on, even when I am weary.

    My soul keeps my heart beating.

    NO ONE has ever been allowed to defeat or question............my very soul, though, many peoples have added to it.  It IS the very thing, that makes me, me........whatever and all that my essence entails.   My soul IS me.

    It has to be the wounded soul ... no doubt about it.

    A wounded soul will take a lifetime to fix, if ever. Broken heart - well, that's no fun either, and will take as long as it takes. Different for everyone.

    It's definitely a wounded soul. You never know how to do it and how to start.

    A broken heart heals easily (there are doctors you know) but a wounded soul, where is the soul exactly. LOL

    Your soul IS your very essance so to be wounded it would change the very essance of who you are as I believe every experience defines us in some way.  Can that ever be restored or healed?  Changed yes.  I would have to say a broken heart would be much easier to heal

    Some people have had their soul's crushed and they have lived decades in this way. It is a kind of torture and I would never wish it for anyone. If you can come through it then you will be able to help people who most people can never even reach at all

    I go with a wounded soul.  I believe the soul is the core of one's existence, and therefore would be much more painful.  As painful as a broken heart is, I can go on.  If my soul was wounded or broken, I don't know how I would recover.

    who ever get the first treatment will heal.
    If you hurt and if you get the first aid immidiately that will heal

    If you are cheated and you get another girlfriend immidiately heart broking will also heal.

    I would think a wounded soul. This goes much deeper than a broken heart which often can be healed by time and support.
