As with physical wounds, emotional wounds need healing time. Many seemingly improve on their own with forgiveness coming easily, but others can be huge and deep and complicated. They need plenty of attention and most likely some help from people who have experience or knowledge of such problems.
The trouble with emotional or spiritual wounds is that other people cannot see them and therefore finding help can be difficult. Also there's the issue of figuring out the best method for exposing an inner wound. It can't be cared for if nobody can tell what kind of injury it is.
And, notably, two people can have the same type of wound and recover from it in completely different ways in different lengths of time.
