There could be a number of reasons why it takes longer to get over past hurts and sadness. As a psychic I sense the most important reason could be that many individuals continue to vibrate negative energy long after the painful event is over. While that is natural, it is important to recognize that you may be attracting more of the same by giving attention to that difficult experience. The sooner you are able to think and act positive; happy and optimistic, the faster you will move towards emotional healing.
Walk in your truth and live an authentic life.
