Wounds heal, scars stay. I can vouch that this is true, both physically and emotionally.
And Masha it is true physical scars stay. People have been telling me for years to not be weak minded... You are not weak minded if you are diseased by PTSD or depression or anxiety. It is an illness that someone must admit then get treated for. It was funny before I even hit high school I thought that mentally ill people was a hoax.

Or so called praised and "thank yous" . Negative is easily remembered because your human instinct to avoid it for survival
