What does it mean to heal?

Healing to me does not mean returning to what one was before something went wrong. Wholeness does not necessarily mean normal. And even the word recovery is problematic because, frankly, I don't want what I had before. Who wants to go backwards anyway? Healing means being whole even while still perhaps not functioning like others. To me it also suggests being even better than before for all that is learned on the journey.
