I believe one of the educational messages is the power of words to heal.  Through her own story (her being able to tell the story of the horrible and unimaginable physical and emotional pain she has endured, not to mention the deaths of several of her children), Sethe is able to heal the scars of her past.  Often writing and even talking about difficult times can be cathartic for people; it can be a form of therapy, in many ways.  Simply being able to recount fully one's difficult times can be a way of healing the past.
