“Contrary to what we may have been taught to think, unnecessary and unchosen suffering wounds us, but need not scar us for life. It does mark us. What we allow the mark of our suffering to become is in our own hands.” ~bell hooks
This really gets to the essence of kintsugi living, doesn’t it? We always have the choice of “what we allow the mark of our suffering to become.” We can choose to find (and become) the gold of healing.
