The Wounds Hurt Us Into Healing

“This is our human dilemma.  We are attachers who must learn non-attachment, lovers who must learn to let go, and grievers who must learn the deep joy that underlies all grief.  So we patch our grief with proverbs, knowing that the patches barely cover our wounds.  The wounds themselves are precious.  They hurt us into healing.”

These are all areas of struggle in my life.  Attachment, letting go, grief and the wounds that come with suffering.

Life knocks us down, chips away and tears us to pieces, but we have the power to be strong, resilient, and weather the storm.

I love the idea that the wounds hurt us into healing and the sad times give us soul…
