Wounds

wounded Minotaur by Picasso
We are not meant to stay
wounded. We are
supposed to move
through our tragedies and
challenges and to help
each other move through
the many painful
episodes of our lives. By
remaining stuck In the
power of our wounds, we
block our own
transformation. We
overlook the greater gifts
inherent in our wounds —
the strength to overcome
them and the lessons that
we are meant to receive
through them. Wounds
are the means through
which we enter the
hearts of other people.
They are meant to teach
us to become
compassionate and wise.
