Wholeness from brokenness

In Response To: Anne, a few thoughts about your geese story (LONG!) (Betsy A. (O- iNFj seamstress extraordinnaire))

Hi Betsy:

You have touched on a major theme in my life. How do we become whole again after being wounded? In cultural anthropology courses one learns that many cultures have the archetype of the wounded healer, as described in your story. When I start really wallowing in self-pity or loss over my particular situation, I try to think of how much it has taught me, how much it has given me, instead of what it has taken from me and how it continues to limit me. And I try to say to myself that even when we are physically broken, nothing can take away our spiritual wholeness--no matter how deep the emotional/spiritual aspect of a wound (whether physical, emotional, spiritual, or some combination thereof) may be, there is always hope of emotional/spiritual wholeness again, only with a much deeper understanding of life and the wholeness and connectedness of all things, precisely because of the loss and/or violence we have suffered and what it has taught. This is hopeful stuff!
