One way or another, we are all scarred and bruised from bad experiences we had from the past. Most often than not, we are embarrased to reveal these scars to others. It became a mindset that we should keep our past and scars hidden deep in our closets. Scars come in different degrees. There are emotional scars, physical scars, spiritual scars and the like. We all have them, but we are ashamed of them. We are afraid that the scars will define us as who we were in the past.
Kintsugi is a Japanese art where they put together broken pieces of a pottery using gold. The Gold will highlight every breakage in the pottery and ironically will make the broken piece even more valuable than what it was.
This is a lesson that we should all learn from Kintsugi. Instead of hiding and being ashamed of our scars, we should highlight them as each scar tells a story of how we grew to become more precious and better. The cracks shows others that we are strong enough to put each piece of ourselves together to create a new and improved being.
The scars will not define us, it will just add more value to what was already a fine piece of art. Learn from your past and let it mold you to the person who you want to become.
