Using kintsugi as a metaphor for life means that I talk a lot about brokenness, but that can mean different things to different people. This post summarizes the three different types of brokenness and clarifies what I mean by the word.
One of the biggest sources of our feelings of brokenness is ourselves and our belief that some parts of who we are aren't good enough. Learning to lovingly welcome back home those parts of ourselves that we've tried to cut away is the beginning of healing.
While I tend to think of myself as a single entity, I'm actually made up of different parts that react differently to things that happen to me. Working with a stone that's a mixture of stone types this week has helped me apply this better to how I work with these parts of myself in life's times of brokenness.
