Physician, heal thyself
We all know that life is a wonderful but painful journey. Sometimes the bravest thing we ever have to do is accept a different answer to a wish, a dream, a hope, or a prayer than the one we were asking for, and trust that it is still going to work out okay in the end.
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.
