Kintsugi, or Japanese Pottery Repair, is a centuries' old practice of piecing together
broken or smashed pottery using a gold-infused lacquer.
I think this is a wonderful picture of how healed brokenness can look in our own lives.
Becoming broken is part of the human condition. As unwanted, difficult, and painful as it may be,
we simply can't escape it. But how we respond to that brokenness informs and determines
how it impacts our lives. We can stay put, shattered in what feels like a hundred pieces all over the floor ... or we can choose to not let it define us and instead allow healing to take place. And when we do that, something wonderful happens: as we are pieced back together, we become more beautiful
and infinitely more valuable than we were before we experienced our deep pain.
Counselling can help you put your broken pieces back together again.
I can't make your past experiences go away, but I can help you feel like a whole person again,
learning how to live with freedom in the present instead of feeling like a prisoner of your past.
