I have heard this word a couple times in the last two days, and although being broken tends to have a negative connotation, it has given me peace for whatever reason. I might have written my own thoughts, but I absolutely loved these words from Lisbeth Darsh today…
“We are all broken. Show me someone who says they are perfectly unharmed and I’m looking at a liar, or someone trying desperately to put up a brave front.
None of us get through life in an inviolate state. There is no one left unscathed; only those who have managed to bounce back quicker or higher.
And yet we find our sanctuaries. Places that help us to heal, to put ourselves back together, to make us stronger, to grow the scars over the wounds.
Some of us come to these places to heal somehow through fire. Like a heat that cauterizes the wound, the new pain takes the old pain away. We go deeper into the darkness in order to escape, to free ourselves. We go through in order to get through, to emerge on the other side into the light, to fall in triumph, and exhaustion, and some kind of gratitude that such light even exists. We don’t want to escape for just right now, we want to go beyond and leave the pain, make it a memory, abandon it like a sandbag after the run, a barbell after the workout, an empty water bottle. We used that pain, and now we can walk away from it.”
