“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.”
- Carolyn Myss
from her book “Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can”

i took this photo from the reject pile at the statuary.
surely we don’t want to remain frozen in our pain.
we are not our wounds.
