Own Your Struggles

8/4/2022

When a bowl is broken in Japan, it’s put back together with the cracks being filled with gold, creating a beautiful lining. This is to emphasize the beauty in what was once broken. They believe when something has suffered damage, and has a history… it makes it more beautiful, and the same goes for human beings. Everything that you’ve been through and everything you’re going through, doesn’t make your life uglier, although it may seem that way when we’re going through it, it’s up to us to choose to paint our struggles with gold and make them beautiful. You are not broken beyond repair, you can pick yourself up and learn from what has happened and become a better person for it, because of the struggle that you’ve been through. You can wear your scars proudly, as a badge of honor, as if to say, “Look at what I’ve been through, it has made me who I am today, and I can get through anything life puts in front of me now.” Nobody has had a perfect life and nobody ever will. It’s only up to us, if we choose to paint our broken pieces gold and make it beautiful. Don’t be ashamed of what has happened to you, everything that happened to you happened for a reason, so the more we deny, the more we complain and don’t accept what’s happened to us, then it doesn’t become useful. The moment that we accept and find what’s useful in the struggle, the things we’ve been through, it’s just like painting the cracks in our broken pieces gold. Turning something that could be ugly into something beautiful and inspiring, when what you have been through is an inspiration for other people then it was all worth it. So don’t get stuck on how things used to be, I once heard a quote that went, “Every next level of your life will demand a new you” and sometimes it takes being broken in order to become that new version of yourself. So, if you’re going through hard times, I hope this can help you.

You’re not broken beyond repair.

Pain has a purpose.
