Better off Broken


Kintsugi is a traditional Japanese art form where broken pottery is repaired with gold. Instead of throwing away the damaged item, it is celebrated and made even more beautiful by applying gold lacquer to the cracks. This process not only highlights the repairs but also transforms the broken pieces into a symbol of resilience and beauty.


In today's society, where the throwaway culture prevails, both material objects and individuals are often seen as disposable. It's easier to discard and replace things and even people when they encounter difficulties or challenges.


However, kintsugi teaches us a valuable lesson about the value of repair and resilience. Just like a broken vase that is repaired with gold, the process of overcoming hardships and embracing our imperfections can make us even more valuable and beautiful.


The craftsmanship and skill that go into repairing a broken object with kintsugi elevate its worth. Similarly, when we allow ourselves to be repaired by the "Master," when we are put on the His workbench, we can emerge stronger and more valuable than before.


Life's challenges and experiences can break us, but it is through the process of healing and growth that we can discover our true strength and worth. By embracing our brokenness and allowing ourselves to be put back together, we can become more resilient, compassionate, and empathetic.


Just like a kintsugi masterpiece, our scars and the stories they hold become part of our unique journey. They remind us of the challenges we have overcome and the wisdom we have gained along the way.


So, even in a society that often favors quick fixes and disposable solutions, it is important to remember the profound value of repair, both in objects and in ourselves. The process of being broken and repaired can transform us into something more beautiful, resilient, and valuable than we could ever imagine.


In the past, I believed that hiding my addiction and brokenness was the best way to gain acceptance and love from others. I thought that if nobody knew about my imperfections, I would be more lovable. However, I'm grateful to have discovered a safe space where I don't have to pretend to be perfect. I can openly acknowledge my brokenness and understand that perfection is unattainable.


My name is Dean, I'm a grateful believer in Jesus Christ, striving for Moral and sexual purity.
