Rachel Naomi Remen: Wounding and Healing

Wounding and healing are not opposites. 
They're part of the same thing. 
It is our wounds that enable us to be 
compassionate with the wounds of others. 
It is our limitations that make us kind 
to the limitations of other people. 
It is our loneliness that helps us to find 
other people or to even know they're 
alone with an illness. I think I have served 
people perfectly with parts of myself 
I used to be ashamed of.
- Rachel Naomi Remen
