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.
