"We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through tragedies and help each other move through the many painful episodes in our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of wounds, we block transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds ~ the strength to overcome them and the lessons we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter into the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise."
