Patches

The most beautiful people I have known are those who have known defeat,
known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.
These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life
that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

Beautiful people
do not just happen.

– Historian Roy Nichols

Pain is a great teacher, but most of us would rather learn some other way.
We think that happiness comes from a perfect childhood and avoiding mistakes.
We don’t like that patched-up feeling that comes with each survival.
We would like to be seamless, no patches, no scars.

Cherish your hard-won depth and understanding.
Some pain is required for the journey.
The gifts you seek are often disguised as problems.

Patches bring strength whether on our knees or in our hearts.
