Wounding and healing are not opposites

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 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

Another wonderful quote with Rachel Naomi Remen on Beyond Meds here: Words for all in the “helping” professions (and for any human who wants to benefit others)
