RANDOM THOUGHT:
Every person is a mosaic. Meaning we're all broken but it's those broken shards that create a beautiful picture of who we are. Being broken is apart of being human. Although I think some people try to hide the fact that they're broken. Thinking that they're the only one. Afraid to show their shards. Expecting to be rejected because of their brokenness, not realiizing the work of art they're hiding from the word.

Hello there. The comment by @KeVince reminded me of "Wabi-Sabi", roughly meaning "imperfection". It is the Japanese philosophy of accepting your imperfections and making the most of life. Victimhood and self-pity do not allow you to strive in your life.

The point of life is not to be broken. People today in the US are obsessed with being broken. Buck Up Bucko like your grandparents did and stop the victim mentality and cry me a river....

this made me think of the art of Kintsugi were the broken is made into a work of beauty instead of being cast aside. the same can be done with people when instead of pushing the less fortunate aside we restore them and elevate them. there is nothing noble about being superior to your fellow man, if you want to be noble help your fellow man become greater than you are.

We are forged through the fires of life. We remove the imperfections through pressure, fire, stress, and interaction. We temper ourselves and sharpen our edges. If we fail in this process then we become as fragile as glass.

If you feel you are broken then gather the pieces and begin the process again.

Jordan Peterson has some good lectures on this subject. Check out his podcast.

I agree everyone will be hurt, or experienced pain and disappointment in life one way or another but I prefer not to use broken as it sounds too Defeatest to me personally. What we do with disappointment is important. Some choose to be positive and eventually grow stronger. Others may never get over loss and be depressed or bitter. "As long as there is life, there is hope" - Cicero.

The cultures of the world is beautiful, its the worlds heritage... this above anything else needs to be preserved. Our future children will want to study this heritage in all its strange and beautiful forms.... there is so much to learn from every culture.

A broken mosaic and some of those that walk amongst us have one or more pieces missing.

How do you know everyone is broken? How so?

Because everyone has experienced pain, disappointment, loss, death, fear, betrayal, shame, and all the other lessons we learn after we come into this world. No one leaves this world without having to move forward after being broken by life.
