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.
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.
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.
