Wounded Healers

Nobody escapes being wounded. We all are wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not "How can we hide our wounds?" so we don't have to be embarrassed, but "How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?" When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers. ~ Henri Nouwen

Henri Nouwen describes what I believe life is really about.  
The more each of us is transparent, openly sharing our woundedness, as well as wisdom gained . . . light and hope discovered . . . the more we will bring healing to each other.
