When you give too much,and don’t leave space to receive, you’re not being loving to the one person who should matter the most to you- YOURSELF!
When you realize that any outward work is useless, unless it also leads to inner work. And outward kindness and compassion starts with first being that way towards yourself.
I’ve always loved finding the meaning of new words. Some Japanese words, like this one, are so deep and meaningful. One word. SO much meaning. Kintsugi is a word that inspired this piece of poetry. It is about brokenness and how it doesn’t have to mean the end of anything. I hope you like reading it.
