The Art of Kintsugi

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of mending broken pottery with a lacquer laced with gold dust. It's also a different mindset - that broken things are not necessarily destroyed. That beauty can come because of the scars and damage. It's resonated with me a lot lately.

Nerdwriter1 on YouTube has a beautiful video about it:



Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, aka the Mormons, gave a beautiful speech on the topic as well:



After struggling with my own depressive episodes, this talk gives comfort. As does the idea that the weak and broken places in our hearts and minds can become strong and beautiful once again through the love of our Savior and His gift of the atonement and His healing touch.
