From that perspective a broken life/heart need not be perceived as having to pick up the pieces or mending the cracks. It’s a fresh start to rearrange the pieces the way you want it. Even discarding some of the pieces with dignity! And these pieces can always be rearranged again later because in the course of the earlier rearrangement, we acquire the skills to maneuver the pieces that is nothing short of our own essence. We see and learn about each piece as we move them around. Building the self has never been this intimate and raw.
