Maybe what we need is what Father Henry Nouwen called being a “wounded healer.” He describes, “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.” The humility and transparency allows us rediscover our lost humanity, lost to the mechanisms of modern life.
