From Brokeness to Wholeness

As I’ve told you all, I have join this new mentoring group Diamonds and Pearls. I’ve been learning so much and thought I’d share some more of our discussions: 

From Brokeness to Wholeness

Our life is full of brokeness- broken relationships, broken promises, broken expectations. How can we live with that without becoming bitter and resentful except by returning again and again to God’s faithful presence in our lives. – Henri Nouwen

Wholeness does not mean perfection: it means embracing brokeness as an integral part of life. -Parker J. Palmer

Discussion Questions

  1. What does brokeness mean to you?
  2. Share what your brokeness looks and feels like.
  3. Brokeness is a place where you need to be to start over; to be filled; to decrease; to be mended

This discussion was so great and once I again I found out so much about myself. It also felt good to be able to share how you feel in a judgement free zone. So take down these questions and try writing them down in a journey and come back to them later. Chat soon…

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
