Pain and purpose

What you searched for outside of you,

was all this while within you.

What you wanted to run away from

was always meant to be your refuge.

The you, you wanted to abandon

was always your home.

You’ve been gone a long while.

Go home now, take refuge and search within.

In your pain

lies all the answers you sought.

In your pain

lies the purpose you crave.

Inspired by the term “wounded healer”: Wounded healer is a term created by psychologist Carl Jung. The idea states that an analyst is compelled to treat patients because the analyst himself is “wounded.”
