The art of Kintsugi in someone's life

Kintsugi also known as kintsukuroi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum. Modern artists experiment with the ancient technique as a means of analyzing the idea of loss, synthesis, and improvement through destruction and repair or rebirth. There are a few major styles or types of kintsugi - Crack, Piece method, Joint call. It is said that the philosophy behind kintsugi is to value as objects beauty as well as its imperfections. I guess humans are no less fragile than pottery. We break more often than a pottery. Rather than owning our scars, we prefer to hide them. We get vulnerable but then at the end of the day, there's this one person in whom we find our peace. They know the broken us and make sure that their presence in the art of kintsugi in our life. They fill the breakage with love, affection, and care. We all know that one person so why not take a moment to thank him or her. You are too the art of kintsugi in someone's life knowingly or unknowingly.
