Question: "Am I a 'wounded healer,' or am I an 'unhealed wounder?'"

The phrase, "wounded healer" comes from a book by Henri Nouwen. The idea is that, as scripture says, Jesus was "wounded for our sins...and with his stripes, we are healed."

All of us have been wounded in life. If with God's help, and the help of loving people, we can be healed, then we can help others heal. We are, therefore, "wounded healers." If we have been wounded in life and have NOT been healed, then we are tempted to continue the cycle of abuse we experienced, and we become "Unhealed wounders" of others.

We see "Unhealed wounders" in the abuse of children and adults, racism, mental illness, and dangerous religious ideology. Also, the victims of these experiences naturally need healing, as well. If not us, who? If not now, when? etc.

It helps to share thoughts with people you respect. They may return the jesture.
