Brokenness, Beliefs, and Spirituality

Brokenness, Beliefs, and Spirituality

Ratings: (0)|Views: 39|Likes:
Published by Jane Gilgun
We are all broken in some way. How we respond to our brokenness depends upon good fortune and the beliefs we develop. In our everyday life, we seek meaning, connection, fulfillment, and love. This seeking is built into our DNA and is necessary for our survival in infancy. Throughout our lives, seeking and its fulfillment give meaning to our lives. In this article, I discuss these ideas and illustrate them with examples from my personal life and from my research on resilience and the meanings of violence to perpetrators. I conclude with reflections on beliefs and spiritual longing.
