What If We’re Just Broken Together?
There’s this beautiful song by Casting Crowns, Broken Together, that I can’t stop listening to. There’s so many messages in the song, but the one I can’t shake is this beautiful message of being able to last forever because we’re broken together.
Holy powerful song folks (I linked it at the bottom).
I believe that we live in a culture that glorifies wholeness to a fault. It leads you to believe that the only way things last, is if they’re perfect. That damage, pain, betrayal, injury are things that you can’t ever heal in love.
And honestly I disagree in a lot of ways. Now clearly there are hurts that no love should have to withstand such as abuse and repeated, habitual betrayal with no remorse, but that’s what I’m talking about here.
I’m talking about the ways you break each other in love and ruin the fairytale of what you wanted love to look like.
Can you heal from that and create a relationship that is stronger and more authentic then before? Can you last forever being broken together?
I really believe you can. Now it’s not easy. But I would be lying if I didn’t say that I saw this healing work with couples in my Sacramento therapy office.
As the song says, if you can bring your shattered dreams and I’ll bring mine, can healing be spoken and save us?
The amazing thing is that research actually supports this too. We know that healing and repairs made in a relationship are more effective, efficient and last longer than doing the healing work on our own. So in essence, yes you can last forever broken together.
How healing is that?
If you’re feeling broken in love and want to learn more about healing together, please reach out. I know that a short conversation together, can be the first step in an amazing journey. And I know it can be scary to reach out, but I also know that with great risk, comes great reward.
