金繕い (kintsukuroi) - the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.
I happened to stumble on some people from HS.
People would tell me i was ugly and gross and make fun of me for getting cheated on and dumped.

Did anyone ever sleep with them?
Oh right, no. LOL.
And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.
