I was a fool and dropped our relationship vase like a child with butterfingers.
This kind of statement kinda downplays the seriousness of an A. An A isn't "oops, I dropped it" and A is deliberately picking it up and smashing it against the wall. Then stomping on the pieces.
In Japan, when a vase is broken, they don't use glue. Glue becomes brittle, doesn't hold strong all the time and leaves the vase less valuable and useful than it was.
They use gold to repair the cracks in Japan. Its called kintsugi. The gold makes the pottery stronger where the breaks are and leaves the whole vase more resilient and beautiful than before, not in spite of the cracks, but because of them, and the care and effort it took to repair them.
Don't look for glue, look for gold. Its harder to come by, but much better in the end. Me: WH
