Kintsugi (Japanese: golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (Japanese: golden repair) is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer resin dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum a method similar to the maki-e technique.

In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object's history, which adds to it's beauty. Consider this when you feel broken.
Kintsugi: golden joinery. "When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful." ~Barbara Bloom
