The good lesson here is to discount damage in favor of restoration. Every day we do things that damage and hurt (to our bodies, our relationships, our communities, our environment... you name it). But just because something is damaged doesn't make it automatically disposable - put your mind in restoration mode and see what happens. The end result isn't the same as the original, but it can be just as good.
