    I am not my mistakes,

    not my unsaid apologies. I am not my past. I forget this, all the time. I need to engrain into my head that I am made of lovely skin and strong bones- not past mistakes and regrets. I'm human.

    He saw you. He met you.

    He wanted you. He liked you. He chased you. He got you. He had you. He got bored of you. He left you. He broke you. Basically < 3

    Nevertheless

    I feel broken at times. I think those times are really when I have had all I feel I can take. Off of another person whom seem so unfair. I feel broken when my feelings aren't respected. I feel broken when others pull apart and stand afar off. I feel broken when others sometimes...

    I Feel Broken A Lot Lately

    It's a good thing - by confronting the reality of our brokenness, we can work to heal it.... or use it as an excuse for bad behavior, which I don't recommend doing.  Hell, I've spent my share of time using my problems as an excuse, I still do sometimes - I think the point...

    No one understands how much pain a person can

    have inside from all the **** that they've been through and when they're still going through it they break into shattered pieces and it's hard to put them back together.
