I Feel Broken Inside

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,251 People

    Nobody can repair me,

    I now wake up wishing I could sleep longer. I wake up empty, like I'm living in some elses body. Like there's a curse on me, dragging me down.

    I'm waiting, watching,

    longing for you. Come to bed, love we'll fight in the morning. All alone in this empty bed, I cry and I try for you to come near. I'm sorry, forgive me. We can fight in the morning.

    Sometimes I just feel constricted inside with

    all the pressure to succeed. Grades, extracurriculars, sports, a social life, and personal health. I feel like I've already failed at more than half of those because they are not perfect. Who am I kidding, I'm not popular (which isn't that bad), I'm not good at sports, I have...

    I don't know if broken is the right word

    for how I feel. For a start I have to know how I feel. At times I feel empty, like there is nothing inside, only a hole. Then there are times when I feel something growing in my chest. Something so big it could consume me. The only problem is I have no idea what this feeling is...

    You see that girl? She looks

    so happy right? Telling jokes, laughing, having a good time and..... Dying inside. She's hurt and tired. Tired of all the drama. Tired of not being good enough, tired of life. But she doesn't want to look dramatic, weak, or attention seeking. So she keeps it all inside. Acts...

    I go back and forth thinking

    that it's possible to have something meaningful with someone.... to trust someone. Being truthful, it ends up becoming too much for me. I know that it's safer to keep lovers at arms length. Only allow them close when our clothes are off.

    I am pretty much unable to feel anything deeply.

    Not happiness, or love, or even anger. I dwell on the bad, because it is easier to hold onto. My life isn't roses, but it definitely isn't the worst. Yeah, I was abused by an ex. And I miscarried a child last year. But I have never harbored any strong feelings about those. I...

    I've felt this way for a long time.

    Like I'm broken and pieces inside are missing. I've secretly hoped that someone could somehow fix me and put me back together. I've fantasized that someone would come along and find me, guide me, help me and save me. There's times I feel like I'm incapable of even taking...

    Can you feel it? The dead weight of your legs

    from the sleeping pills, the dizziness from the alcohol, the soft throbbing of your pulse as blood is pumped out your wrists? That's it. That's what we've been waiting for, that's the quiet comfort. The beauty of dying.

    Someone I cared about very deeply has

    disappeared from my life and I feel like she took everything inside with her. I just feel empty now. I just want to fill up that emptiness with ice cream and hugs and kisses. It's a good thing I can at least buy ice cream.

    No one can help. No one gets it. I can't tell anyone anything without someone getting hurt. I'm sick of being programmed to self destruct. I'd kill to be someone else.
