I Feel Broken Inside

    Today, I miss my father terribly.

    Maybe because it's Father's Day. Maybe because it's the first World Cup that I have to watch without him. Maybe because I need a hug. My sadness consumes me. Today, I was reminded that my father wasn't always perfect. He made some decisions that changed the course of my life...

    for you, everything you want but it's never good enough! You've broken me, I've let you break me down bit by bit. I say no more but then run straight back to you. Why? I love you and I can't let go. You know yourself you'll be lucky to find someone else who will put up with the...

    So yesterday, I had a little meltdown, and if I hadn't found this site when I did I don't know what could have happened. I have shared a partial part of my story in my previous post, and I can't help but feel like sharing it will help lift a weight. I am hopelessly in love. I...

    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'm crying right now.

    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.

    It crashed to the floor.

    I feel numb now. Used,

    abused, and broken into little pieces. Alone. My thoughts are destroying all the good parts of me left, mocking me. There is nothing left but the worst possible feeling inside. I hate myself.

    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...

    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.

    God uses broken things beautifully.

    Broken clouds pour rain; Broken soil sets as field; Broken crop yields seed; Broken seed gives life to a new plant. In any hard situation, if you feel you are broken, understand that God is planning to utilize you for some great cause :)
