    I Am Broken...and It's Who I Am Now

    I wrote this as a response to a comment on one of my stories. I wanted to make it a story because so many people...with good intentions, I'm sure......believe that just because we have had bad, sad, experiences in life, it somehow turns us into stronger, wiser, more resilient...

    I feel blue tonight, well not just tonight,

    for the last 2 1/2 weeks. I just want to cry and scream and run, I want someone to hug me so tight and don't let me go, I just want to feel secure someone to tell me everything is gonna be ok.

    Broken

    My mom has never really been the "motivational" person and even though I feel like I've done everything right (ie good grades, gone to college, want to be a vet), it will never be enough for her. Or for the rest of my family.  My father died when I was young and my...

    I'm messing up everything.

    Everything. I found someone wonderful and I can't even keep her happy. She deserves someone sooo much better for me. Some one who's a lot more qualified at life. Everytime I find something that makes me happy, part of me gets so terrified that I'm going to screw it up that I end...

    I feel broken inside.

    .. I ended a six year relationship with the love of my life. I wanted more than he could offer me. And this past weekend, my friend and I got into the biggest friendship-ending fight ever. I'm all alone now. And all I can hear are the harshest of words. All I feel deep down...

    Married to my first and last boyfriend

    for 12 years. We're best friends. We fight. Nothing is perfect. It's one day at a time. He's annoying. I wish he didn't say he loved me so much. I tolerate him, if anything. He's a good man. I can't go anywhere else, to get away and start over. and can't talk to anyone. People...

    Darkness comes, fills your head with stupid

    stuff. You look at your own life... and feel like you didn't achieve anything... You beg for feelings of joy and happyness.. But it feels like another hope lost. Don't give up, fight for your goals. Sometimes you have to say... You will be heard and understood. Close your eyes...

    I wished i would tell you,

    that you all dont need to feel broken inside. People who hurt others are sick inside and they have been hurt too. You should find your strength in this world and dont let others brake you! My strength is my daughter and celebrities! I found my strength!

    You ever feel like you're slowly dying.

    It's not a broken heart thing or a depression thing it's a reality thing.A person can only survive through so much external and internal pain.The body slowly breaks down and with every new comeback the energy needed to move forward,just isn't there.Time takes it's toll on the...

    I wish I could tell you that I felt alone, but I didn’t know how to tell you. I didn’t know how to phrase it so that you would understand, and so I scrapped it and threw away such an attempt so to kill possibilities of understating or overstating; being human, what I was...

    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 :)
