    It crashed to the floor.

    Shattering into a million separate shards. Each shard a separate testament to pain. I stood there in shock, unable to absorb the totality of this final hurt. . There was no way to put the pieces back . There was only the memories. Ghosts that would haunt my mind. 8/11...

    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...

    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...

    Does anyone ever feel like you love someone

    so much but you just don't want to anymore and you just wish you didn't? That loving that person just hurts too much?

    Is it that everyone will eventually leave me?

    Is it because I'm too bad of a person, because I can't change and have brief moments of clarity? I'm so sorry I'm sorry...please don't leave me.

    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.

    I am alone and shattered inside.

    I don't even know what to do anymore. I feel so lost. I am sitting on my couch, weeping and listening to landslide on repeat.

    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...

    A good thing about it is

    that you can either grow numb and bitter like I did a few days before almost drove me to ending my life or you could be happier and focus on helping others like my pink heart tattoo on my wrist...it's a growing heart :)

    I Wish I Could Tell You...

    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...

    I'll forever be this way I think,

    but what's good about broken you know? It's used to feeling shattered...I am in pieces...exactly as predicted a pebble of the stone. Some are just not meant to be viewed as human I think and I just happen to be one of them.

    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 :)
