I Feel Broken Inside

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,893 People

    There's just so much going on.

    I feel so broken. I'm 15 and school is killing me. My friends aren't really my friends and I think my boyfriend is getting tired of me. Which sucks. I feel like I'm falling apart. I want someone to notice me. I want someone to save me.

    I'm struggling. I feel

    so very fragile. Delicate. Breakable. I feel as though the slightest breeze will blow me away... How I wish. Goodbye. Farewell. Good riddance. It isn't the fact that I face the prospect of never seeing you again. Hearing your voice. Feeling your touch. No. Break ups are never...

    I just want to find someone

    who will love me back. Someone who won't hurt me. Someone who treats me like a human and not a possession. Someone who really cares about me. I'm so broken inside. If you talk to me, you'd know. It's almost impossible to hide. I wanna be fixed, but it seems no one wants to take...

    I feel so alone and worthless

    and the urge to self harm keeps getting worse and worse. I have a wonderful boyfriend and people who care about me, so why do I feel this way... :(

    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.

    What I say: I'm fine!

    Everything's good! I'm good! What I actually think: I'm broken. My heart physically hurts. Why do I feel like this. Why am I still here. Why do I cry over someone I never had. Why am I upset over something I knew could never be.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Does he really love you?

    Or does he just say it? Does he feel the kind of love so deep that it hurts when you aren't there? Does he know the kind of love where your heart doesn't want anyone else? Does he know the kind of love the way I still love you?

    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 :)
