I Feel Broken Inside

    I have always felt this brokenness I suppose.

    I have never felt "normal" (whoever gets to judge normal, I would like to know).Even as a child I can remember being asked why can't I just be like the other nice little girls my age? I received nurturing mind you, they did the best they could from their brokenness. Every soul...

    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...

    My skin is not a tough armor,

    Two years ago I was more then proud of myself.

    I was over the moon I had actually graduated when everyone said I wouldn't. Fast forward to today and I am nothing! I sit in my room doing absolutely nothing. For the past two years I have been applying for jobs day in day out. Everyday I wake up hoping to see an email from a...

    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.

    Why does he get to make me feel this way inside.

    . .He gets to make me feel lost and broken, stupid and un-useful. Then he just walks in like nothing has happened and drops his I'm sorry and expects it to just be fine. Well it's not. I am still this broken jumbled mess inside begging to be loved, to be pieced together again...

    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'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 don't know what is wrong with me.

    Maybe I trust people too much. Or they never really cared about me. Maybe they just used me. I am just so tired of thinking that I have a really good friend. And then they leave. Usually with no excuse. But this time I got an excuse. I was told that he stayed out of guilt...

    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 :)

    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'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.
