    I don't know if broken is the right word

    for how I feel. For a start I have to know how I feel. At times I feel empty, like there is nothing inside, only a hole. Then there are times when I feel something growing in my chest. Something so big it could consume me. The only problem is I have no idea what this feeling is...

    I wish I could go to a therapist,

    say "Fix me," and I'd be put back together again. But that's not how life works is it?

    The Hardest Breaks To Heal....

    So today I have mixed emotions, I have been going through a rough patch. Don't you hate it when you are getting somewhere, finding a good place where you can feel alright about yourself and then something knocks you back again? This came in the form of my ex. He has this insane...

    He broke through all my barriers

    and I let him. I fell in love with him because of our strong bond and connection. He said he'll always respect me but in the end he left me and said some horrible stuff. I feel betrayed, heartbroken and unfixable.

    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...

    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 broken inside .

    .. Even though I know self pity is the worse thing ever ... I still feel broken and that's limiting me as a person ... Any of you feel the same ?

    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...

    Don't go around breaking hearts, after it's all said and done it may be you with the one that's broken beyond repair.

    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...

    It's crazy how you can wake up next to someone

    for years thinking you know who they are... And then waking up to the same person... But they aren't the same person.

    I am invisible I am nothing I am pain

    and darkness An empty, desolate wasteland of emotion Destroyed by love and need A bleeding heart Abandoned to the vultures Never to be saved

    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.

    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...

    Can you feel it? The dead weight of your legs

    from the sleeping pills, the dizziness from the alcohol, the soft throbbing of your pulse as blood is pumped out your wrists? That's it. That's what we've been waiting for, that's the quiet comfort. The beauty of dying.

    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 :)
