I Feel Broken Inside

    At this point, my list of what's not broken is

    shorter than ever. How long do you hang on to a life that has been so battered and bruised for as long as you can remember? I believe, long enough for people to realize that you are not coming from a selfish place. If you could place them inside your tortured brain and have the...

    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.

    My skin is not a tough armor,

    its too thin and easily broken. The air i am inhaling is attenuating with each gasp for breath. My shins are quivering and small hairline fractures litter their outer most layers from too many end of my ropes falls to my knees. The heart that beats within my rib cage is tattered...

    My kids deserve so much than what I'm giving them. Being a single mother isn't easy. I love them. Would die for them. My family is very supportive. I feel like I've let them down. I have a nursing school entrance I know I'm not going to get in nursing school..I can't keep a good...

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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 :)

    so happy right? Telling jokes, laughing, having a good time and..... Dying inside. She's hurt and tired. Tired of all the drama. Tired of not being good enough, tired of life. But she doesn't want to look dramatic, weak, or attention seeking. So she keeps it all inside. Acts...

    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
