I Have a Place In My Heart For Broken People

...cries she with silent lips, "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore"... 5,679 People

    I have always been the type of person

    that had a heart, that's big enough to try and save the world. Ever since I've download this app, I really started to realize just how broken people really are. It breaks my heart to read the stories I have read and to feel like there's nothing I can do. I've been broken in so...

    There are many around me with broken hearts.

    Those who have loved someone and gave completely of themselves, only to be told it wasn't good enough. I to am one of these... I wish I could take the pain away and mend their broken hearts. Each one so beautiful, each one so unique, each heart a gift to this world and...

    I've been broken a time

    or two myself. I think most of us have.  Sometimes it's just a little chip around the edge and sometimes a crack to the very core that makes you stop and wonder if you can even be fixed again.  And if you are fixed are you going to put together as someone quite different from...

    Strangely Comforting..

    Broken people. I know so many. Maybe thats why my heart is so full? Its taken up by all these damaged souls. I think everybody is broken, in some way or another. I find it comforting, as strange as that may sound, because it makes me realise that we all have a past that we may...

    Its 2 in the night and I have been crying

    for an hour now. I feel the pain all over again after another year. The first man whom I really loved, the first man who touched me, the first man with whom I held hands and hugged had turned me down. That was a year ago, a year ago when I literally begged like a pathetic...

    Whether or not I am talking to someone

    as a friend or romantic interest. It really does not matter. I am broken and I am attracted to broken people too. I feel that I can help them put themselves back together and that makes me feel a little less broken too.

    They Need Some Love. Don't They?

    I always believe that we humans (even animals) have inherent nature to care for other people. We all are born with this quality. If is just after the social conditioning that we somehow suppress this quality. Some of us become emotionless. Some of us become too emotional. Most of...

    How Do You Help A Girl That Cuts Herself?

    I really like this girl. She is gorgeous, kind, athletic like me, and we get along just fine. The only bad thing that bothers me is that she cuts herself as a way of turning emotional pain into physical pain. While I don't condone this abuse, I don't judge her for it because I...

    It's okay to ask for help sometimes. It's okay to admit that you're carrying a burden to heavy to take on alone. We're meant to live life together, and to open our arms in compassions when we see someone stumble. We are meant to be wrapped in someone's arms when we are the ones...

    If you are a broken soul or have a shattered heart like mine, then I can identify with you and relate on a personal level.. The river of pain in my soul is a deep one and sustains many smaller hurts that only surface now and again to bite me. Perhaps we might be able to help one...

    everyone is broken. Some are just worse

    and others can't even be fixed. But we learn to be like that and live like that because maybe, being broken is actually what life is and if you aren't broken then you are not living. Maybe brokenness is tragically beautiful. Maybe we are all meant to be broken.

    I see it in them, their eyes dull,

    To break a bone in any part of your body mean's a trip to the doctor, a cast and heal time. But there is no cast or splint for a broken spirit. To be beat down by life and circumstance's to a point that the heart is gone from you is a sad thing to see in anybody. I know because I...
