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"... 6,976 People

    Hate to say it this way,

    but the more broken you are, the harder I try and glue your pieces back together. I have this overwhelming need to be there for the people that need a friend the most. I guess because I never want people to feel the way I used to; ALONE. I was broken myself, and still am a...

    Count the garden by the flowers,

    never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll-Important things are those that make you feel happy and make you smile, count them.

    Last week, I gave my last few dollars to a

    homeless guy I saw panhandling in the middle of a busy intersection. I was waiting at the light, saw him and rolled down the window to hand him the cash. His eyes were so grateful...It touched me deeply because, as a child, I experienced homelessness. Had it not been for my...

    Because at some point in all of are lives we

    have had to face something nobody lives a perfect life. Being broken means you were forced to change and there was no way around it. It's not pleasant but often times it's necessary to move to the next level. Being broken doesn't mean staying stuck however some people use that...

    Concerned About What This Means About Me

    In part, I love that I have compassion for "broken" people. But, does it mean that I have some sort of psychosis for this? I suppose as long as I not exclusively drawn to these types I'm ok. Afterall, I think everyone is "messed up" in some way or another. It is another trait...

    The Broken Can Heal The Broken.

    I myself am a broken person working hard to make herself feel whole again. I used to be angry about why the things that happened to me happened, Id cry and scream that it was unfair. It took a long time for me to come to the realization that the broken can best help the broken...

    My Heart.

    I have always had a place in my heart for broken people. I empathize with them. I know how it feels to hurt. I can always tell by the look on their face, or the tone of their voice, that something is wrong. So I try to make them smile. I might be the only person that tries to...

    Not once during that time had I stopped to

    think about what I wanted. My fear of being alone far outweighed any desire to get to know myself, so I continued on from one relationship to the next, wondering with the ending of each one why it had failed. Of course, I blamed all of them. There couldn?t possibly have been...

    We're all broken in way

    or another. And, we're all in this life together. It's never my place to try to "fix," "change," or "heal" someone else. I can offer my love, support and encouragement. If those gifts are accepted and/or returned is entirely up to the other person.

    If someone loves you madly.

    . love them back unconditionally. . not only because they love you. . but because they are teaching you to love & opening your heart & eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.

    I believe that imagination is stronger

    than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.

    I think the reason I feel

    for them is because I have been broken. I have had so many things happen to me, but they have taught me to understand, and to not judge others for their pain.

    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...

    Once you've been broken yourself,

    and have in most ways recovered...you never forget what it was like, and thus, anyone you sense is going through some rough/emotional/painful stuff is someone to be helped...It's as simple as that.

    I've perhaps had an epiphany.

    .. Maybe instead of trying to heal from the heartache she's caused I should push in the other direction and embrace it. After too much pain is caused, the body seems to ignore a great deal of it. Why not emotional pain? I'm starting to think she's caused enough to deaden my...

    It's not hard to find "someone",

    but it's almost impossible to find "the one". And the person you choose to love...will they love you back with the same passion and intensity?

    Or at least, people who feel broken.

    I don't believe anyone is truly broken - they just need to find their strength again. I've been through a lot in my 27 years, and I'm still here. I'm around if anyone needs to talk through stuff. :)
