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"... 6,859 People

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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.

    special for people that are broken. Because the fact is if anybody says they've never been broken there a liar. It just takes 5 minutes pat on the back. I can check. Even something as a wink make their day a little bit brighter and you a little bit better of a person.
