    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
