On Being Broken

Someone once told me that I am too broken as a person due to the things that happened to me in the past.  I disagreed.

Yes, I may have been broken too many times.  But it just made me a stronger and a more resilient person.  Being broken didn’t discourage me from continuing to love other people despite the fact that I know that I might get hurt over and over again.

My brokenness taught me a lot of things.  It may not be too evident that I learned but I keep those lessons close to my heart.  They serve as my signs so I would know what to do next.

Being broken doesn’t mean that I haven’t healed.  I have.  But the scars will always be there and I consider them as “badges” of my being.  I wouldn’t be who I am now if not for those experiences. 

I would like to share with you an article I read about broken people. And I agree to everything written here.  I hope that this would somehow clarify and correct notions about people like me.
