You are NOT broken.

You do not need fixing.

"Am I broken?"

This is a question that I get asked alot. It's also something I used to ask myself. Along with:

"Why am I the only one who seems to feel this way?"

"Is there something wrong with me?"

It sounds silly to put this in words. And since we might not know anyone else around us who feels the way we do, we can't help but think that there is something wrong with us.

But, you are not alone here.

And you are not broken. Nor do you need "fixing".

You and I were hurt by something distressing. Traumatic.

Something so painful it overwhelmed our ability to cope at that time.

One of these things for me was the sudden loss of my mother when I was five.

It struck me so deeply, challenging my childhood notions of mortality, security, safety and love.

It wounded me.

Wounds that made me feel like there was something about me that was broken.


But to you out there, you went through your own journey.

Like me, what you went through must have been so tough. It made you feel broken too.

But you don't deserve to feel this way. Neither do I. It was never our choosing.

In that way, what we need to understand is that it's not our fault we feel the way we do. We were never given the CHOICE.

Yet, let's know this. Even though it's not our fault, you and I, we both have the choice to HEAL.

And healing starts by listening to the parts of us that have been hurt the most.

Giving them a voice, then rescuing them by offering them the love and security they never received.

Let them heal, so we can heal too.

So, to the child part in me, I can still feel you there. Hurting and feeling the pain that you never deserved.

But I'm here for you.

Be with me, let's find peace together.

And to you out there, I hope you find peace too,
