I am daily touched by the lives that are portrayed in these blogs. Today I want to take the time to write to all the broken girls.
I am so deeply sorry for the abuse and trauma you have been faced with. I wish I could take all your pain and heartbreak away. I am so sorry that you have been broken and wounded.
You need to know, it’s not your fault. That you don’t deserve to be broken, that you don’t deserve to be hurting, scared, frustrated or lonely.
You need to know people are listening, they are here reading and feeling your pain right along beside you. You need to know that you aren’t alone and that you are loved.
You are loved because you are lovable. Often times brokenness makes us feel like we are not deserving of love but we are.
You might not have family or friends. You might have those, like I do and still feel so broke and alone but we have each other. You can find so much healing and grace in these women on these blogs. It is possible to put our pieces back together and embrace the new masterpiece we have become.
The abuse we have been through is not the ending of our stories but the turn we were unfortunately forced to take. It’s time to embrace the change in direction and love the people we have become. It’s ok to be broken.
With our brokenness we are no longer the same as everyone else. You have unique pieces, shaped like no one else. We can adjust to the new us if we let go of the image we have of what we used to be.
If you’re broken, don’t be scared to comment below, I’d love to take a look at your blog, listen to your story! Even post a link to some of your work you’d really like me to read because I want to read.
Broken with you,
