You Ain’t Broken

Alright ladies and gentlemen, we need to talk.

We need to talk about this undying need to be “broken” – this glorification of irreparable damage having been committed against your beautiful spirit.I’m not being facetious. Your spirit is beautiful. But do you know what else your spirit is?Strong.Unbreakable.Untamed.Ferocious.Loud.

It might be bruised.


Denied at times.


And it might even feel broken.

But it won’t remain this way forever… if you choose to not let this obstacle defeat you.

Obstacles can come at you from all different directions.

They can manifest in so many different ways.

These obstacles can be in the form of facing a fear or running down the bastard who hurt you.

They can seem shallow to others, but are in fact deep gorges cut into your psyche.

They can take moments to overcome, or a lifetime.

Obstacles can be anything.

They can attempt to break you.

Bend you to the point of fracture.

But you decide what lasting mark they will leave.

Let’s talk about you.

There is no easy fix.

I’m sorry.

There just isn’t.

It’s going to take work to stand up to your obstacles and face them boldly.

It’s going to take strength to leap these hurdles.

It’s going to take a reason for trying.

But you can do it.

Maybe with a little help…

Or a lot.

There’s strength in searching for help.

And receiving it.
