You’re Not Broken | Inner Strength
You’re not broken, beautiful, you just need to see yourself in a new light.
A while ago I broke my website. Resilient, that is.
And I was really upset. Because I was worried that people would see it [and judge me], and I was upset because it wasn’t the first time I’d broken it. More like the hundredth.
I spent eight hours programming yesterday and all I managed to accomplish was digging myself into an even deeper hole.
But this morning I dug myself out.
It’s amazing how much giving yourself a few hours or a day to think things over can change your perspective and open up new possibilities.
And I realized, sometime during the time when I fixed it this morning, that it was never really broken at all. And what I first thought to be hopeless wasn’t after all – the answers were just hiding a layer deeper.
I believe the same thing about human beings. You’re not broken, beautiful, you just need to see yourself in a new light.
Because when something appears hopeless on the outside, it’s not. The answers are just hiding a layer deeper.
You’re not broken, and you don’t need fixing. Despite what other people might have told you.
When I was younger, I used to think I was a broken person. That there was something fundamentally wrong with me that could never be fixed. Some of this was my own thinking, but a lot of it was because other people – bullies – tried to make me feel like there was something wrong with me for being different.
But I’ve come to realize that there’s nothing actually wrong with any of us. We’re all different, but that doesn’t mean we’re wrong.
Maybe you feel like you’re broken because other people have made you feel that way. But we’re all a little broken, which means that none of us are really broken. We’re just sharing in the human experience.
And even if you want to work on improving yourself and your life, that doesn’t mean that what you’re starting with is somehow broken or needs to be fixed. You’re just making gradual, small improvements.
If you’re on a journey of self improvement, be careful to focus on just enhancing and improving what you already have rather than trying to “fix” yourself. There is nothing wrong with you, and you don’t need to take a sledgehammer to your life.
Be gentle with yourself. You already have all the answers inside you. You just need a little guidance to discover them for yourself.
Don’t worry abut comparing yourself to other people. They’re on their own journey, and you’re on yours. Because we’re all different, our journeys will never look exactly the same, and that’s a beautiful thing.
Did you ever see the movie The Pursuit of Happyness? All through that movie, I was really worried for Will Smith’s character. Because I believed, as the movie wanted us to believe, that things were hopeless. But his character never gave up hope. By the end of the movie, he had turned his life around from being homeless on the streets to getting a job as a stock broker.
So instead of thinking about things the way you always have, how can you see this situation differently? If you were a happy version of yourself, how would you approach this?
Sometimes it’s all a matter of seeing things in a different light.
