They say women (people) like us are broken, but broken can’t be fixed. We are wounded until we are healed. Broken isn’t a term I use to describe who I am or was. Nothing is broken inside of me because I still continue to rise each day to face it. I’m not damaged either because I deserve love just as any other person. Those words are belittling and places those who have experienced trauma in a box. There is nothing broken or damaged about someone who has felt hurt and pain. If we didn’t experience the negative life has to offer we wouldn’t be able to embrace the positive, ‘we’ learn after healing. Are ‘we’ broken? I think NOT! Rise up beautiful people and heal!
