While its often the case that we struggle on a daily basis about things that bother us, things we can’t change, things that we continuously mourn over, cry over, and can’t let go, its also true that we can never, contrarily, truly be broken. Struggling with the past, present, and future anxieties often burden our psyches, sometimes even on a physical, emotional and psychological level (as we can see with mental illness being unable to balance the three) we don’t know how to deal with the idea of constant changes and shifts in our lives. Because of this, I realized feeling a sense of “brokenness” before, that it’s only the “trapped” sensation that we can’t deal with.
It’s an in between mentality of the before and the unwillingness to change or move on thats the feeling of brokenness. Its a stuck sensation. The inability to move or make progress. Not being able to effectively process to a next level in character and being. Its not being able to let go of the past that is depression, or fearing the future anxiety, or even effectively dealing with emotion bipolar disorders that is the inability to process and deal with the pains and strains around you. It’s not being able to go back to ones once happy stage or comfortable life style or not coping correctly with pain that hinders us from moving on.
By moving on, I dont mean neither forgetting or carrying it with you wherever you go, but instead growing and learning from the experiences that builds character and willingness to become better and stronger. Healthy means of coping means using your life styles, ideologies, and perspectives to break past the window of pain and hardship and using it as a weapon to open your past perspective into something new and more developed. It’s the spreading of universal happiness and peace, the helping of other people, and the acceptance that you can deal with the pains you endure. Its important to try not to over exaggerate the current and live in only the present giving yourself enough to endure at the moment of existence.
We are not broken to the extent of being unable to grow past the weeds of going too far in the past or too deep in the future, but living currently using the past as something learned and the future as on the pursuit of goals. Don’t feel broken or lost because we just need the current moment to survive and the resources to maintain our livelihood. Always live for the self now and do what you can now and appreciate the ability to be presently aware.
No one is ever really broken.
