Please let me tell you that you are NOT broken! Our human experiences lead us to believe we are broken! If you have experienced any form of abuse, it probably had a great impact on your life.
Most of us were not taught coping skills when we were young. And, most of us did not receive counseling for traumas we may have experienced in life. When we put these things together, it's no wonder so many of us feel as though we are broken.
If you had a parent, for example, that didn't show you love, respect, or appreciation, it's easy to feel as though you've been rejected, unwanted, or unloved. If you suffered sexual, physical, or emotional abuse, it compounds these emotions and feelings.
