A broken person is a person without hope. People become hopeless and break when they feel defeated by life’s messy ways.

Divorce, death of a loved one, loss of jobs, loss of all we have ever known, loss of a sense of belonging, fear that there will never be anything more than pain and sorrow.

We stay broken when we cannot process our grief and anger or rise above the fear and try to figure out how to go about life another way.
Those who are chained by the expectations of others, society, and their own guilt have a hard time being authentic in each moment. 

Hope, being oneself, courage to live one’s life despite any setbacks are how we become strong at our broken places.

It sounds easy, but it’s hard work. 

And anyone can do it. 

All one has to do is believe.


Put your shoulders back. Stand up straight. Raise your head.

And take that first step toward yourself.

You have waited a long time for this.
