I am Broken and it’s a Good Thing

I am broken.

I’ve spent most of my life trying in vain to fit in. Now, I am learning that being broken may be the best thing for me.

My personality is splintered. Not fully segregated but like a window, cracked in many directions yet holding its own. Looking through this window, you see so many angles on the world.

This splintered, multi-sided worldview is an asset, not a gift. I was required to sacrifice my mental and emotional health in order to have it. Embracing it was 100% my choice. I’ve earned my genius through suffering well.
