A Brokenness Inside


Life is so lonely for everyone on earth.
We try to fill our time here with people, things and lists to do, but loneliness is always inherently within us, taunting us with it's disregard of love and happiness.
Old or young, when people we have placed in our lives - through marriage or friendship - die or leave us for someone else, we are left with a gaping hole - a total emptiness for the rest of our days.
It's far beyond just sadness - it's a brokenness held deeply in our souls.

    Everybody on earth has to face this gaping hole in some way or other. Very truly we are forced to live with it but can never be healed as some poeople think...... very well depicted fact. (Report) Reply

    What I believe gets broken is the ability to leap fearlessly as we once did when we were young. In that turning finding different ways to love...as Ghandi put it.....Be the change you want to see in the world. No reason one loss can't inspire another's gain. (Report) Reply
