It’s too early for this. Why am I still awake? Well, told be told, I rarely sleep. My body just got used to not sleeping til about 7 in the morning-ish. I know it’s horrible, don’t remind me. Well, I’m sitting here on Twitter, Twitter is where I go when I am bored. I forgot what post I first saw, but I saw a #ThingsThatDidntBreakMe trending. With a little bit of clicking here and there, I found the first post about it. Yay!
I thought to myself, this could be fun. I like to join in on these trending hashtags sometimes, you meet interesting people and sometimes it’s fun. But after the last hour of being on this hashtag, I realized something. My life isn’t as bad as I thought. Like, I know everyone can have their version of a bad life, bad season. No one is perfect, we all have our mistakes, our loses, our bad choices, our broken hearts. It’s in those dark moments, that you see the stars. I know that quote goes something like that, play along.
I did my best to go through the #ThingsThatDidntBreakMe and heart as many as possible and leave comments on some. It’s something about broken people, they’re easier to relate to. It’s like broken people like to see other people broken, so we put aside our troubles and struggles and try to help the other person. You don’t know the power in showing a complete stranger love. You don’t know what they’re going through. You could of just possibly saved their life.
That’s why I do these life lessons blog posts, I hope someone is able to walk away with knowing that they’re not alone. No one wants to be alone, no one wants another person to be alone. Broken sad people know what it feels like, so they don’t want others to feel like that. I’ve learned that a couple hundred people from all over the world connected over the last 4 hours this has been trending and it’s changing lives. It moved me to write this post.
