We Are Broken


It's an interesting thing to have your heart broken. For the world you thought you knew come crashing down with one sentence. That's all it takes -- just a few words in a stupid text message -- to destroy everything.

It's an interesting thing to find out something so huge and so devastating that you can't even comprehend that it's real. It seems like a nightmare in the back of your mind until you think about it again and realize that it's not a nightmare -- it's really happening.

It's an interesting thing to hurt so badly for another person that you can't possibly hold yourself in one piece. To feel such despair and helplessness that you will surely split in two.

It's an interesting thing to have your trust shattered in one of the few people you should be able to trust the most.

I'm so sorry Cara. My heart is broken for you and the hurt you are going through. I am still learning how to be a good friend when there's no way for me to fix things. All I know to do is make sure you know that I am here for you in whatever way you need me to be. You have our prayers and our love and whatever else we can give you.

Oh, Cara. I'm not sure what it is going on, but my heart hurts for you, whatever it is. Please know that I am here for you, no matter what time of day, and no matter what you need. Send me an e-mail or a text when you are ready to talk and I'm all ears.

I saw this last night and I wanted to be a good friend and think of something profound to say that would make it all better. But nothing came to me and I felt lame as I laid in bed afterwards.

I guess sometimes there just isn't a right thing to say, especially when you don't really know the situation.

I'm sorry about whatever it is. Going through painful experiences are never fun or nice.

I love you Cara. I'm so sorry about this whole situation and how unfairly we all get hurt. You put it all into words so well. We will somehow get through it, and heal it, and move on stronger and better than ever.
