Being broken could mean a variety of things. It could mean a relationship could have a small blimp or has gone wrong, you aren’t feeling up to par, anxiety, being single, finding Mr/Ms Right, stress, other stuff or a combination of sorts.
Well when it’s a combination of sorts, it can be tiring. For example a person may be looking for Mr Right, finishing up the last bit of college, job hunting/looking for job after graduation, fighting a invisible illness, slowly working on losing weight around scheduling shenanigans, expectations, and with other sorts of things that life brings along. After dealing with these different things for a decent amount of time, I just don’t exactly know what I want to do. I feel lost, alone, slightly numb, anxious, and a hince of not exactly knowing what to do in a lot of situations.
After those feelings are felt for numerous of years, you almost feel like a lost soul with no one to go on the adventure with. Loner you ask? Not always the case maybe if you do see someone who is supposedly shy or quiet, you should be like “hey, how’s things going?”, start a normal conversation, be a friend, be there, and help piece back the puzzles that were taken out. But, being supposed quiet or shy person isn’t always that way is that they’re used to not anyone being there or around.
Being there for a person who may be broken may want help, a friend, to open their space, want their own space, or needing someone to recognized them or being a part of the crowd.
If a broken person is speaking out. It’s best to listen, recognize what they’re saying, respond properly, offer help if necessary, be there for them, don’t be the one time helper or brush them off in anyway shape or form (it may take a lengthy process for the pieces to be put back together), don’t stigmatize them for their situation, choice or cause of being that way, and to be don’t be rude, unkind, brush-off, don’t say something like “perk up butter cup things will get better soon” cause it will most likely make things 10x worse, help them recognize what types of problems that could factor into their situation, work on the problems as a team, don’t shove them into back the darkness that they were once in, and help them remind them of how they was once was and teach them how to recreate those feelings and memories of all the good times.
Some people needs a medical professional (some people may not), spouse, significant other, family, friends, classmates, co-workers, acquaintances, or even a stranger.
