Brokenness is like a disease, if not treated it can take over your life. And often times the one that is broken is unable to heal on their own. When a relationship is ending be it a marriage, friendship or partnership it is important to take an honest look at the role that you played in that disconnect, though hard, it is helpful to go deep within yourself evaluate you and determine if there is anything you could have done differently. The different could be from the way you interacted (communication, compromising, openness, etc.) in the relationship to just were you true to yourself in the relationship. Take ownership!
The saying hurt people, hurt people is very true. I recently had an experience where a broken person tried to hurt me by saying something that was so untrue, outside of my character and just down right rude, that it deeply hurt me. Initially I didn’t recognize the true issue but as I told the story to one of my confidants, I realized this person is not seeing the true issue for what it is, but instead is STILL trying to find fault and blame in me for the break down in our relationship. Again take ownership and be honest with yourself then the healing can begin. Don’t allow someone else’s brokenness become your broken mess!
