There is Always Hope for the Broken Ones
The broken ones just like you and me. The only difference is that they have a fractured soul. Maybe you think that they don’t have any hope. However, broken people can come back, put their pieces together, and keep moving forward.
It’s true that life won’t be the same. After all, the experiences of the past mark you. The way you were affected positively or negatively influences your future.
However, there’s always hope for the broken ones.

The Broken Ones Didn’t Choose Their Lives
A broken soul is a victim of its circumstances. These circumstances were out of their hands and control. We’re talking about people who have been violated, mistreated, assaulted, and hurt in the deepest part of their being.
The pain is much worse when it comes from inside. It causes you to break into a thousand pieces. No one can put the pieces back together: no one except for you.
How can you survive after being raped? How can you trust after an abusive relationship? In these cases, the wisest thing to do is to see a professional. They will give you the steps and advice that let you keep moving forward.
Despite this, life will never be the same as before it occurred.
You haven’t done anything. It’s not your fault that this happened. However, you can bounce back stronger and more resilient if you have the desire to do so.
Counting on people to support you and your situation is essential. Now more than ever, you need strong people to lean on when you hit rock bottom.
Step by step, you slowly put one foot in front of the other. Slowly, you heal from your frustration and anger. Then, you heal from the sad fact that you don’t know why this occurred to you.
Nadia Murad’s Story
With the recent conflict that’s going on in Syria, we find Nadia Murad’s story. She, along with other women, was rescued after being kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery.
Despite all that happened, Nadia Murad has become an activist. She’s only 21 years old and is fighting for human rights. She said the following:
“I’ve seen thousands of refugees pass through the same thing my family did. We were spread everywhere. We also know that the Islamic State is trying to exterminate us. I think about this and this is what gave us strength, all of our strength, to continue.”
Without a doubt, what she went through, what destroyed her from the inside out, is the same thing that gives her the courage to move forward. Plus, it also gives her the ability to fight what happened to her.
Other people can be in the same situation that she and other women found themselves in. Thinking about this, she was urged to find justice. She knows better than anyone how much she suffered and how broken her soul is.
However, does this make her happy? In other words, what happens when all is done and there isn’t anything left to fight for?
Happiness for the Broken Ones
Happiness is different for the broken ones than it is for those who are whole. In fact, we only have to look to Nadia Murad. She’s very committed to what she does.
However, does this make her feel happy?
In the following video, we can see the same Nadia giving an eye-opening talk about this:
At the 1:18 mark, you can see how a reporter asked her if she liked her new life. Nadia responded to this with emphasis and a sincere “No.”
It isn’t easy for anyone to realize how bad reality is. Plus, it’s hard to realize the number of people who are going through the same thing that you’ve been through.
A broken soul isn’t a weak person. They’re someone strong who fights. However, maybe happiness and the beauty of life will stay in the distant past as they slowly rebuild themselves.
However, the broken ones have hope for building a future. They want to take back their lives. It may be difficult, but there is always hope ahead.
