Hello again! I’m typing this with about 10% left of juice on my laptop before all things fall apart. Just kidding. Anyway, fixing what’s broken.
I think that somedays when we see how broken people are on the streets, in your class, at your workplace and they look like they’re holding up pretty well on the outside but on the inside it just seems like there’s something that they’re lacking and being human looks a little like trying to pick up the pieces just because we like to fix things, we like to clean up messes at times or even out do ourselves every time something goes wrong. As real and truthful that I can put this, we can’t fix everything because we’re only human. But we just can’t help but to want to fix stuff.
I do that too, whenever I see that there’s something that I think I can do to help to make things much better than it was but I can’t do everything which is alright. I try to fix people. I’m not saying that they’re irreparable or that they need fixing but on somedays it’s pretty easy to catch on and see that people are hurting, going through a season, screaming on the inside needing help. Not entirely because they need help. They don’t but I think that they do.
What attracts us about someone’s brokenness is that we think that we’re able to fix things and they’ll be alright after. We’re not wrong, they’re not wrong. Our inclination is to patch things up and move along with life or think about the damage that’s been done.
But some things just cannot be fixed. We always think about the past and what we’ve all had – the good times and we’d definitely love to go back to the beauty of it all but it just can’t be salvaged.
Life is a lesson that you can’t always fix things and aside from being unable to fix things, what’s mended could be broken again – over and over again like a vicious cycle. So why? Why do we even try? Apart from moral obligations, I feel that it’s some times the things that we did in the past and been through that we don’t want to see someone else experiencing the things that were our mistakes.
