Thought For The Day

If you’ve ever felt like damaged goods in this world, too far broken, ignored or otherwise, things I spoke about in yesterday’s article, then the following quotes may help!

“You might be broken, but you are not damaged goods. You aren’t any less valuable than those who consider themselves ‘whole’. So please don’t sell yourself short. Don’t let anyone buy you at half price, then return you a week later with more damage than you had before.” (S.T.G.)

“When you’ve become so damaged in life, when someone wants to give you what you truly deserve, you have no idea how to respond to it and often have the tendency to push them away instead.” (Anonymous)

“All of us are a little damaged, but we are not damaged goods. We are just unpolished diamonds.” (Ria)

“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken. It is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a lot in this world.” (Anthon St. Maarten)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
