    More bored than broken certainly although we are all broken to some degree and those that do not realize it, more so than those that do often enough.

    Yes. Knew I was broken. Realized I was even more broken then I thought I was. Not sure if I have found the fix? I may have just gotten used to being broken. Like some odd three legged dog who hobbles about because that is all it can do.

    Not really, as described in OP. But with pains, and challenges, and seeking growth, yes.

    I said: what about my eyes?
    He said: Keep them on the road.

    I said: What about my passion?
    He said: Keep it burning.

    I said: What about my heart?
    He said: Tell me what you hold inside it?

    I said: Pain and sorrow.
    He said: Stay with it. The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

    I'd have to disagree (here's that stereotypical ENTP argumentativeness coming out).

    Firstly, while everyone has their imperfections and insecurities and hardships, referring to everyone as "broken" is a dramatic stretch. A person having weaknesses, bad experiences, etc. doesn't mean they are necessarily broken. More like they just carry things with them that suck. The effects of these sucky things vary from person to person, which brings me to my next point...

    Whether these bad experiences, adverse events, whatever, actually affects a person enough to "break" them is entirely dependent on circumstances. How capable is this person at handling adversity/stress/tough times? How serious was the event in question? How good are they at letting things go and moving on with their life? Therefore, people who don't believe that they are broken, are not necessarily more broken than others. There is a strong possibility that they just aren't broken in the first place.
