“Broken”: An Inspiring Story

It may be difficult to relive the past, but we must come to terms with it, to seek peace so that the pain no longer lingers into your future. You cannot change the past, but you can definitely take this present time as a present, to make changes necessary for a brighter future.

There are plenty of people who would appreciate the healing doses of (not only poetry and prose) but also of story writing. Currently, I am working on a book I had started back in 2013. Haha. Yeah I know long time ago!! I think that’s got to be the longest writer’s block ever! This story was inspired by a dream I had back in 2013, and I was compelled to record this dream. What was once a two-page journal entry in my notebook evolved into 80 pages!! Then, writer’s block came and stayed for years.

Now I’m back at it May 2021, and I am determined to finish this inspiring story, it will be titled “BROKEN.” I’ve went from 80 to 185 pages within these couple of months.

So what’s this story about?

It is a realistic/spiritual fiction that takes place in the late ’90s. It is about a woman who overcomes past traumas from her childhood and her relationship with an abusive narcissist.

She was desensitized due to having witnessed her mother go through it.
But then someone came into her life who made her realize the severity of physical and mental abuse in her relationship.

Luckily, she was able to leave that situation, but then finds herself broken as the aftermath of it all. There’s also this constant fear she has of being found by her abuser.
She seeks healing and wisdom to put the pieces back together.

As she goes through her awakening process, She gets these flashbacks from the past, that do trigger her, but soon enough she begins to understand the pattern that must be broken. She braces herself, and is determined to break that generational curse.

Her vivid dreams also inform her. Dreams range from nightmares & spiritual attacks -> to her learning more about the psychologically deadly pattern she found herself in. She’s determined to make something out of the shattered pieces.

She’s in her early 20s, still alot of time ahead of her to make those important changes in her life for the better.
She does NOT let go of her kind heart. She doesn’t allow the pain to make her become whom she hates.

Nothing wrong with having a good heart, just don’t give it to the wrong hands.

Overall, this story may be intense, but it does have a positive ending.

Anything is possible once you put your mind into it, thus the power of the mind.
