Why damaged people live good, f*ck better and love best

If our pasts decide who we become, then give me a past worth growing from.

I don’t know about you, but I think damage is endearing. I value dark histories, growing pains and repressed memories. While a lot of people like to shy away from potential partners because they’ve survived damage and bad pasts, I embrace them.

We all leave the nest with a few dents and bruises. As Mitch Albom said, “Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.”

No one comes out of life without a few scars, and even the cool kids have demons. But some people have faced challenges that have truly changed and damaged them in ways that aren’t fixed by 401ks and new apartments.

These people belong in a special class of “fucked up.” They’ve seen sh*t you’ll never know about. They’re rare people who have died and come back to life with brighter vision.

It’s like they’ve lived three times. They’ve felt the cold ground of rock bottom and danced with demons you wouldn’t want to meet. They’ve been both victim and victor. They’ve overcome trails and tribulations that have shaped them into stronger and more knowledgeable people. Because of this, they’re cool as sh*t.
