I used to feel that way. But after some soul searching, I learned I didn't have to have those feelings. I am still a work in progress but I know I am feeling better each day

A part of me died when I was 21. I have never recovered so I am essentially broken. Most days I live with it without any drama but other days I feel mentally and emotionally crippled.

I understand that one. I have felt broken since I was 15. Every day, I felt like damaged goods, dead inside. Then I sat here one night recently thinking of every horrible thing I went through & every horrible thing said to me. I realized feeling they way I did meant they won and I would be damned, if I gave anyone the satisfaction of thinking they destroyed me. I know it doesn't work for everyone but I am taking my life back and building a better one that I will never let anyone take away from me again

It may take years to become whole again...inch by inch... In 10 years you will be a different person.

As each light goes out, it makes the still illuminating ones seem brighter.

Dont we all die a bit each day? Some days more than others.

I'm still above ground, and still kicking and raising hell. Not much wrong with that.

When people say they feel "dead inside", I think they are referring to a feeling you have when terrible things happen, when people you love pass away, or, to say it another way, when you feel like you can't recover something that used to be part of your life. You feel like a part of you has gone away and will never return. Of course, the feeling varies from people to people, and from situation to situation. I'm not saying that my experience is equal to everyone else's. But for me, at least for now, I prefer to look at it from an optimistic point of view. So, even though there have been difficult times, and some things and people will never come back, I feel like I'm not dead inside, because I'm still here, I still can do things to be happier and become a better person, I still can take care of other people and make them happy, and I still have the memories of the people and the times that are gone. Sometimes things can be painful, but the pain just means that I'm very much alive to feel it (forgive me if this sounds terribly cliche).

Hopefully that makes sense. :P :)

You are a bit clichéd...but in a nice way.

Being dead inside has more to do with the individual and possibly experiences - like maybe rape or abuse...suffering from war? - not necessarily other people passing away...

I see. Thank you for the explanation. :) I haven't had any personal experience so terrible as the ones you described, so I guess I've never directly felt "dead inside" in that sense.

Now the question is: are you lucky or missing an experience?

Both. :P

I'm lucky for having been able to live comfortably so far, but of course I'm also not getting to experience what it's like to live through a terrible hardship.

And I hope it continues that way. I wouldn't deliberately choose that a horrible thing happen to me, and I wouldn't wish that kind of experience to anyone.
