Stuff I Love: Fix You...

This song seems appropriate today.  Appropriate because the country came together to try to fix the broken hearts and souls that were literally shattered ten years ago.  And we're still trying to fix it.

Lately (like in the last few years) it's a song that always seems to come on the radio when I'm driving alone at night with my heart hurting.  This is a song that I've been living my entire life it seems - with me being the one to fix things.  Make them better.

But in the last 5-7 years or so, it's a song that breaks my heart instead of makes me feel stronger.  It breaks my heart because I've come to realize that I don't know if there's truly ever been a time in my life that I could trust that there was someone strong enough in my life to wrap their heart and soul around me, protect me and "fix me."  To step outside of themselves and just be there for me.  It seems so selfish of me to even feel that way, but I know that I too deserve what I have so freely given.  One day I hope to know that feeling.  Safe.

  1. Came across your blog (now I don't even remember where!) and have been reading backwards. I think we must secretly be related somehow. I have basically said the exact things you wrote in this post, about this song. When I first heard it I thought I was the one trying to fix my boyfriend, my friends, my family, etc. Now I just want someone strong and patient enough to fix ME! Hang in there :)
