One of my favorite inspirational quotes: The broken will always be able to love harder than most. Once you've been in the dark, you learn to appreciate everything that shines. So much wisdom in two little sentences.
It isn't fair when you know a simple thought from them could rearrange you. All that remains is the hope that somewhere along the way you discarded a stronger more vivacious version of yourself. A fragment to be called upon when you have nothing left.
