Why do I feel so tainted? Why do I feel like you and all the rest are pure and fresh and clean, and I am dirty? Why do I feel ruined, used? Why do I feel like I've lost all innocence?

I'm sure I never did anything to break myself.
But I feel so broken.

I thought I was healing, but maybe the bones have to be cracked again, just to be re-set right.

But all the rest are not pure and fresh and clean. It's gospel. It's why we need Jesus. Just not everyone realises it.

Your eyes are being opened. Maybe you're seeing the world around you as it actually is. We grow up, we make mistakes, we learn.

You are growing. Growing wiser, stronger, growing in your understanding of God.

These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 1 Peter 1:7

Thanks, Fi, for the perspective :)
Great verse, too.
