    Most people have a natural optimism. "Broken" means that something happened in a person's life to break their spirit. Some words to describe a broken person are: dejected, defeated, depressed, etc.

    Usually it means broken in spirit. For example, the Great Depression broke the spirit of many Americans because they lost their jobs and their dignity and became listless and depressed.

    It means shattered in the soul...which means having a crushed and empty spirit and being shocked emotionally.

    something happened to them that renders them unfixable. like, scarred for life - broken. it generally refers to one's spirit, specifically.
