Please help me understand this sentence i.e what is the person who's writing this trying to say and also tell me if this sentence is grammatically correct or not.

The first time they kicked me out, they left me with nothing but shattered dreams.

What does this kicking out has to do with shattered dreams. I actually can't understand the tone of these lines i.e what actually these lines want to say together as a whole.

  • Without context, it's a little tricky to ascribe exact meaning. Possibly, the person being kicked out [evicted/fired from a job (got rid of)] finds that their hopes for the future of their staying wherever/for their career have been dashed, thereby shattering their dreams of could be. Grammatically, it's ok, I believe. – Livrecache Jan 21 '18 at 23:31
  • Oh thank you for answering. But one more question is the sentence structured correctly? – user136298 Jan 22 '18 at 7:31

To kick out usually means to throw out,1 but in this case, it looks like the speaker has specifically been kicked out of their home. This will likely be what shattered their dreams.2

  • What about the sentence structure and grammar are those ok? – user136298 Jan 22 '18 at 7:34
  • The sentence structure and grammar are perfectly fine. – Myles Jan 22 '18 at 9:38
