I’ve been cheerleading and doing gymnastics my whole life with minor injuries. I also have done CrossFit to try and get my dream body, once I was very close and happy with my self I broke my ankle. I haven’t gone to the hospital or anything yet and I think I hurt my shin from walking on it. My whole family tells me to give up on all of my sports because there is no point to now. I really don’t want to but I technically am permanently hurting all of my joints. Everything pops when I move any joints. And they say if I continue I will be in a shit load of pain when I’m older. What do I do?

Well, it's too early to tell, but your body is being stressed out from the intensity. Perhaps just slowing it down and talking to a physician or something should give you a better idea on how to continue your passions without overstressing your body.
Think of it this way, if you do too much, you could get an injury, a pretty serious one and that could just be the final nail of the coffin to your passions.
Do not enough, your body won't be as fit and doing some of the stuff might tire you out before getting any satisfaction out of it.
So, maybe just find a balance, let your body rest, then test the waters so to speak.0

Being great is sometimes a lot of pain, I'm a dancer, and sometimes it takes a toll on my body. But I'm never giving it up because its my passion. Do what you love, yes its going to hurt sometimes, but loving it is you motivation to keep doing it. Put some ice on that and go to the hospital before it gets worse.1
