Starter string

I have never used a lawn mower in my life until last week. I tried to start it without pulling down on the handle thing while pulling the starter string. I think I pulled the starter string too hard because it won't rewind. So now I can't use it because the string is all out. Does anyone know how to fix it? And if so, please step by step. I dont know anything about mowers and I have to fix it myself! I hope its not broken!
