You are not alone.
You can imagine a thought so socially unacceptable, so perverse, so out of left-field it even shocks you…but someone has already thought it before.
You can feel an emotion so complex you’re not even sure how to describe it. The mixture of joy, regret, jealousy, and pride…but someone has already felt it before.
You can string together a group of words in such an eloquent and deft manner that surely this time you will be celebrated as an innovative wordsmith…but someone has already strung those words together in that combination before.
This does not make you special.
You are not.
This makes you human.
We all shape each other’s worlds. We are as interconnected through chain reactions as our atoms are to the stars.
Thank you for being here.
Thank you for existing.
No one ever has it all figured out.
Know that we are all in this together.
