“Right now, there are people all over the world who are just like you. They’re lonely. They’re missing somebody. They’re in love with someone they probably shouldn’t be in love with. They have secrets you wouldn’t believe. They wish, dream, hope, and they look out the window whenever they’re in the car or on a bus or train and they watch the people on the streets and wonder what they’ve been through. They wonder if there are people out there like them. They’re like you and you could tell them everything and they would understand. You’re never alone.”
What a great reminder of the fact that there really is others out there who have been through our same struggles, who have suffered the same disappointments, who have lived through the same type of loss, who have felt like they are all alone too… We really aren’t ever alone in our feelings and fears and dreams because there is always someone, somewhere who knows how you feel and who understands what you are going through. And even if you don’t know that person personally, you at least know that someone else can understand and empathize with you, and somehow knowing that just helps….
I truly believe we are never alone. Whether we have a friend that understands, or we know that somewhere out there is a total stranger who understands, or we simply trust the fact that God himself understands what we are going through – in every situation we can know that we never have to feel it alone.
Thanks for being a part of my life. It helps remind me that I am not alone either. I hope today is an incredible day for all of you!
