I hesitate to say this, ironically, but I have felt often that I am alone in my experiences. That somehow I alone have walked through something. Just me.
There have been moments of bravery on my part, that I have shared one of these ‘only I have walked through this’ experiences. And usually when I share, I am met by the fact that I am not alone in it, nor was I ever alone. My circumstance might have been unique but the emotion, thoughts, feelings, fears where always united with others.
Have we not all ridden a tidal wave of hopelessness. Felt lost under the weight of disappointment. Seen sadness give way to joy. Fear give way to peace. Night become dawn. This was never just my story but our story.
NEVER JUST MY STORY
