I know this for some time now, but I keep learning it. There’s such a relief in knowing that no one really knows how to win at life. Because it’s made of moments, good, better, learning moments. And the relief comes from the certainty that we all have fears and happiness, anxiety and thrill, sadness and love. Clichées are clichées for a reason, and when I say we are all human, I mean it in the most we-all-love-and-deserve-to-be-loved kind of way. It is such a relief in not feeling alone, because the more I connect with people, the more I know I am not alone, that I am loved. I want to hug you, the one who reads, and tell you I love you. As odd as it sounds, I love you, because you are, but the most important lesson I learned in this life, is that I love you because I learned to love myself.
There have been times in my life when I revelled in the sadness that I thought to be only mine, in the uniquness of my feelings, but there was an indescribable loneliness in that. Heart-wrenching, mind-breaking loneliness, that I am willingly swapping for the comfort knowing I am not alone gives me.
Dear reader, belive me when I say, you’re not alone. If no one else sees you, hears you, or wants, I do. Just show me your hand, and I’ll take it 🙂
