“Sometimes the most healing thing to do is remind ourselves over and over and over, other people feel this too.” ~ Andrea Gibson
We are never truly alone…
“Sometimes the most healing thing to do is remind ourselves over and over and over, other people feel this too.”
It is something of a fact that humans do not, and cannot, live in a void. Oh, we can try to tune ourselves out, shut ourselves off, but our essence, our experiences will still have a universally shared thread to them.
All of us are human, after all, and in that we each of us feel and sense and live and laugh and love and hate. We all participate in living and while we each have our unique knowledge and views, we also have communal ones as well.
When something hurts one of us, it in turn has the capacity to hurt all of us, just as when something brings joy to one of us it has the ability to bring joy to all of us. Yes, there are as many variables as there are humans to this, but boiled down to the pure basics, we are all the same.
We, each of us, are never alone in how we are feeling. Oh, our experiences are unique to us, to be sure, but our feelings are universal in a deep way.
If you are hurting, others are hurting too and have hurt and will hurt If you are sad, if you are upset, if you are mad at how the world is, it’s okay, others are feeling all these things too. You have so much more support than you may ever realize and you are providing that same support too.
The more we acknowledge our own humanity, the more we acknowledge others and the more we begin to heal. We must remind ourselves over and over and over again that other people are feeling what we feel too. We are not alone nor is anyone else.
