Everyone has a sad story.
It is part of what keeps us alive, makes us real. Some stories are more tragic than others. Some include more pain, more tears, more loss and more sorrow.
But, in the end is it a competition to see who’s past included more pain? No, it is the recognition of the stories, the empathy between us. Connecting us on a deeper level. Allowing us to feel one another’s pain.
To cope together. To grow together. To realize we are not alone.
