The most impactful thing anyone has said to me as of late was while I was really pouring my heart out about how I feel about myself and my life.
She said “Not to discredit your experience, but it’s not special. That happens to everybody.”
I’m not gonna hold you up at first I was extremely offended, but the more I think about it the more I understand it.
A few years ago I blogged about how I learned that the enemy’s strongest weapon (in my experience and observation) is making ppl feel isolated in their struggle.

Suffering is even harder when you think you’re alone in it. Tell your story to ppl. Eventually you’ll see you’re not as special or alone as you thought.
