We’re All Human

“I think one of the most universal human experiences is feeling alone. You’d never know it, but there’s most likely tons of people feeling the exact same way.”

-JD from Scrubs

This has been a rough month for me healthwise, physically and mentally. When I get stuck in one of these states, the hardest thing for me to do is be around other people because you can only fake a smile for so long. Its so hard when you feel like no one could possibly understand what you’re going through, but the truth is, as humans, we are more similar than we think. We yearn for the same elemental things: unconditional love, companionship, a sense of true self-worth. And when these things can’t be found we start looking for someone to blame, usually beginning with ourselves. In a way, I think the root of these problems is learning to forgive, no matter who you blame, and honestly, there is nothing harder than forgiveness. I’ve been winding down this path for a long time now and I’ve discovered some things about myself I never realized. It’s been very difficult to face these facts, but I try to take it day by day. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Here’s hoping we can all find our way.

  1. Heyo Maggie. Just wanted to say again that I admire how you’re making such a conscious (and public) effort to change how you think. Keep it up!

    Much love from the west coast~
