"When we’re struggling, it’s easy to feel like we’re the only ones experiencing our kind of pain. It’s easy to feel disconnected and lonely and invisible. And when we’re in the depths of our darkness, it’s so hard to find the strength to reach out. But I promise that no matter what you’re going through, you are not alone in your struggle and you don’t have to face it alone. There are so many other people out there in the world feeling your same pain and fighting your same fight. When you find yourself feeling lost and alone, remind yourself of these fellow warriors and summon strength from your shared experience. Know that you are seen and heard and understood. Know that your feelings and struggles are validated by the hundreds and thousands of others out in the world walking your same journey. And know that no matter who you are, where you’re from, what you’re struggling with, or where you’re going, you are not alone."
