Even if they named their feeling to me, as friends often do, I wouldn’t know the whole story; but I would grow closer to understanding and thus empathizing with them. Empathy connects us in love; it is the hope of the world. That is why I write this blog. There is a caveat, however. I share with the hope that you will take it all in without judgment. Consider me just another person on the street that you can love. Use my words to help understand and love yourself.
