We will never be able to perfectly share with others how we perceive or experience life. We may forever remain little islands adrift through consciousness, fading in and out on the horizon. Know this: if you do feel alone or forsaken, out there somewhere, at some time in the past there is a person in this abyss who has shared those feelings. I hope others stand up for you if that time comes when you need them too and if they don't then I hope you'll believe me when I say that you can make it through…
