Perhaps you feel alone. Despite all the people around you, it may feel like nobody truly understands. Our past, our circumstance, & our future set us so far apart. You can stand in the middle of a crowd & never feel as alone as in that moment. Despite our differences, we try. We try so hard to blend in. Every day we pretend to laugh at jokes we don’t find funny, to listen to songs that we don’t like, & to be the person people expect us to be. We forget. We forget that no matter how different we are, in the end, we all stare at the same sky. We all feel depressed at times, the cause may have been different, however, it doesn’t change the fact that at some level we do understand. Among the 7 billion inhabitants of this world, take comfort in the fact that no matter what happens, you are never alone. Someone does understand. Maybe its not me. Nor is it your parents, or your friends. But someone does understand. So if you’re ever feeling lonely, misunderstood, & alone, look at the moon. Someone, somewhere, is looking at it too.
