Understand Me!

Ever since I have gotten back from India, I find it hard to hear the words, "me too."
Rob Bell says that the most comforting words to hear are, "me too."

He is right.

I never knew how right he was, until I couldn't find anyone who could understand me, or relate to the way I was feeling at that exact moment.

There are things I find hard to share with my family, because I know they just don't understand.
I love my family, but they cannot relate with me at this point in my life.

Last time I went to WWU, I felt like I was ready to explode if I didn't talk to someone about how I was feeling.

I spilled my heart out to Kristina and Kara, and I felt like a million pounds had been lifted off...
You know why?

"Me too."

Hearing, "Hillary, I know exactly how you are feeling," made me feel like my world made sense again.

Elliot just came home two days ago, I love having someone near who wants to talk about her time Bangladesh.

I can relate, she can understand, and I am thankful.
