One of things that makes a challenging experience more challenging is feeling alone.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that you are alone in your difficulties because you’re not.
With a planet of over 7 billion people I’d like to think that pretty much all my challenges are shared by at least one other person on this earth.
But it isn’t a misery loves company thing or a let us rejoice in the fact that your life is just as challenging as mine.
It’s more about the fact that if 264276 other people have experienced the same challenges as me (failure for example), then maybe it’s not as big of a deal as I thought.
