How many times have you said, “Welcome to my world” or “I’ve been there” with the intention of sharing some empathy? When you say it, it’s usually to someone who has experienced something similar, if not the same, as you. That experience can be an interaction with another person, a situation in public or private – you name it. The essence is still the same: I know how you feel.
Well I'm in someone else's world right now and I don't know whose it is. But I'm pretty sure no one knows how I feel.
