"You’re not alone. Everything is going to be okay. Isn’t that what we all need to hear once in a while? What we need to believe? Adoption, addiction, incarceration, divorce, whatever life is throwing at us, we need to know that we’re not alone. Similarly, we need to feel like we matter. Seems to me that these two needs satisfy each other. I feel like I matter when I help someone else. And someone else feels like they matter when they help me. We all need each other." - Anne Royse, Love, Me
