I believe we’ve all had a feeling of having already experienced a certain situation. It feels all too familiar and you can almost remember it happening, only that the details are far too sketchy to put together. It reminds me of something my Dad always says to me whenever I’m feeling down. He says ”whatever you’re going through, someone else has gone through the same thing and survived”. And he’s right. Some of our experience may feel familiar but it might be because we know of or have heard of someone who has had that experience. And so in moments when I feel down I try to draw on the strength of those who have risen above their challenges, knowing that someday I’ll stand strong having overcome my situation.
