OK, I admit it: sometimes knowing you are not alone in how you feel, knowing there are others like you struggling the same way you do, does help. If only for awhile but then again when you fight for air only for awhile is just enough to save you from drowning.

"One of the ideas I’ve clung to most of my life is that if I just try hard enough it will work out. If I work hard, I will be spared, and I will get what I desire, finding the cave opening over and over again, thieving life from the abyss. This sturdy belief system has a sidecar in which superstition rides. Until recently, I half believed that if a certain song came on the radio just as I thought of it, it meant that all would be well. What did I mean? I preferred not to answer that question. To look too closely was to prick the balloon of possibility."

Meghan O'Rourke, "The Long Goodbye"

One step at a time, one breath at a time , repeat it over and over... until you make it to the finish line.
