Quote of the Day: Echoes

“We are all echoes of each other.

We are all humans and feel both despair and happiness. Our similarities, as a species, are staggering.

And our mental fragility is directly tied up with our humanity.

We have nothing to be ashamed of in being human, any more than a tree should be ashamed of having branches.

Let’s accept our own nature.

Let’s be kind to ourselves and to each other.

Let’s never add to the pain by blaming ourselves. We are all so weird that, really, none of us are.

There are seven billion versions of strange on this freak wonder of a planet.

We are all part of that.

All freaks.

All wonderful.” 

Matt Haig, Reasons to Stay Alive
