No problem! First off, every story is unique, and no matter what characteristics it may share with another individual’s experience, it will always be different because it is yours. Every nuance is different, and every shade of the experience you share adds to the story.
Secondly, when stories are similar we start to recognize that many of the experiences that might make us feel alone are, in fact, shared in some way by others. This can be empowering and comforting, and at the very least it may serve to build, or add to, a community. This is just as worthy as finding a new narrative or experience. So we invite you to submit!
