Just the other day, I received a note (in the form of a Medium response) from an old friend that was perfect. It was just what I’d been waiting for and I didn’t even know it. But when it came, something… rested. I was affirmed. And it was amazing.
No matter how dialed-in our personal thinking is, it’s so nice getting affirmation from an outside voice that reflects exactly what that internal dialogue is nudging us toward.
As I write this, I see so clearly…
We are not separate.
We are each other’s reflection.
We aren’t designed to live in isolation.
Because without the mirror,
we are merely a fuzzy notion.
Something left with frayed ends.
Until that reflection comes along and reveals to us what’s impossible to see ourselves.
That feels better.
