I heard this the other day:
“You have no idea what it feels like.”
Ha. I do not pretend to be omniscient; life is complicated and intricate and part of the magnificent beauty of it is in its minute details that are unique to each person that breathes. However, that comment is sharpened into a dagger when thrust into the soul of someone who has indeed lived through a parallel hell.
We never know what ghosts are taunting people in their nightmares. You don’t know your best friend as well as you think you do. You don’t know your family as well as you think you do. Frankly, you probably don’t know yourself as well as you think you do.
And that’s all I really have to say about that.
