STOP AND THINK – All cases are unique, and very similar to others. (T. S. Eliot, playwright and poet)
Sounds like a contradiction in terms, doesn’t it? It’s true that virtually every circumstance in life is unique to your own personal experience. But, it’s also true that “There’s nothing new under the sun.” So, when you feel like you’re alone and no one else can appreciate what you’re going through, stop to consider that others have had similar experiences and survived.
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
