Is There Anybody Out There?
Is there anybody else out there like me? Sometimes, it feels like there isn’t, and I wonder if I really am the only one. I know there must be others like me out there, there has to be, but I’m just struggling to find them. Maybe you feel like that too. [Click title to read more]
