"Last year, I was at my favorite bookstore. I went there because I was feeling sort of fragile and overwhelmed, and one of the things that usually makes me feel better is a bookstore. I was looking through the cards, the ones that have quotes on the front, and they're all big, inspirational, "seize the day" - type quotes, from people like Eleanor Roosevelt and Albert Einstein. And if you read them on a good day, you're like, "I will Eleanor Roosevelt, I will change the world one tiny moment at a time!" But on kind of a cranky, bad day, you read them and you think, "Well that's why you people are famous, because you do wonderful inspirational things, and all I do is try to get through the day without crying or loosing my mind." So I was looking at these cards,... I looked at this whole big wall of cards, and each one was making me feel more broken down and scooped away inside, so far from inspiration and hope. Then I saw one in the corner, in black and white, and it said, "You too? I thought I was the only one."

And it hit something inside me, and in the card isle at Schuler's, I started to cry. Really cry, like the kind of tears that have been waiting to come out for a long time. That night, I didn't need big, great, beautiful words from important people. I just needed to know that I wasn't alone. "You too? I thought I was the only one.""
