Who has shared your life the most with you?
No matter who that is, they haven't shared every moment with you. No one other than you has always been experiencing what you've experienced. You are unique.
Not alone. Not isolated. But unique. Distinctive in your gifts, talents, and abilities. Distinctive in the challenges that you've overcome. One of a kind among many, you are unique.
Everyone other than you has missed what you've been through.
Where you take your distinctions from here is completely up to you. What will you build? What will you grow? How will you serve?
It gets ever more exciting from here, doesn't it?
