We always hear the words "You are unique." This even comes with a number of variations. But when you think of it, if everyone is unique, then nobody is. I guess it's because of this that we become egocentric. We keep all in ourselves, because of this logic... That we're different from one another. But opening up our very selves makes us realize that the pain you feel is the pain someone feels/ has felt too. Yes, we are different, but our nature- our core is still the same.
