The first time I saw this a few weeks ago while walking home one day, it made me think for a moment about the situation I was in, and subsequently helped me to realize that I wasn't alone, despite the fact that I did actually feel very alone, and was very alone in a literal sense. Things have drastically improved for me though since then, but every time I see this little sidewalk note from a very caring and thoughtful stranger, it's a reminder that even in the worst moments, someone in the universe is sharing our feelings. We must remember that as difficult as it is to endure, sadness is an unfortunate necessity in life... for without sadness, we have nothing to measure happiness with in contrast.
Whoever placed this on this sidewalk, thank you. It means a lot and I hope "they" are feeling less sad today as well.
