Where You Fell

I've been listening obsessively to a new album lately, and there is a set of lyrics in one of the songs that I just love love love every time I hear it...

"i believe that you fell so you could land next to me
cause I have been where you are before
And I have felt the pain of losing who you are
And I have died so many times, but I am still alive."

"I believe that you fell so you could land next to me."

I love that idea...  that we are put into each other's circles for a reason.  I love the thought that we go through things and learn hard lessons so that when someone else goes through them later, we can be there for them. Maybe we can't solve their problems quickly any faster than we could solve our own.  But, we can walk with them and hold their hand and say, "I've been here before.  You're not alone and you will get through."

And people do that for us, as well. We fall next to people who can hold our hand, too.  And who will walk with us and help us through the struggles.

I love that.

So yes...  I have been where you are, and I have felt the same pain.  But, I am still alive, and I promise that you will be too.
